KRIS YAO | ARTECH has been chosen to complete the new taipei museum of art in taiwan. the winning scheme plans to establish a contemporary art gallery in a location replete with significant historical, cultural and geographical features. the building will fuse the local landscape with a clear vision, forming a truly sustainable architectural work.

the design looks to transcend the typical museum typology by being a more publicly accessible institution. at the building’s base level, the ‘art streets’ and outdoor sculpture garden take a form that imitates the cracks of the near-by da han riverbed.

the main building mass is elevated over the site by a large-span structural system that not only provides flexible exhibition space, but also presents visitors with sweeping views of the surrounding landscape. the distinctive appearance of the museum is composed of vertical structural tubes set at different heights – a linear elevation derived from the reeds that occupy the site.
