Architecture Trends and The Taipei Performing Arts Center
Another Asian architectural wonder has begun its inception as Rem Koolhaas is set to debut his latest marvel in Taipei. This time, the mastermind behind Beijing’s CCTV building is branching into the world of the performing arts – that is, with OMA’s Taipei Performing Arts Center.
The latest building is sticking to Koolhaas’ amazing use of geometry and has a structural focal point that resembles something akin to Epcot Center.
Asian architecture (and architecture trends in general ) has really taken off showing of prevalent themes of the future paired with the Russian Constructionist designers of the past. This 180 million endeavor is set to debut in 2015 and will boast three theater spaces that can be used together or solo. The mechanics of shifting its spaces to create hidden elements and new structural pieces lend a hand to the experimental theater genre, which is really taking off in Taiwan.
Rem and his team have truly designed a building of the future, and we are so glad to see that this beautiful structure will be a home for the performing arts and spread word on the world of experimental theater. Do trust that Asian architecture is definitely paving the way for modern architecture trends. World, watch out!
