KAOHSIUNG MARITIME CULTURE AND POPULAR MUSIC CENTER
790,000 sq.ft. program includes concert halls, exhibition spaces, a music incubator, interior and exterior public spaces, and administrative areas. The site encompasses an urban waterfront in Kaohsiung, Taiwan. International competition, 2010.
The twin poles of individual and collective life are everywhere present in pop music. From headphones to concerts, from musicians to the music industry, from downloaded songs to global distribution, pop music produces an endlessly changing dynamic across micro and macro scales. Its reverberations move nimbly among performers, audiences, and economies.
Circular Logic cultivates the agility of these cultural dynamics. The circular buildings that form program and public space slip into, out of, over, and under one another.
