Designed by architect Rem Koolhaas of OMA, the multi-theatre Taipei Performing Arts Center (TPAC) in Taiwan consists of three theatres attached to a central cube that consolidates the stages, backstages, and support spaces into a single, efficient whole. The exterior resembles a silver planet docking into a huge cube made of S-shaped, laminated curved glass in Vanceva’s grey color PVB that was fabricated by Cricursa.

The annealed glass measures 5 m in height with a 330 mm radius and 8x8, 10x10, and 12x12 laminated assemblies. The combination interlayer of clear PVB, XIR 72-47 solar control film, and Shale grey Vanceva PVB provides solar control performance and natural light ingress.

A neutral colorway emphasizes the dramatic architecture. The curves of the laminated glass echo the vibrancy of performing arts through movement. As light passes through the glass curves, a dazzling twinkling effect makes the cultural center's exterior design a source of enjoyment for theatergoers and the general public.

Perhaps the technical and artful aspects of the design are best explained by WOCA juror Ammar Al Assam, "Through Vanceva films, there is a clear visibility to the outside while maintaining UV protection and thermal control. The large-format glass panes in S-curved cross sections allow for less visual obstruction from structural elements. The curvy surface also generates playful distorted reflections, inviting the space users for an amusing and/or inspiring interaction with the façade.”
