Ming & Mei
A Cultural Embrace
Ming & Mei is a proposal for a major new cultural center in Taichung, Taiwan, made up of an art museum and a library. Rather than force the two institutions together, the design houses them in two interwoven masses that celebrate the void in between as a grand entrance into the new Gateway Park. In turn, their embrace establishes a new cultural heart for the city. Interlacing terraces create a cascade of galleries, bars, and outdoor spaces for visitors as they enter the parkscape.
