• Mirror-clad Taichung Tower produces green energy and uses the winds for natural ventilation

  • Proposition for Taiwan Tower by Nicolas Laisne Architect from Nicolas Laisne on Vimeo.

    Here’s on building façade that’ll stare right back at you if you look at it. Why? Simply because it’s covered with mirrors! Well, besides just showing you a reflection of yourself, the Taichung Tower by Nicolas Laisne, awarded honorable mention in the international Taiwan Tower Conceptual Design Competition, generates some green energy too! The mirrors, or panels, also naturally cool the interior using direct winds, helping the towering structure reduce its carbon footprint by quite an appreciable extent. With enough space for offices, a museum, a restaurant, an observatory and suspended gardens that offer breath-taking views, this beautiful building is the future of green architecture, showing architects and designers just how its done right, the environment-friendly way.

    We’d sure love to see this one spring up soon! The Taichung Tower will indeed be a pride Taiwan can boast about.
