Taichung Transportation Tower

A new façade composition derived from a reinterpretation of Chinese vases décor. On the double skin façade, clouds are reproduced in several dimensions (from 14 to 20 meters in heaight) on metal perforated sheets, determining an unusual light façade, full of poetry. As counterpoint, the copper skin of the building’s first level defines horizontality.
