The multi-theater Taipei Performing Arts Center in Taiwan consists of three theaters attached to a central cube that consolidates the stages, backstages and support spaces into a single, efficient whole. The exterior resembles a silver planet docking into a huge cube made of S-shaped, laminated curved glass in Vanceva’s Earth Tone, Shale Grey PVB that was fabricated by CRICURSA.

The annealed glass measures 5 meters in height with a 330 mm radius and 8 x 8, 10 x 10, and 12 x 12 laminated assemblies. The combination interlayer of clear PVB, XIR 72-47 solar control film and Shale Grey Vanceva PVB provides solar control performance and natural light ingress.

A neutral colorway emphasizes the dramatic architecture, and the curves of the laminated glass echo the vibrancy of performing arts through movement. As light passes through the glass curves, a dazzling, twinkling effect makes the cultural center’s exterior design a source of enjoyment for theatergoers and the general public.
