Spiral Mountain in Taichung
- art gallery and library
We recently entered a competition for a landmark cultural centre for Taichung. We proposed a spiralling mountain structure for both the City Library and Fine Art Gallery. The continuous bookshelves and ramping galleries wrap a vast inner atrium lit from a great oculus in the roof. The building offers visitors a climb to its summit through raised parkland on its spiralling roof, which appears to float in the landscape upon a mirrored structure lost in the trees.
