Elegant design of the Taiwanese Tower, designed by Decode Urbanism Office is derived from natural parameters of the wind combined with the characteristics of the base. Designed as landmark architecture, the tower stands out due to its uniqueness and progressive approach. The façade of the high-rise is innovative – composed of multiple wind-driven generators supported by the structure. When the generator rotates, the façade changes along and the amount of produced energy is sufficient for the whole tower.
The tower is a showcase acting as a proof that tells the natural password – wind energy can actually supply energy for the entire building. The diamond-type wind generator is fixed in the middle of a façade grid, with a net structure. The overall appearance of the façade is shown when the weather lane is parallel with vertical face. The shade of weather vane and structure makes shadow in the space of tower building, therefore controlling the entrance of light and reducing the consumption of energy. In case when the wind blows the veil of the tower, the weather vane is vertical to the façade and the structure becomes transparent.
The facade of the tower is dynamic and it renders differently from situation to situation, therefore the Taiwanese people feel it is given with life. At night, due to LED lamp positioned between wind generators is powered by wind and lights with thousand lights. The light color is changing according to the temperature of season. From all the above, it becomes clear that Taiwanese Tower is an elegant decoder of nature.
