RUR Architecture’s Taipei Music Center Performance Hall prepares to open

The Taipei Music Center Performance Hall, designed by RUR Architecture (formerly known as Reiser + Umemoto), is preparing to open next week on September 5. The 756,000-square-foot event space is the first of three parts of a master plan for the Taipei Music Center that RUR designed in the Taiwanese capital. The performance hall houses a 6,000-seat auditorium in a faceted anodized aluminum skin.

The hall is separated from the other two portions of the complex, the Exhibition Hall and the Creative Area Building, by a major road, but a new pedestrian bridge will connect the buildings. The Exhibition Hall and the Creative Area Building are scheduled to open in mid-2021.

The buildings have been in the works for a decade. More information about the performance hall’s design and construction is available here, when AN profiled the under-construction behemoth at the end of 2018.
