Studiobase Architects is a young architectural firm based in Taichung, Taiwan, and was founded in 2003. It operates in the full width of the architectural and design domain. Works are mostly focused on the development of spatial prototypes that integrate local urban conditions and contextual landscape. This exploration finds its results also in seeking new ways of architectural programming. Ming-Wei Huang (born 1967) graduated from Harvard GSD with M. Arch., and B. Arch from Tunghai University, Taiwan, has taught in National Chiao-Tung University, Graduate Institute of Architecture. Recent projects include Humanities Building in Tunghai University (won the second prize of 2004 FEIDAD Award, and the 2005 Taiwan Architecture Award), extension for National Syncrotron Radiation Research Center (first prize in competition, under construction), the Eslite Bookstore in Taipei Miramar Mall, and Wen-Teh Police Station in Taipei.
