Instead of just controlling sources of light, the futuristic design of the Taichung Convention Center includes 'blinds' that naturally ventilate the structure while also generating energy from solar power.

Designed by Beijing-based MAD Architects, the Taichung Convention Center was commissioned by the Taiwanese government to become a new local landmark. By redefining the cultural landscape of the city, it also hopes to draw attention to the city's sustainable development and growth.
