Description

Taiwan is densely populated along the island’s perimeter and largely covered with steep, rugged mountain ranges spanning from north to south. Strong ties exist between the authorities, academics, developers, building professions, and citizens, and despite its volatile political and challenging economic situations, the administering of public works and commissioning of various commercial projects has maintained its creativity and rationality. Through first-hand experience the magazine explores more than 20 projects borne out of the unique conditions on Taiwan, among them works by Mecanoo, Jun Aoki, Jay Chiu, OMA, Casagrande Laboratory, Fieldoffice Architects, and others.
