This unique structure from Aedas in Taiwan draws inspiration from river pebbles 

Designed by Andy Wen, Global Design Principal of Aedas, Lè Architecture in the Nangang district of Taipei in Taiwan is set to redefine Taipei’s rapidly developing skyline. The design for Lè Architecture drew inspiration from the shape of river pebbles, developing a unique aesthetic concept that conveys the idea of roundness and elegance, as well as strength and character. 

The building's egg-like shape implies it is an incubator of knowledge and a metaphor of intellectual revival, which integrates well with the local context and marks an important milestone in the revitalisation of the fast-emerging Nangang district. The 60-metre tall office building employs multiple strategies to add greenery to the façade and is focused on minimising energy demands which helped it achieve a LEED gold certification.
