Taipei Performing Art Center Competition

This project was the entry submitted by Gresley Abas for the Taipei Performing Arts Center International Design Competition run by the Taipei City Government. The competition was to develop a scheme for a performing arts centre to serve a variety of large scale performances including dramas and operas.

The brief included requirements for three theatre spaces of differing scale and function located in a central performing arts complex. The three theatres are contained under a “green roof” which also houses meeting rooms, a resteraunt and the fly towers.

The site has strong links with the local market and shopping district and is located adjacent to a rail station. The requirements of the site program and the strong connections with the city provided opportunity to create a new cultural and social hub for the City of Taipei.
