This week, we're sharing projects from Taichung, Taiwan, to Houston, and Johor, Malaysia, to Davis, Calif., with several stops in between. In addition to the projects that we give more detailed coverage, we like to highlight some of the work that architecture firms share with us every day through the Project Gallery—the user-generated portion of our site. So far, we have more than 14,000 projects, most of which were directly uploaded by firms to share with us and our readers.

In this weekly roundup, we showcase some of the coolest new projects to be added to the gallery—thanks to architects like you.

Giant Group Global Headquarters
Taichung, Taiwan

"Located within the Central Taiwan Science Park, the Giant Headquarters project will undoubtedly become a landmark upon completion. In terms of architectural design, the building form is dynamically sculpted to evoke Giant’s technological prowess, while its curvaceous shape and sustainable design features evoke the simplicity and eco-friendliness of the bicycle. The tower design takes full advantage of its unobstructed surroundings with floor-to-ceiling glazing on three sides and a generous 4.5m floor height to allow in ample natural light. Appropriate shading is provided by the architecturally expressive undulating slab covers and deep south-facing balconies. The expressive form of the exhibition hall along with an open plaza completes the overall composition."

Tiffany & Co. Fifth Avenue Flagship Store
New York
Office for Metropolitan Architecture (OMA)

"The project marks the first holistic renovation and preservation effort in the building’s 80-year history. OMA has collaborated with Tiffany & Co., on specific aspects of the transformation— including the re-imagined upper volume atop the building. This new addition (floors 8 to 10) of the 10-story architectural icon located at 727 Fifth Avenue will become an exhibition, event and clienteling space that meets the growing and diverse program needs of the brand."

Texas Southern University Library Learning Center
Moody Nolan

"Moody Nolan was selected to plan, program and design a state-of-the-art Library Learning Center Building for Texas Southern University. Texas Southern University is a public, historically black university (HBCU) in Houston, Texas. The proposed facility is approximately 137,000 sq. ft. focused on a modern design that evolves in bold new ways to meet the current and future needs of Texas Southern University’s students. The structure contains innovative technology which will foster a collaborative learning environment."

Latitude Dining Commons
Davis, Calif.
Harley Ellis Devereaux (HED)

"The design for the Latitude Dining Commons is inspired by the sun-drenched agricultural heart of the state. This is reflected in clear, functional design that utilizes exposed structure, pitched roofs, and large expanses of glass on the eastern and southern elevations to allow views to street, garden and patio, and connect interior and exterior campus activity. The Dining Commons will be a unique building to be enjoyed by all, filled with the light of the day, and intimate and warm in the cool of the night."

Factory in the Earth
Johor, Malaysia
Ryuichi Ashizawa Architects & Associates

"This project is an extension of the existing factory, reclaiming ground adjacent to the jungle in Johor, Malaysia. The factories in the 19th century gave priority to rationality and productivity, so we wanted to transcend the factory typology by incorporating elements that would make the Islamic workers proud of the new working environment they would be facing. Using the power of nature like rain water, sunlight, the wind, geothermal heat and vegetation, we wanted to minimize the production of harmful low carbon expelled to the environment making of the building a sustainable factory."

Suzhou Science & Technology City Hospital, General Hospital
Suzhou, China
GBBN Architects

"The hospital’s prominent site along a canal and its many landscaped courtyards connect the building to the city’s cultural heritage. Diagnostic and treatment spaces are centrally located within the complex so inpatients and outpatients have easy accessibility. Light-filled corridors are framed by functioning windows that let in the breeze, and allow lively shadows to play across the interior throughout the day."

Rabbit Hole Distillery and Campus
Louisville, Ky.
Pod Architecture + Design

"The architectural innovation is based on transparency and a “form follows process” concept: The structure took shape in direct response to the bourbon production process to showcase both the journey from the grain to bottle and the capacious copper and steel equipment."

Sona Vistaas
Bengaluru, India
IMK Architects

"Spread over a plot of nine and a half acres, the Sona Housing Scheme has been planned with the mission to provide housing to the 600 families that belong to the employees of the IT center of Bangalore. Built within the tree line, the development offers its residents a connection with nature, while creating uncompromised open spaces. Located in a residential area very close to two major IT hubs in Bangalore, Bannerghatta Road, and Electronic city, the neighborhood is mostly occupied by residences and low-rise apartments."

Lumbee Tribal Welcome Center
Pembroke, N.C.
Evoke Studio Architecture

Serving as a new "gateway" for the Lumbee Tribe and the town of Pembroke, N.C., this welcome center designed by Durham, N.C.-based Evoke Studio Architecture "creates a thoughtful and distinct complex which projects the region’s unique character and history, all while remaining authentic to its immediate community," according to the firm's project description. Evoke Studio Architecture co-founders Teri Canada, AIA, and Edwin Harris, AIA, shared their perspectives on achieving diversity and equity in the architecture profession in ARCHITECT's August feature on what radical change in the industry can look like.
