Taiwan's performing arts is lively and encompassing as the recent Taishin Arts Awards show. And Taipei could really benefit from another venue, so it is timely for a new one to be built.

The Office for Metropolitan Architecture (OMA) is slated to build the Taipei Performing Arts Centre which is located in the frantically busy nightmarket area of Shilin.

The Centre will be 40,000 square meters and includes a 1,500 seat theater and two 800 seat theaters that can be connected or separated. It is expected to be completed in 2014.
One word to the wise: please no fireworks for the opening ceremony!
