Architect Visit: Casagrande Laboratory in Taiwan

July 22, 2011

Built on the grounds of an old Japanese cherry farm in the Datun mountains of North Taiwan, the Chen House was designed by Marco Casagrande and Frank Chen of Casagrande Laboratory for an elderly retired couple. A simple and inspirational example of bio-climatic architecture, the house catches the cool breezes from the Datun river during hot summer and is raised above the ground to let the flood waters run beneath during the rainy season. See more of the firm’s work at Casagrand Laboratory.
