ArchitypeReview published HMC’s Kaohsiung Port and Cruise Service Center. HMC was one of five finalists for the Kaohsiung Port and Cruise Service Center International Competition in 2010. The proposal envisions an iconic gateway to the City of Kaohsiung, and a lens into the outer-world visualized from within. It creates a new urban datum—an inviting gesture—to allow a new connection between visitors, citizens, and the City of Kaohsiung. This gateway is designed to serve as a physical and economical impetus to the City’s goal of transforming its waterfront from its industrial past into an inviting future.

The First People’s Hospital in Shunde is making a splash with design professionals internationally, especially in China. In addition to the hospital being designated as an official pilot project for green hospitals in China, Professor Chen of Xi’an Jiaotong University is publishing a first major book in China on international green hospital buildings that features the project. Three weeks ago, Xi’an Jiaotong-Liverpool University invited me to give a lecture to the students at the Department of Architecture and Urban Planning and Design. The faculty and students were particularly interested in the First People’s Hospital and other recent international design competitions that HMC entered and were selected as finalists. The lecture was very well received and attended by more than 150 students and faculty.

In June, I traveled to China to visit the construction site of the First People’s Hospital. Nearly three years ago, HMC teamed with China-based Shunde Architectural Design Institute to compete and win the Chinese government’s design competition for the First People’s Hospital. When complete, the hospital will total 2.8 million SF on 33 acres, house 2,000 hospital beds, serve 6,000 outpatient visits per day, and accommodate 2,000 parking spaces. While the construction for the shell and core of the structure is moving forward at full speed, our design team continues to work with the local architect and client to provide design oversight during the construction phase.

Led by HMC’s Raymond Pan, the team of HMC Architects and HOY Architects and Associates were among the five finalists selected for the Taiwan Tower International Design Competition. Envisioned as beacon for the city of Taichung, the 400-meter tall green tower is an evolving column of life that captures and reflects the strength and resilience of the people of Taiwan.
Rising from its roots that are infused with its people, place, history, and stories, this column of life is the culmination of the serendipitous lifestyle and inclusive multicultural dynamism of Taiwan. The tower sustains a creative synergy between structure and its context through a physical, visual, and metaphysical morphology. The very roots that shaped this tower are ingrained in the memories of Taiwan’s history, while it continues to foster the celebration of life and its ever-changing aspect of history making.

Fifteen people participated in the one-hour design slam, inspired by a design competition that National Geographic is currently sponsoring.
