Zaha Hadid lands £106m Taiwan gallery project

The Guggenheim Foundation has commissioned Zaha Hadid Architects to design a £106 million gallery complex in the Taiwanese city of Taichung (above).

The building is part of a new civic development which also includes a town hall, the city assembly and the national opera. The focus of the gallery is a large lobby space which can be approached from two directions, creating a public path through the building and dividing it into east and west wings.

Plans for a US$250 million Guggenheim in Rio de Janeiro designed by Jean Nouvel are on hold following a public outcry about its expense.
