Fab III, Macronix International Co.
In addition to fulfilling the functional requirements, the challenge of this wafer production plant was to create a building both unique yet complementary to the existing Headquarter Building and Staff Recreation/Training Center, both designed by our office.
To accomplish this, we employed a gradually receding, curved building form recalling the rhythm of the Headquarter Building, and avoiding the pressure that a typically massive Fab would exert on surrounding roads. The Production and General Utilities Plants were designed according to strict functional requirements; auxiliary factory buildings are also curved. Exterior finish generally matches the Headquarters Building, with aluminum and glass curtain wall resting on a granite base, except a green glass with white enameled dots was used on the interior face of the curved walls to both reduce reflective glazing glare and create a special visual quality.
