new york-based practice linearscape have submitted a design proposal for the ‘new taipei city museum of art’, the international competition for taipei city, taiwan.  this cultural campus inspires the divergent forces of nature and urbanity dissolving into a fluid environment connecting the city and its people to art and as a bridge to the riverfront. this design generates an environment where art, artists, and the people and lifestyles from whom it was inspired gather together to create a forum in which to experience and contribute to the creation of art.

to encourage this perception programmatic elements such as artist studios and residences, stores, and restaurants have been interwoven into the program. since art is a representation of the life of its time many opportunities have also been provided to allow visitors to watch life and art unfold. the collection storehouse areas are exposed to the general public in circulation corridors to invite people to further explore the entire process of creating, collecting, and experiencing art.

the children’s museum attempts to create a stimulating and engaging environment where children are unknowingly challenged to see things differently. this is provided for through the use of openings revealing unexpected conditions, spaces that encourage both group and private exploration, and the use of colored glass which would render a space differently than normally perceived. the museum is designed to be smaller in scale and organized around a rain garden reconnecting children to nature.

the design of museum minimizes waste and takes advantage of its natural setting by integrating structural and MEP systems into thermally active surfaces that not only support the building but also sustainably contribute to its heating, cooling and power requirements. this is accomplished through the use of the radiant heat transfer capabilities of water, from the adjacent river and rainwater harvesting, circulated through the building’s slabs and columns for heating and cooling, solar powered liquid desiccant dehumidification, and embedded photovoltaics on the administrative tower’s south facade.
