those two square towers dont look like they belong there. they need to blend the shapes more to match the dome and side structure which are more organically shaped.

Looks like a spaceship ready to blast off...

The sky garden co-joined to the dome looks like inspired by Singapore's fusionopolis campus...but is it suitable during typhoon season?


And the dome looks similar to the Singapore durian minus its "thorns"...

Major Planning Characteristics
Farglory Dome’s BOT project investment is estimated to be above NT$27 billion.

The overall plan for the Dome Sport Complex is:
1. Multipurpose indoor stadium with a capacity of 40,000, providing a venue for large ball games, gatherings, performances and exhibitions.
2. The affiliated shopping mall facility, hotel and office building will be integrated to form an international, themed, sports, cultural and educational multipurpose park.


Top design and construction teams:

The sport park will be integrated by Farglory


Recreational Activity Square for the Public:

The complex is comprised of: Green square, lifestyle square, art and cultural square, vitality squares and others, with a total area of over 6,000 ping. Large quantities of trees are preserved or re-planted according to the characteristics of space, the diverse tree species and layering form abundant plant ecology in the complex. Furthermore, the large venue of the Dome is integrated with the outdoor square to provide domestic and foreign event organizers, institutions, schools, museums or art and cultural organizations a great opportunity to revitalize the Dome Complex, so that the Taipei Dome is always immersed in a healthy, joyous, artistic, cultural, creative and LOHAS atmosphere.

(1) Dome Designer:HOK S+V+E, this is the world’s biggest sports stadium designing company, which has accumulated more than 1.8 million seats throughout its designing experience
(2) Construction:Obayashi Corporation (Japan), one of the five largest world-class construction companies in Japan.
(3) Commercial Designer:Dennis Lau & Ng Chun Man Architects & Engineers (Hong Kong), the largest architect firm in Hong Kong. Japanese design team ITL led by Shuwa Tei is in charge of the overall concept.
(4) Landscaping:ACLA of Hong Kong is in charge of landscaping
(5) Affiliated Business:SANG of the USA is in charge of hotel design, while hotel interior design is commissioned to renowned international designer of Burj Al Arab, KCA. English designer BENOY is in charge of shopping mall interior design.
(6) Domestic architect team: Assisted by Archasia Design Group (Taiwan).
The above professional design and operation teams are enlisted to create the best metropolitan Dome Complex.

I'm surprised to see the name of a HK architectural practice is among the design team. Dennis Lau & Ng CHun Man is one of the largest in HK but their designs were neither creative nor exciting IMHO.


Internalization of Transportation:  

In terms of public transportation to the complex and the existing MRT Bannan Line, the MRT North-South Line has been planned. In the future, the MRT station will be linked to the Dome, facilitating the entering and exiting of people in the Dome complex, the surrounding transportation plan is based on:
(1)Road improvement
(2)Addition of the Zhongxiao E. Rd. and Guangfu S. Rd. temporary stopping lane.
(3)Underground vehicle traffic.
(4)Establishing shuttle buses.
(5)Linking to the 80m underground passageway under the Dr. Sun Yat Sen Memorial Hall.
  Effectively alleviating traffic by separating the pedestrian trafficand vehicle traffic through "Internalization of Transportation"


Taipei Dome planning details:

1. Planning concept: 40,000 indoor closed type seats, 30,000 infield seats and 10,000 outfield seats, height 65m, main field is located in B2, sound absorbing materials installed inside and solar panels outside.

2. Function: The purposes of the stadium are:
(1)International sports competitions: Apart from baseball, it can be used for sports such as soccer, softball etc.
(2)International entertainment, art and cultural performance: Combined with movable seats, the maximum capacity is 50,000 seats.
(3)International exhibitions: Similar to the World Trade Exhibition Hall.
(4)Large international gatherings: Religious gatherings, international conferences, election gatherings etc.
(5)Taiwan Baseball Museum: Museum exhibiting the history of the national sport of Taiwan.
(6)Enhance the international visibility of Taiwan.


Affiliated businesses:
1. A-class multifunctional office building
2. Hotel
3. Shopping mall
4. Cultural entertainment square

I don't seen much resemblence of the dome to Singapore's durian, but the white skin of the glass building give me an impression of Vivo City in Singapore.

I believe this design will not be passed by government if they do not reduce floor area enough, because the previous design has problem with its capacity. Farglor group planning a 590,000 square metres project in their previous planning. It is unacceptable becuase statutory flloor area is 310,000 square metres, it is written in the tender document. It is silly, they try to over build the whole project.

The height limit due to Songshan Airport has been lifted in the area? In the past, it's been metioned that the height of the dome had to be partially underground, and now they have planned two tall towers.


The towers in the rendering don't look like their final design? just vision?

The issue is Farglory Group breached the limited building capacity which set up by government in its previous design. It caused community organisation and environmental organisation make protect against it because it is overdevelopment with government regulation. Government asked Farglory Group redesign this porject, this is why the project take so long time for design and haven't commence construction.

It doesn't make any sense, the building capacity was being overplan in that time. You put solar panel cover on it, it doesn't change anything.

Design of dome gets green light

NEXT STAGE:A traffic control report for the construction project must still be submitted by the Farglory Group, the developer of the ‘Big Egg’

A schematic design shows the planned Taipei Dome and Culture Sports Park. The build-operate-transfer development plan for the Culture Sports Park was revealed yesterday amid much fanfare and protest.
PHOTO COURTESY OF THE TAIPEI CITY GOVERNMENT DEPARTMENT OF URBANThe long-stalled construction project for the Taipei Dome yesterday passed Taipei City’s urban design review amid protests over the project’s possible impact on local traffic and overall environment.

The proposed site of the complex, which includes a 40,000-seat indoor stadium with surrounding shopping and residential districts, is located at the corner of Zhongxiao E and Guangfu S roads. Construction is scheduled to start in July if it passes the environmental impact assessment early next year.

The Urban Design Review Committee’s decision to approve the project was met with strong protests from a group of environmentalists and local residents who rushed into the closed-door meeting and clashed with police.

“Several hundred old trees at the historic Songshan Tobacco Factory were removed because of the project and local residents have lost a place to exercise and relax,” said Yu Yi (游藝), a member of a civic group that calls for the preservation of the factory site. “The city government is profiting enterprises by approving the project.”

Calls by protesters on the city government to reject the project and annul the build-operate-transfer contract with the Farglory Group failed to prevent the review committee from approving the project, which was originally scheduled for completion this year.

Farglory chairman Chao Teng-hsiung (趙藤雄), who attended the committee meeting, rejected the protesters’ claim that the building would have a negative impact on the environment, adding that the complex would not pose a serious threat to the environment as it has gone through “the strictest reviews.”

Ting Yu-chun (丁育群), commissioner of the city’s Urban -Development Department and review committee chairman, said that even if the project were approved, the Farglory Group would still be required to submit a report on traffic control measures.

The group signed the contract with the city government in 2006 and plans to invest more than NT$23 billion (US$700 million) in the complex.

Since then, ongoing protests from environmentalists and local residents have stalled the review process and the group subsequently agreed to reduce the size of the complex from 590,000m2 to 555,000m2.

Taipei Mayor Hau Lung-bin (郝龍斌) said yesterday the project had followed all necessary administrative processes over the years and that the city’s review committee had approved it through a fair and transparent mechanism.
