Taichung Gateway Park

Philippe Rahm as Architects

On February 10, 2012, the host organization had awarded the contract of the procurement project of “Taichung Gateway Park Planning, Design and Construction Supervision Service Project” (Project number: 100033100223) to Catherine Mosbach. The service fee is calculated based on the fixed percentage of total construction cost. The service fee for this project is 10% of the total construction cost and no price reduction negotiation will be conducted.


TAIPEI (AFP) - French architects Ms Catherine Mosbach and Mr Philippe Rahm have won an international contest to design a US$90 million (S$114 million) urban park in central Taiwan, officials on the island said Wednesday. The duo, in collaboration with Taiwanese architect Mr Ricky Liu, were picked for an 'original and forward-looking' design integrating the concept of climate change into the 68ha park, said the Taichung city government. They aim to monitor temperature, humidity, and pollution through computer simulations in order to 'micro-adjust' the climate and create a 'smart ecology park', it said in a statement. The vast park will also include a cultural centre, a tower and a cinema, as well as tennis, basketball and baseball courts, it said.
