visiondivision: tower town

6 Sep


stockholm-based architecture practice visiondivision has submitted ‘tower town’ a proposal for the
taiwan tower international competition for taichung city, taiwan. a cluster of over one hundred slender spires,
this building is the antithesis of currently repeated singular tall structure of varied shapes and cladding.
this design provides unique experiences for employees and visitors of the site, reinstating architecture
as an opportunity for spatial exploration.


the gesture of dividing the towers creates open air internal streets between the numerous towers generating
a highly interactive interior. narrow passageways create an intimate city feel while encouraging upward views
of the elevated catwalks systematically spanning gaps between peaks. the pedestrian bridges impart additional
lateral support for the structure while simultaneously contributing a plethora of observation points to view the city
and surrounding landscape from varied heights and perspectives.
