Taiwan Tower Conceptual Design International Competition

The Invitation

To commemorate the centennial anniversary of the founding of Taiwan, R.O.C. and celebrate the merger between Taichung County and Taichung City, the government of Taiwan, R.O.C. will erect “Taiwan Tower” as an important landmark in the new special municipality. Here, visitors will be treated to a panorama view of the park, the city and the natural surroundings. The new landmark will also help visitors and residents orient themselves as Taichung makes the leap to become a world-class metropolis.

Taiwan Tower is to be located at the southern tip of Central Park, which is part of the former Taichung (Shuinan) Airport site, Taichung city. It will become a vista at the southern end of a major boulevard. Measuring approximately one hectare, the site is situated across from the Economic and Trade Park to the north. The project will comprise of Taiwan Tower and the Museum of Taichung City Development.

Though not aiming to compete in height with other towers of the world, in principle the observatory of Taiwan Tower should provide visitors with a view of the Taiwan Strait. The height is planned to be at least 300 meters. In addition, the site context and local architectural character should be integrated with 21st-Century building technology to symbolize the new Taiwan spirit. Taiwan Tower should also answer its call for environment responsibility and adopt the use of alternative energy. In implementing the government’s policies in energy conservation and carbon reduction, Taiwan Tower will act as a model of green building for the 21st century.

Thus, an international competition will be held to seek a forward-looking and innovative design and enliven the project with a fresh look and multifunctional use. Outstanding design teams from home and abroad are cordially invited to contribute pioneering planning and design ideas. Spread your creative wings and let the dream of a new-age landmark for Taichung take off!

Awards:
One First Prize: NT$ 4,000,000(Approximately US$ 130,000)
One Second Prize: NT$ 2,000,000(Approximately US$ 65,000)

Five Honorable Mentions: NT$ 100,000(Approximately US$ 3,200) for each

The competition has lauched, hope they can come out some world-class tower for Taiwan. Currently, we don't have rendering of course. I am not sure it will be good to set up this thead so early, but I will update the rendering when the winner come out.

And is this title correct?

this would be the first skyscraper at all in taichung, since there is no other 200m building, and it will be a supertall. Taiwan seems to like the one supertall skyline

About three years ago, Taiwan Tower has been showed in Master Plan of Taichung Airport Redevelopment by Dragonpolis Engineering Consulting Co. and Ltd and Stan Allen Architect. In that time, it is called Taichung Tower.

Now Taichung City government lauches a new international competition for the same tower, so I think the tower in this master plan is more likely to be a conceptual plan.

Wow, stunning! Weird projects are normally ugly, but this one looks incredible. It's very innovative imo, and will look great once built.
