Dinkoff Architects recently designed a solar-powered passenger service center for the seaport of Kinmen, Taiwan. Since the seaport is considered the iconic gateway to Kinmen, it was imperative that the architects design a building that captured a sense of the local culture and history. The curving roof structure, for instance, draws influences from the bow of nearby ships as well as the swooping rooflines of the local historic architecture. The architects also considered LEED requirements in the design. In addition to the solar panel-topped roof, the architects added various solar mitigation devices around the building to minimize energy costs.
