If this building can be built and look like the drawings, it should be done. Francois Blaciak Architect from Tokyo hopes their designs will be built for the new Taipei Performing Arts Center (aka Skippy.)

The Taiwanese Aborigines would use slabstones and pile them up to make structures, three of which would house theaters. Thus the “Round Rock Hall” of Taipei is similarly designed. Rock on, stoners.

Implications - As a result of the eco movement, consumers are looking for a deeper connection to the world around them. These consumers are looking Eastward to Buddhism for inspiration how on to live. Companies looking to forge a meaningful connection with this group should incorporate elements for Eastern philosophy and religion.
