The Taichung, Taiwan Convention Center, designed by MAD Architects out of Beijing, is an eco-friendly architectural marvel that resembles volcanoes and is equipped with 'breathable skin'.

The 'skin' will ventilate the convention center as well as generate solar energy. The Taichung, Taiwan Convention Center will provide the city with a new landmark that will attract visitors and simultaneously promote a sustainably green environment.

Implications - Modern architecture has gone beyond the stones and bricks that once occupied traditional structures. Sleek designs are great, but with the eco-conscious consumer base growing, architects are transitioning into designing "green" buildings to add to their already impressive resume of contemporary aesthetics. The combination of new design with an environmental approach will have consumers enjoying a structure that reflects both their generation and their lifestyle.
