What's 141,000m2, constructed by ship builders, and sits in the centre of a former military base in Kaohsiung? It's Mecanoo's largest project, currently under construction in Taiwan!

The Wei-Wu-Ying Centre for the Arts symbolizes the transformation of Kaohsiung, once a major international harbour, into a modern, diverse city with a rich cultural climate. Mecanoo designed Wei-Wu-Ying, located on a former military terrain, as an integral part of the adjacent subtropical park to have a positive social impact on the residents of Kaohsiung whose population counts almost 3 million. 

Check out this 17 minute documentary on what will be the country's biggest centre of performing arts.
