NTC-National Trade Center is a 165-metre tall office building located in the emerging CBD of Taichung. Its innovative interpretation of the urban setback rules allows natural integration into the urban fabric, meanwhile responding to local culture. The iconic building replicates the silhouette of a bamboo shoot – a plant commonly found in Taichung, which symbolizes prosperity in Chinese culture. The unique form of the building has not only offered a cultural identity to the project itself but also set the tone of this new district with its landmark feature.
