The new Taichung Cultural Center, TCC, located within the Taichung Gateway District will house two regional agencies the public library and fine arts museum within one single institution. Our proposal arranges the new cultural center around a public space open towards the city of Taichung and Gateway Park. The building is conceived as a single loop of public space and cultural institutions twisting into a continuous organization that combines the virtues of both institutions, maximizing interdisciplinary exchange while preserving the autonomy.
