TAICHUNG INFOBOX
Taichung, Taiwan • Exhibition Pavilion • Completed 2011

The Taichung Infobox has been constructed inside a large hangar on the site of the proposed Gateway Park. By re-cycling an existing building we foreground the history of the airport site while at the same time looking forward to a new future. The InfoBox re-purposes traditional bamboo scaffolding techniques. The structure is not only quick and inexpensive, it is a locally available green technology; all materials will be recycled at the end of the pavilion’s lifespan.
