Ricky Liu & Associates Architects & Planners have chosen Light Bureau, part of AFRY, for the task of designing the lighting for the interior and exterior areas connected to the extension of the Taipei Fine Arts Museum in Taiwan.

Taipei Fine Arts Museum in Taiwan (TFAM) was founded in 1983, as Taiwan’s first museum dedicated to modern and contemporary art, and the official art museum of the capital city. A planned upgrade and extension of the museum infrastructure will increase exhibition space and provide better education and public services.

“Our keywords are Joy, Orientation, Safety, Visual Comfort, Identity, and Sustainability. All lighting will be with efficiency as priority. Besides that, all outdoor lighting will be planned with consideration to the existing landmark museum building and to recreation and enjoyment, utilising the dark sky, and preserving biodiversity in the area”, says Paul Traynor, Head of Light Bureau UK. 

The extension will include an underground structure beneath the park, making it the first underground structure among Taiwan museums. Light Bureau’s team consists of designers from Denmark and the UK, and their work is expected to be finalized in September 2023. Based on the complexity of the site, the lighting design takes parameters into consideration that ensures the best possible balance between art, architecture, and nature.

“The lighting design will strengthen the identity of the museum, adapt to the different activities and time of day to accommodate the area as a meeting place between the museum, city, and nature, and create unique user experiences throughout the year”, says Paul Traynor.

The completion date of the Taipei Fine Arts Museum extension is stated for 2027.
