The Taiwan Tower is a sustainable icon displaying cutting edge technologies and innovations. The “zero carbon” tower is a large vertical absorber that functions as a self-sufficient system. Combined with the museum it is a visionary ecological building ensemble. Furthermore the tower turns invisible energy processes into a spatial experience and becomes an architectural statement: the need of reduction of energy consumption leads to architectural and spatial innovation. 100% of energy supply is covered by renewable energy generation on site.
Piezo electric halms produce electricity by moving and bending active lamella are showing recent bionic development.
