This Kaohsiung Port and Cruise Centre proposal by Kubota & Bachmann hopes to infuse one of the first structures travelers to Taiwan ever see with a beautiful and iconic design reminiscent of the country's ecological riches.
With an undulating shape meant to resemble Taiwain's topography and a colorful, vibrant living roof inspired by its bird species and vegetation, this proposed version of the Kaohsiun Port and Cruise Centre would not only be a beautiful landmark but would also boast some nifty eco-benefits such as reduced runoff, cleaner air and passive cooling from its garden roof.
