Harmony and innovation within tradition is a phrase we often hear， but no words can describe the architectural design of the prestigious National Taiwan University.
The College of Social Sciences of the National Taiwan University is divided into two buildings. One building has 8 stories above ground comprising classrooms， study rooms， faculty rooms and a conference room， and the other building is the library. Everyone has been askingabout how the two buildings respond to the existing campus context. The answer would be that the allocation of the 168m long teachingbuilding together with other surrounding buildings frame an internal courtyard， with the library building positioned within the courtyard asa low volume， expressing our consideration for the contextual environment.
The study room is on both sides of the central corridor on top of the teaching building， and faces both the roadside and campus. Largedouble-height and triple-height sky terraces are built on each side. This tall and long building is punctuated by these sky terraces， breakingthe tall and long building down to a human scale.
Each faculty room and classroom has a terrace giving depth to the facade. In addition， the three earth-tone colors painted on the wallsa long the depth of the sky terraces accentuate the light beige color of the entire building. This color scheme was chosen to harmonize with the surrounding tiles and bricks on campus.
The canopy effect of the terrace on the teaching building blocks the direct rays of the sun， and the corridor and atrium were combined to ensure proper ventilation from both the horizontal and vertical directions. Around the conference center located in the center of the third floor， trees are planted in a large atrium， which further symbolizes the concept of architecture that opens to nature.
The library building is characterized by a tree structure. Slender pillars are painted in pure white on a plane of about 50 square meters，and natural light spreads softly from the lotus leaf roof which is supported by each column giving the library users an impression of reading under a shady tree.
The shape of the roof and the positioning of the columns were geometrically determined from patterns that resemble lotus flower petals，extending outwards from three center points. The area near to these centers will have columns positioned at closer proximity to each other， whereas in areas away from these centers the columns are further apart. The difference in column density allows spatial definition，creating a sense of place that resembles being within a forest rather than being inside a building.
The water flowing around the four sides enclosed in glass softens the reflection of heat from the ground. Around the water， the geometrically determined roof form extends outwards to the surrounding water and landscape design.
In this manner， the architecture of the College of Social Sciences of the National Taiwan University has brought innovation to the traditional campus using the geometry found in nature in terms of representation and energy efficiency.
