Tadao Ando is the man behind the building of the Asia Museum of Modern Art in Taiwan. He used a triangular geometric structure for the piece, instead of simply going with a straightforward rectangular look.
The building was no easy feat to complete, considering it took over six years from start to finish. However, at least the resulting structure is impressive and distinct. The people in the community will also use the area for putting on events, and hold workshops as well as seminars. Overall it will be a space of learning for the individuals in this part of the country (and those who are looking to visit).
Tadao Ando demonstrates that with a little creative thinking, buildings do not have to take on the conventional form.

1. Geometric Architecture - Architects can innovate and draw inspirations from unconventional geometries, allowing them to create unique and creative structures.
2. Modular Design - Modular design can be implemented even for complicated structures and can significantly reduce the time needed for construction.
3. Community Involvement - By incorporating spaces for community events, workshops, and learning centers, architects can create structures that serve a dual purpose in both aesthetics and function.
1. Architecture - Architects can consider unconventional geometries for their building designs, allowing for more innovative and unique structures.
2. Construction - The use of modular design can significantly reduce the time needed for construction, streamlining the process and potentially increasing profitability.
3. Education - Building learning centers and community spaces within structures can create opportunities for community involvement and further education.
