New-York based firm ZERAFA ARCHITECTURE STUDIO have revealed their proposal for the design of the New Taipei City Museum of Art (NTCArt) in Taiwan.

The design aims to establish a new paradigm for celebrating art in Taipei, one that brings lifestyle, art, recreation and education together to celebrate a vibrant cultural identity for the community. The fusion of art with all aspects of daily experience is driven by ideas about the intrinsic relationship between art and life in Taiwan’s popular contemporary culture.

The new museum seeks to embody these ideas and provide an iconic venue for the spontaneous unfolding of contemporary life. Located in a park at the meeting of the Yingge and Dahan rivers, the site creates a dynamic juxtaposition between constructed nature (the park environment) and the density and urban scale of the surrounding hillside. The somewhat auspicious relative condition of these two contexts, both organic yet both man-made, provides the perfect setting for this museum.
