american firm morphosis architects created a futuristic design for the taipei performing arts center. within walking distance of the lively shilin night market, the historic cixian temple, and the zhongshan north green boulevard, as well as the TRTS jiantan station and major roadways, the taipei performing arts center anchors a round-the-clock cultural axis. the architecture becomes, by virtue of its sculpted and indelible form, a landmark in the region—like a jewel, with distinct facets visible from all corners of the city.

 

in taipei, the theater is not an amenity reserved for the cultural elite, but is truly open to the entire community. their proposal celebrates both conceptions of theater: theater as high art, embodied by the sumptuous formal foyers leading to the striking grand theater and the intimate proscenium playhouse; and the inclusiveness of a ‘people’s theater,’ exemplified by the multiform theater’s overt and deliberate connection to the public. the differentiated form, material language, and spatial layout of each of the three theaters align with their respective roles. each theater’s distinct form in turn directly inflects the form of the overall building envelope and the complex as a whole.
