Central Park, Taichung
A landscape and architectural design for a new 70-hectare park in Taiwan, inclusive with leisure, sport and tourist activities. As part of the park, Swiss architect Philippe Rahm worked with scientists to build a series of environmental experiences, climates and temperatures that respond to the weather and air pollution of the tropical city of Taichung in Taiwan.
Located on the site of an old airport, the park has twelve sun-powered pavilions. Other spaces are constructed with specific trees and soil-surface treatments that enhance natural micro-climatic qualities to cool, dry and clean the air.
