OMA’s project was the winner in the international competition held in 2009, where teams like Morphosis, Ábalos + Sentkiewicz – whose design received the third prize –, MVRDV and Zaha Hadid participated. The office of Rem Koolhaas launched the construction of the Taipei Performing Arts Center in 2012, with a design that proposes a typological revision of conventional auditoriums. Now nearing completion, the TPAC consists of three theaters that function autonomously but plug into a central cube. This arrangement allows the stages to be modified or merged into a variety of configurations, generating a space that offers greater flexibility than the conventional performance center type.
