Taiwan Tower Conceptual Design International Competition

The Concept: ‘Rising Dragon (Tenglong) dancing freely (Changwu) in the Auspicious Clouds (Ruiyun)’ is the main design concept of Taiwan Tower.     
This harmony is achieved by the master plan and a self-contained superstructure consisting of Taiwan Tower,  Museum of Taichung City Development, and Offices for the Department of Urban Development, Taichung City Government , and further enhanced by the aesthetic effect of the soaring Dragon (Tenglong) profile. 
It demonstrates the endeavors, progress and achievements of Taichung and the Taiwan people. A sea of floating auspicious clouds (Ruiyun) in the corner of a boundless sky embraces a soaring dragon, dancing freely, full of confidence, and as powerful as the majestic rainbow.  This  symbolizes the Taiwan people and Taiwan's beautiful present and bright future.
*Metaphors:
Long (Dragon) -— Auspicious Chinese cultural figures/ Chinese are descendants of the Dragon/ symbolizes endeavor, enterprising spirit
Teng -- rushed rise, soaring, metaphor for the rapid development of
Changwu (dance freely) — the happy present, future
Ruiyun –- lucky clouds, a metaphor for wealth, harvest
