Site : Kaohsiung, Taiwan POR
Status : Competition
Function : Ferry Terminal
Year : 2010
Area : 55,000sqm


This is a scheme for the international ferry terminal competition in the city of Kaohsiung R.O.C. . Our aim is to build friendly architecture for the civics yet symbolic as a gate of Asian region. The building is lifted up in the center not to interrupt the vista towards the sea on the ground level. Therefore circular shape of the terminal enhances the circulation inside by avoiding cul-de-sac like spaces. This terminal provides the urban space on the ground, wrapping Taiwanese external activities throughout day and night.
