Hualien is a rapidly developing city located in the middle portion of
Taiwans East coast.

TLDC, a prominent land developer based in Taipei, has recently obtained
license to turn what used to be an industrial and factory region into a
world class beach resort.

The site is located prominently along the coast and near the intersection
of two river deltas.

Taiwans spine of mountains can be seen to the west while the coast is to
the east; Hualien city is to the north.

For the masterplan, a language of green landscape stripes is used to
create a mountain landscape of commercial and residential program that
reflect their natural counterparts in the background.

The stripes run east-west to frame the best views while also becoming
an optimal shading system for Taiwans hot and humid tropical climate.

High glare, low angle morning and evening sun is effortlessly blocked by
the stripes while favorable north-south light is allowed into the units.

Green roofs further mitigate heat gain and combined with the striping
create a low energy masterplan. Source by Bjarke Ingels Group.
