Our design concept is a brilliant diamond in the heart of downtown Taipei; these three towers rise as the jewels of the city. The proportions are carefully considered, utilizing the perfect golden ratio. This concept of brilliant diamonds, “The Jewel of Taipei,” is expressed through the four corners of each tower that rise upwards, connecting to the top crown that reaches to the sky. The building creates a very distinct skyline, this concept is continued in the podium by having ultimate folds of the shinny white granite panels and the media screen. Also, this folding image of the podium, is an expression of the scale of the nearby buildings, and breaks what would otherwise be a monopolous long facade. Its crystallized facade, with a diamond shaped rooftop is elegantly lit at night, would become an unparalleled glamourous landmark.
