Lanyang Museum (蘭陽博物館), Yilan, Taiwan

The museum was designed by renowned architect Kris Yao, modeled on the shape of the cuesta landform commonly seen along Taiwan’s northeast coast, with reference to other local geographical features including Guishan Island and the Wushi coral reefs. It reflects Yilan’s scenic, cultural and historical characteristics.

The Lanyang Museum in Taiwan’s northeastern Yilan County is among the winning buildings in the 2012 International Architecture Awards, according to the county government Sept. 3.

The IAA awards, launched in 2005 by the Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design, aim “to honor and celebrate the most outstanding architecture designed and built throughout the world,” the museum website noted. The event is currently co-organized by the museum and the European center.
