The proposal for the Spiral Garden Museum is an unprecendented architectural masterpiece that will serve as a defining structure for the city of Taiwan. Designed by Paris-based studio Influx, the plans are a response to the design competition being held for the new Taipei City Museum. Its massive corkscrew style exterior is no match for the wild interior, which looks a bit like a box of crayons exploded.

The museum will be a draw for both adults and children with its visually stimulating design and the cultural content it houses. The continuous walkway will allow visitors to take in the vast surround landscapes while partaking in an enriching cultural experience. According to DesignBoom, Influx was "seeking to create an iconic structure that will define the current cultural identity of the city."

Implications - Museums are a major draw for tourists. Cities looking to expand the tourism industry do so by building cultural sites that are intriguing from the inside and architecturally unique and monumental from the outside.
