An edifice that encompasses intriguing works of art is expected to manifest itself by means of a visually stimulating structure. The Taipei Museum of Art does just this, but perhaps not in the way one might expect. Its monumental masses might look monolithic on the approach, and it's the expression of its envelope that earns it admiration.
The plan itself is quite compelling with the abstract arrangement of conceptual forms and enormous curving facades. Glazed ceramic extrusions embellish the building with fascinating surface effects, gradually changing in color around the gallery rounds as the walls' relationships with the sun begin to change. Murmur's Taipei Museum of Art explores what it means to enclose spaces, experimenting with unique treatments of the cladding sheets.
