here is dutch firm  MVRDV architects proposal for the TPAC – taipei performing art center international competition. their design received an honorable mention.

with their design the three theaters are covered by a blanket proposed to be made of sprayed insulated concrete (with substantial sustainable potential) and covered with PU polished painting, giving it a subtle glance. the inside of the blanket is covered with mirrors creating a reflective environment for the audience.

the blanket is punctured with glass windows that form a line pattern that is derived from a traditional taiwanese piece of textile. this pattern illuminates the foyer during the day.

  • I think that all of you, who think that oma’s projet is not as good as Mayne’s have a big problem.And that is that you concentrate on form, and that’s the biggest problem for you.If just one time you had read any book of KOOLHAAS you’d new about that.Don’t think of visual think within.
