meterbuilt: new taipei city museum of art

los angeles based practice meterbuilt has submitted a proposal for the ‘new taipei city museum of art international design competition‘ to be located south of taipei city, taiwan. a grand stair set within the landscape leads visitors towards the bridge like structure spanning a plaza with outdoor sculptures. another tier of stairs introduces visitors into the elevated interior galleries while a vegetated roof top provides additional park space.

the horizontal building profile fosters a fusion of museum and retail programmatic spaces presents visitors with equal opportunities for both cultural and shopping experiences. the two categories of interior spaces require similar spatial qualities and lighting strategies allowing a parallel display technique to be applied throughout the interior. this blending of functions maximizes interaction and dynamic encounters with visitors along its length.

  • The fatal mistake this architect made was being ignorant to the culture, whereas an art museum is all about culture. As a Taiwanese, seeing such proposal dressed in propaganda style and simplified characters makes me laugh! Is it supposed to be a joke?
