Featuring a functional inclined greenroof crisscrossed by raised walkways, this winning design for the Taoyuan Museum of Art in Taiwan is a stand out that creates continuity with the surrounding landscape.
The project by Riken Yamamoto and Field Shop is comprised of three parts, with each part of the structure corresponding to its own function and independent entertainment space. The architects aimed at creating a place for entertainment, such as a theme park, where every visit leads to new discoveries. The inclined roof was designed to create continuity with its environment, both with the local community and the pond park the building faces.
The museum is divided into three parts: The Cube, which contains permanent exhibition and collections; The In-between, hosting installations, performing art, and workshops; The Hill, a place of attraction and connection between various activities and places.
In The Hill, there are white cubic terraces/pavilions that display artworks and an outside theatre. An inclined lift is implemented to connect the spaces.
The relationship between the residential community and the museum will continue to develop, with the community will be transformed into an artist village in the future.
As there are performances located at the art plaza and rich nature at the blue pond park, bleachers are provided for the visitors. Also, the boxes provide multipurpose space for commercial and exhibition areas for artists to sell their works and hold exhibitions.
