T-A-I-W-A-N BIG TEK architect





TEK', which stands for 'technology, entertainment and knowledge center taipei', takes full advantage
of its site by coiling together the public street within its volume. leading the public from the street level
to the roof garden, the ascending spiral serves as the anchor to a number of programs, including shops,
showrooms, offices, conference rooms, exhibition spaces, restaurants and galleries. the layout is organized
to best provide for each facility: daylight sensitive programs such as hotel rooms and offices resides
on the perimeter, while retail and exhibition spaces occupy the core.

the entire volume is finished in concrete lamellas, a system of stacked plate-like pieces
that provide solar shading as well as aid in public access. featuring moments of wide recession,
the facade becomes a generous public staircase while on the roof level, the inward form
accommodates an arena-like space for informal social gatherings.
