Project Description

Shigeru Ban Architects has won the commission for the Museum of Fine Arts in Tainan, Taiwan. The city’s government held the design competition to build a museum that would celebrate Tainan’s fine arts culture with platforms for both local and international exhibitions as well as arts education and research. Led by 2014 Pritzker Prize winner Shigeru Ban, Shigeru Ban Architects proposed a large, permeable roof over several levels of stacked galleries, loosely interpreting the shape of Tainan into a pentagonal pyramid roof supported by large diagonal structural columns.
