Activity Center, Xiafu, Taiwan

Atelier Boronski working with Urdaneta Zeberio and Lian Satrustegui of IMO Design were awarded 1st Prize in the national design competition for this government project.

It comprises 1,085 sq m of Performance, Rehearsal, Storage and Meeting areas for local performers with offices, catering and other ancillary spaces.  

Taking the neighboring shrine (previously doubling as the Activity center) as a point of departure we selected local elements to re-configure or (miss-read) and develop the form and vocabulary of the new facility. There are clear relationships between the two but it is a playful conversation…

Raw fluted pre-cast concrete wall panels and vibrantly painted steel pipes hold up a thin fluttering roof element.

This project has received the International Golden Pin Award and the FIABCI Taiwan Real Estate Excellence Award.
