Taiwan Tower 3- A Tower of Living Energy

Project Description

Taiwan is intense, industrious and fantastically dynamic.

The taiwan tower is there to celebrate this fact. As a constant inspiration to the people of taiwan, reminding them of their potential to create energy.

 

It demonstrates:

- What has been achieved

- What is being researched and developed

- What can be proposed in the search for energy techniques.

 

Such a tower must be  immediate, accessible, exciting and contain a range of ‘observables’ and attractions for differing strands of the public - as well as facilities for serious research and study. Overall it is not a simple totem but a constantly growing organism. It is a living laboratory of energy research. The park is inspired by the spirit and mannerism of the algae drops.
