The new Taichung City Municipal Building is located in between Taiwan Boulevard and Wenxin Road. Along with the City Council Building nearby, the two buildings comprise the new Municipal Center.The building features transparent glass facade, a suspension structure in the middle of the architecture and a horizontal rectangular external appearance. The City Council Building, on the other hand, is a vertical rectangle. Open space and a park around the area balance and coordinate the different designs of the two buildings.Besides linking the two office buildings, the park space has become a common place for gathering. As visitors stand beneath the suspended auditorium, what comes to their eyes is a great scenery that involves the transparent council building, park and ponds.
