studios architecture: taipei pop music center

‘cicada pop’ – taipei pop music center proposal by studios architecture image courtesy studios architecture

american firm studios architecture have sent in images of their proposal ‘cicada pop’ for the taipei pop music center.

they based their design around the ‘cicada’ insect now largely extinct in taiwan. ‘cicada pop’ represents the re-birth of the natural world in a growing taipei, and a traditional symbol of transcendence in china.   the meta-scale of the new pop music center is a beacon for the ‘incomplete cityscape’ of nangang district of the city that asserts the power of pop music and youth. the cicada breaks the limitations of the project site, and turns to face the center city, the danshul river and the taiwan strait beyond.   the visitor is enveloped in a multi-leveled colorful world of pop. cicada pop is to be an icon of taipei city, where offices, shops, plazas, a main hall, hall of fame, live houses and an enormous flat-floored outdoor performance space is conceptualized as a great venue, placed above the city, with magnificent views and extraordinary acoustics.

  • I like how they have taken the idea of the insect and transformed it into an actual building. The shell is impressive with its photo volatic panels. What material is the structure made out of?
