Taipei Mega Architecture


I live pretty much slap bang downtown in Taipei, and I am forever amazed at the scale of my local motorway at the end of the street. The thing is, they posted it up on stilts, so it really does the double trick of magically disappearing and providing an incredible space right in the centre of the city. It also seems to be lit professionally, although I suspect that was more by accident than design.

Anyway, on my way back from my semi-regular trips to the computer market, I thought I would take a few photos.

Painting on the ceiling with light.

Cathedral of the Automobile

Juicy couture. And home.

Oh how I miss those giant steel structures! In HK they opted for smaller concrete versions between and sometimes through houses. The really big ones are usually away from pedestrian areas - Taipei is quite special in that regard.
