International Design Competition – First Prize:

In May 2011 the Governor of New Taipei City, Taiwan, invited design proposals for a 50,000m2 multi-purpose Art Museum for his city. Apart from storage, maintenance and display spaces for a wide variety of artworks, additional requirements included a library, lecture hall, art classrooms, restaurants and retail spaces. There was also a significant requirement for energy efficient strategies to be incorporated. And of course the building had to have broad public appeal – bringing art and lifestyle together through recreation, education, exhibition and tourism. This was a two stage competition, and in the first stage there were 294 entries from 61 countries. In August three finalists were selected, Kengo Kuma & Associates from Japan, Frederico Soriano Pelaez from Spain and atelier BORONSKI + Jean-Loup Baldacci. In the second stage we were invited to develop our proposals further and then go to Taiwan in October to present to a panel of seven international judges (from Taiwan, Holland, Japan and England).

First prize:  atelier Boronski + Jean-Loup Baldacci.

Second prize:  Kengo Kuma and Associates.

Third prize:  Frederico Soriano Pelaez

During the first half of 2011 atelier BORONSKI were invited to work with Real Architecture on a multi-unit residential development in Ho Chi Minh city, Viet Nam. 125 high quality Town Houses were designed within a beautifully landscaped site on the edge of the city. Clubrooms and swimming pools were also part of the complex.
