OMA’s Taiwan Theater Reaches Construction Milestone

28 August, 2014

-By Erinn Waldo


The Taipei Performing Arts Center, designed by OMA Architecture, has topped out this week in the Taiwanese capital.



First revealed by the firm in 2009, the design is comprised of the 1,500-seat Grand Theater, an 800-seat Multiform Theater, and an 800-seat Proscenium Playhouse. Centered around a transparent central cube, each theater can function independently while sharing backstage space and mechanical facilities. The Grand Theater and the Multiform Theater can also be combined into a Super Theater with a long space for experimental theatrical possibilities.

                   

Running through TPAC is a public circulation path that glimpses performances and backstage workings. The central cube of TPAC, lifted from the ground, liberates the space at ground level to create a plaza for public activities.

                 

Façade construction of TPAC will begin in this October. The building envelope consists of two primary materials: corrugated glass wrapping the central cube, and large aluminum panels cladding the three theaters. TPAC main construction is scheduled for completion in 2015.
