Development of Architectural Design and Drawings. Review of documents according to Tender Requirements




This project demonstrates a responsible urban plan showing urban porosity and adaptability to different needs and events.

This development will operate as a Music Centre during concerts and festivals but also it will be also used daily for other non-specific activities.

The Project extends along a bay over a surface area of more than 11 hectares and is divided into three interconnected zones. Its design was done taking into account environmental criteria.

- Zone 1: This zone consists of The Outdoor Performance Hall (12000 seats), The Large Performance Hall (5000 seats) and The Pop Music Exhibit Area that has two towers of 113 an 83 meters high.

- Zone 2: Due to the popularity of Night Markets in Taiwan we proposed this as an extra function for zone 2 over and above the requirements of the Tender. This would ensure the bay being used all year round. The Marine Culture Exhibit Area consists of a range of buildings interconnected by a promenade, which also connects with other development areas. This part of the Complex is 6 meters above the ground level, which allows skyline and seaviews long its entirety.

- Zone 3: This lineal shaped area connects two important centers of activity in the bay, which is the Ferry Station in the South and the Night Market in the North. In this zone we propose three different streets: the first of which runs through the indoor gallery, which has the entrances to the Small Performance Halls (8 units 200-400 seats); the second 8 meters above the Gallery and at the seafront; and the third is a pedestrian street which runs by the city.
