Tron-Inspired Port Terminal (6 pics)

Designed by Asymptote Architecture and Artech Architects, the Kaohsiung Marine Gateway Terminal is a new state of the art transportation interchange that features exhibition and event spaces. The project brings a powerful and electric experience to the city 24 hours a day. The architects were awarded second place for the proposal.Key components of Asymptote's design are two elegant towers, a sculptural terminal hall that is framed and hovers in an elevated position between them, and a platform that connects the towers below and accommodates a new public urban space. The port terminal is designed to invigorate the city's waterfront and connects this new urban space with the creation of the future Pop Music Center and other public recreational and commercial activities that are to be located along the planned park.
