Many traditional buildings in Taiwan’s cities have diamond motifs, especially those from the 1930’s to 50’s. With this drawing I matched central Taichung’s central street plan with one of the more common diamond designs. I’m interested in how these patterns in cities and architecture are repeated at different scales. Many downtown landmarks are featured here including the Prefectural Hall, the Quanyue Department Store, and the Japanese era mansion owned by Changhua Bank. The diamond sections are accurate and to scale. I worked off renders for the new buildings at the Prefectural Hall. After completion I felt it needed a border so added some general Taichung city buildings around the edges. Drawn in an isometric perspective, but not strictly, so it pops a little.
