Taichung Fab Phase I & II, AU Optronics Corp.
In accordance with our client’s flexible planning strategy, this project will be designed and built in several phases and different zones. The site slopes gently from west to east, with Dadu Tableland at its western border, and enjoys a fine overview of Taichung City across the high speed railway and super highway at its east. The structures consist of a TFT-LCD panel Fab, a Module, a Center Utility Plant, an Administration Building, and various support facilities. Phase I contains the Fab of the 6th generation, Phase II contains the Fab of the 7.5th generation.
The challenge of the design is to arrange a large quantity of buildings while efficiently responding to the changing requirements of the client. By preserving a broad green area, the design is able to minimize the environmental impact of the massive structures, while a cantilevered glass curtain wall with night time illumination creates a focal point of interest, symbolizing the light and bright high-tech quality of the TFT-LCD products.
