At Kuo Yang Tien Mu, which is located at an important urban junction in Taipei, Taiwan, we attempt to transform the building envelope that protects the residents’ private lives into a meaningful public city façade. The architecture is to initiate an intriguing dialogue with the disordered built environment through a unique yet contemporary gesture. The design wishes to break away from the typical mundane and repetitive urban residential housing, and express a vibrant city life specific to TaipeiCity instead.Save this picture!© Jeffrey ChengRecommended ProductsWindowsKalwall®Facades – Window ReplacementsWindowsOTTOSTUMM | MOGSWindow Systems – BronzoFinestra B40Enclosures / Double Skin FacadesRodecaRound Facade at Omnisport Arena ApeldoornWindowsLibartVertical Retracting Doors & WindowsIn response to the urban scale, a horizontal band in white crystallized glass panel clearly defines the residential and the commercial programs. The band then turns vertically to become an urban lighting wall that hopefully will redefine the boundary of Tien Mu area in both day and night. The elevation on the East side uses white cracked-ice glaze mosaic and black stone mosaic to form a modern representation of vertical village on an 80 meter long city wall. The building envelope with various protruding white frames becomes the in-between interface involves an individual with the city. The frames with depth not only provide the necessary sun screen, but the resulting visual artistry also evokes imagination. While the frames embrace and display urban life, they also keep private life away from environment with a proper yet ambiguous distance. On the West side, the service core is expressed by 6 vertical heavy walls with lanterns on top. They lit up at night to enrich the city skyline, and to provide guiding direction for the residents from Zhi Shan MRT station.

They were variously charged with aggravated assault and criminal damage to property.Young suffered suffered a fracture of his wrist and received 24 stitches for a large gash. Howard said Young was charged with eluding the police and released on a signature bond. Pilgram was not charged.“I feel a little safer that these monsters are off the street and no longer able to terrorize anyone else from this point on,” said Young at the press conference on Tuesday. “We just hope there is a change in the police culture.”After the video went viral on social media, Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms called for Young’s charges to get dismissed and fired officers Gardner and Streeter. The rest of the officers are on desk duty.Howard is giving the officers until June 5 to turn themselves in.“We will ask for a $10,000 signature bond as they are trying to limit the amount of people in jail as the coronavirus pandemic is still an issue in Georgia,” said Howard.
