Maxthreads Architectural Design & Planning proposal for the Taichung City Cultural Centre competition looks like a series of differently sized baskets. An unconventional gathering space for visitors and locals alike, it is a sculptural structure that many would be proud of. Since it defines the northern arrival gateway to Taichung Gateway Park, it is only natural that the architects would want to make a visual impact.

Inspired by the beautiful mountain-scape of Taroko Gorge National Park in Taiwan, the Taichung City Cultural Centre brings a bit of the outdoors inside as well, especially when it comes to natural light. Comprised of the Library and Fine Arts Museum, it includes the integration of culture, education, tourism, environmental conservation and sustainability.
