international firm nabito architects have sent in images of their proposal for
the taipei pop music center proposal.

‘by consuming pop music, people want to express who they are, to which group they
belong and what their identity is.’

their design is based on a horizontal slab that consists of a node at the center.

the facade is divided into sections of approximately 1m wide by means of vertical steel
pillars. within these areas LED panels are managed by a central PC that can change
the building aspect according to needs (entertainment, advertising, culture, news and events).

photovoltaic system integrated into a glass curtain wall. the building performs as
a self sufficient organic system, harvesting solar energy by day and using it to illuminate
the screen on northern facade after drak, mirroring a day’s climate cycle.

a famous example of this technology is the media wall (beijing) with its first venue
dedicated to digital media art.

it offers the most radical example of sustainable technology applied to an entire building’s
envelope to date.

the facade is constituted by glass panels that integrate photovoltaic cells.
each panel has a specific density.
