’21st Century Oasis’ by Japanese practice Sou Fujimoto Architects in collaboration with taiwanese firm Fei & Cheng Associates has taken first place in the Taiwan tower international competition for Taichung city.
The ornate structural system derived from the trunk of the Taiwanese Banyan tree, will frame a semi-outdoor interior space generating a dappled light quality as found beneath a leafy deciduous canopy.
Positioned within a green belt, the building will become an urban retreat with a green rooftop ‘island’ floating 300 meters above the City.
Representing the divine isle of formosa, the garden will reintroduce the beauty of nature into the urban fabric while
becoming a symbolic landmark visible from many points throughout the city.
