is the very ordinary sounding name for the extraordinary giant cube designed by Bjarke Ingels Group
in Taiwan. It will be a public space 43,000 square meters in size - or, more specifically, 57 meters cubed. The design
uses a coil within a cube to create the public street that spirals from the ground floor to the rooftop garden. Ted will incorporate a host of uses, including shops, showrooms, offices, conference rooms, exhibition spaces, galleries, hotel rooms and restaurants. The cube will be finished in concrete lamellas that will serve as both solar shading and public access, receding inwards to form the winding staircase.
