A shortlist of five firms or partnerships competing to design the new Taichung City Cultural Center has been released. The five top designs will now be reviewed and a winner announced in late August.

The overall design objectives in the brief included: Local Identity; Cultural Landmark; Ecological Benchmark; Flexible Space; and a Social and Recreational Learning Environment.

SANAA / Kazuyo Sejima (Japan)
