We’re totally intrigued by this pop music center for Taipei [1] and its striking resemblance to a rolling green hill. Conceived by Italian firm Mario Bellini Architects [2], the design is “a single body wrapped in a plastic ‘mantle plant’,” according to our friends at Designboom [3]. While we aren’t sure how sustainable this plastic ‘mantle plant’ is, or even what it is for that matter, we were taken with the creative landscaping [4] and creation of an exciting outdoor public area for the people of the Taipei. The proposed structure would also have glass passageways, letting visitors look out onto the city. If anyone has any more information about the eco-features of this center, we’d love to hear them – so share your thoughts in the comments below.
