The NTU Cosmology Hall located in Taipei, Taiwan, designed by the architect Kris Yao and build 2018.

Walking around Taipei in Taiwan you will come across a futuristic looking building with the depths of the vertical sunshades varying in a progressive sequence, to create an illusion of a sphere inside the cube that can be seen outside as one moves around the building. The architect wanted to create a building that would seek harmony with the surrounding environment while visually give an experience of a dynamic and changing façade.

A design that primarily consists of concrete and metal is not great for indoor acoustics. fade® acoustic ceilings was involved early in the design process and provided guidance and technical proposals. The result is around 1000 m2 fade® acoustic plaster. As the architect wanted the ceiling to be “heard but not seen” they opted for our ultra smooth fade® Acoustic – Plus+ acoustic plaster.
