Tzu Chi Foundation
This project is about building atmosphere. With this humanist approach, the focus is moved from the building to the people, from the object to the subject, changing the viewpoint from designing architectural object to designing atmosphere.
The timeless design of the proposed new Tzu Chi Foundation is born from the gesture of embracing this space and creating a ‘void’. This gesture takes the shape of two building masses coming together enveloping a central conical void at the heart of the building.
Alberni’s elegant and distinctive design is inspired by the stunning beauty of flowing forms and ever-changing spaces, reminiscent of rivers and canyons sculpted by nature.
A continuous architectural spine ascends the middle of each of the building’s façades in a weave or ‘exoskeleton’ that takes its cues from structures found in nature; simple and graceful elements which, when repeated and woven together, reveal a complex system that is functional, alluring, and dynamic.
