accessible for everyone...

NL Architects have designed the Taipei Performing Arts Centre with the aim to make the building accessible to everybody. To me it looks like a cube that has been dissected and stretched leaving usable voids of public and interactive space...i think it looks amazing!


The design is almost considered to be a table with four legs to support a table top which accomodates 3 storeys...and inside you'll find an elevated fragment of the city - a public browsing space offering cultural facilities - galleries, retail, bars and restaurants...

Balconies and terraces with different facilities are to be included in the scheme...

the performing arts centre structure will contain 3 theatres, each theatre positioned on different altitudes...

this post has me eagerly anticipating the Daniel Libeskind 'Grand Canal Square' Theatre here in Dublin...
