Taichung City Cultural Center Competition, Taiwan



The Machine in The Garden: The vision for the development of Taichung is "Cosmopolitan Taichung"—a city with strong cultural, economic and international characteristics. To distinguish herself from Taipei and Kaohsiung, the third biggest city in Taiwan has placed arts and culture at the core of her urban identity. "Culture", also a key contributor to the city's economy and international presence, has been identified as the most important trait of Taichung.
