Project: Taipei Performing Arts Centre
Designed by Manfredi Nicoletti Architects
The project was designed for Taipei Performing Arts Centre Competition, offered by the Department of Cultural Affairs in Taiwan,Taipei has lacked an international standard performance space which would be a necessity in their efforts to establish Taipei as a capital of culture. The Manfredi Nicoletti project is titled the “Kite of Sound Roof”, this glass & steel lightly covered builiding was ment to symbolize a big sound vibration, a Kite of Sound, dragged by the wind. The project did not win the competition, instead OMA design was selected for the construction of the theater complex.
