The New Taipei City Art Museum is located in an area between the two old towns of Yingge and Sanshia. To the north of the site is Guilun Mountain, to the south the Da Han River and Xue Shan mountain range. In this site rich in historical/cultural features as well as grand geographical settings, the competition winning design intends to create “an Art Museum among the Reeds”. With its modern and avant-garde outlook, the building aims to blend in with the local landscape and cultural imagery with an architectural vision for sustainability.

The City intends to introduce a more open and accessible museum for the public. In response to this policy, the base level of the building will be a network of open art streets and a series of free outdoor sculpture terraces, taking a form reminiscent of the image of the near-by Da Han River dried-cracked riverbed. By following the slope of the base, visitors can enjoy the art works in the sculpture garden or linger around the art street filled with workshops, cafes and restaurants. The main building mass is elevated over the site by a long-span structural system to provide the most flexible exhibition space and allow the visitors with magnificent views of the surrounding river and mountains.

The uniquely designed façade is composed of numerous structural and non-structural vertical tubes of different heights. This vertically linear elevation echoes with the blurry beauty of reeds calmly swaying in the wind, presenting an unpredictable and ever-changing expression of the visual illusions.
