Taipei invites architects to theater design contest

CULTURAL LANDMARK: The city is holding a contest for top architects to design a theater to provide local artists with a venue for shows that run for three to six months
By Mo Yan-chih
STAFF REPORTER
Friday, Jul 25, 2008, Page 2

Taipei City Government said yesterday it would invite world-renowned architects to join a competition to design a world-class theater near Shilin Night Market that would serve as a venue for large and long-running performances.

The 2.2-hectare Taipei Performing Arts Center will be built on Chengde Road across the Jiantan MRT Station. It will house a 1,500-seat theater and two smaller 800-seat theaters, Taipei City’s Department of Cultural Affairs said.

Hoping to make the center a distinctive cultural landmark on a scale similar to the National Theater and the National Concert Hall, Taipei Mayor Hau Lung-bin (郝龍斌) said the city would allocate NT$4.3 billion (US$140 million) for the project and begin an international design competition to find the best design by next year............. http://www.taipeitimes.com/News/taiw.../25/2003418450

Is this approved or just in the planning stage? It sure looks crazy!

OMG, i cant believe rem koolhaas designed that!! i would've thought a taiwanese local designed it. i think that's a terrible design and a complete eyesore!!! what's with that wooden extension and big white blob sticking out the side like a pimple waiting to burst? i hope they cancel that and start a new competition. or at least knock out that wooden extension and blob shape and keep it a simple glass cube.

I like this design because they really try to make up the gap between night market and art center.
The night market is usually dirty and crowed. It is the place for plebeian, it's part of Taiwanese culture. So it has a big gap between this two.

actually that makes alot of sense. This structure would look decent in the context of a ton of artistically designed buildings and glistening glass skyscrapers. Put it in Xinyi, DaAn, Neihu, Sun Moon Lake, or next to the Nangang exhibition hall, but definitely not Chien Tan where it will look completely out of place.

Will the thing be built at the site of the temporary night market in Shi Lin??
It's crowded there and I don't think that massive structure would suit that location??

i think taiwan has got enough match boxes man... having a ball attached to it doesn't really make it any better. but i do like the idea of integrating the night market with the centre by having kiosk stands right next to it.

eh? the ball makes it look a whole lot more interesting. If we just reduce it to a cube, it would not have any distinct character. Now that wooden add-on...

you mean the point about using the wooden box to integrate the arts center with the environment? yeah, I can kind of see where its coming from, but it simply clashes with the cube itself. If they really wanted this building to integrate with the environment, maybe they can redesign it along the lines of what the Chien Tan station looks like... a sort of modernized motif of traditional Chinese architecture along the lines of Kris Yao.

no mate. the point about the match box design. personally, i think we need to see more "radical" designs (it's pretty much a norm nowdays everywhere else... bloody hell...) on the island. more curves perhaps!? i love bilbao's guggenheim museum. would like to see designs like it in the future!?
