Lonely Giant of the Taipei Skyline Is About to Get Some Company
Thirteen years after Taipei 101 became the tallest building in the Taiwanese capital (and, for a time, tallest in the world), it is being joined by other skyscrapers, raising the skyline of an otherwise surprisingly low-rise city.
News Link please refer to:
The first of the new buildings, …Nan Shan Plaza, is scheduled for completion at the end of this year.
If all goes well, the next addition to the Xinyi skyline will be the …Taipei Sky Tower…, and the Fubon Group Xinyi Headquarters….
The Fubon Group Xinyi Headquarters design is a collaboration by the Renzo Piano Building Workshop — the firm behind The New York Times Building and the Whitney Museum in New York, and the Shard in London — and the Taiwanese architect Kris Yao's firm, Kris Yao Artech, which designed the Southern Branch of Taiwan's National Palace Museum.
