bulgarian practice design initiatives has submitted a ‘new taipei city museum of art’ proposal for the open international competition for taipei city, taiwan. the design intends to redefine the meaning of art museum and to alter the way it functions. the form organizes a relationship between visitors and the landscape. a manipulation of movement induces the production of new urban opportunities. a synthesis of the different programmatic functions: art museum, park, footbridge, services in a flexible, versatile space.

the building is sited in the middle of a park and elevated from the ground to allow the pedestrian to flow unrestricted. the park is connected from both sides continuing the existing park alleys and bike paths through the semi-outdoor park pavilions of pop-art, children’s and services

programmatic functions. the glass pavilions are open and have a visual contact with the park and da-han river. the new footbridge from ying-ge train station provides pedestrian access to the first level. the complex is organized around the idea of a path of gradation and discoveries: a 3d spatial loop where first the users get interested in the covered outdoor plaza, courtyard and lapidarium, then the users enjoy the euphoria in the contemporary fine arts museum on second and third mezzanine levels.
