Inotera Headquarters Taipei, Taiwan
In the case of the Inotera Headquarters in Taipei this is achieved by infusing hi-tech requirements with emotional content. The all glass façade, typical for standard office buildings, is reinterpreted in light of Taiwan’s tradition of tile construction. Technology is thus explored in order to emulate cultural values and environmental aspects within a contemporary context.
Inotera Headquarters in Taipei combined with a fabrication facility aims at creating a sense of identifi cation, persona, and location for a new joint venture between a European and an Asian company. The structure’s working title “the culture lab” emphasizes its role in making the most of cultural differences while evoking the ambience of a social laboratory.
