Maxthreads Architectural Design and Planning designed the National Pindon Performing Centre in Taiwan, China.
Description from the architects:
Our design for a new museum resembles tree stem like inside, hard and porous outside. The growth of the branches that forms the great cavity inside the building, intended to be a landmark announcing the arrival to the town from the west side of the intercity motorway, articulates the volume in a succession of open spaces for performance spaces and places of aggregation, spaces which accentuate the aesthetic dialogue between the contemporary and the traditional local timber art. The inner cavity allows the creation of two continuous skins, one contained within the other.
The performance programme is placed between the two skins, with the inner skin equipped with a flexible system of anchorage and electrification for multiple uses. The performing spaces and criss-crossing public paths create the building’s fluid structure. The sustainable strategy is created at the roof which allows 30% of natural sunlight to penetrate to the ground level and outdoor performance spaces.
