CENTER FOR THE ARTS, ARTS FOR THE PEOPLE
National Kaohsiung Center for the ArtsStart
Weiwuying is Taiwan’s most significant cultural project since the eighties, featuring the most modern theater technology. It transformed from its historical military training base to an arts base present day with the mission to drive arts development in the southern Taiwan region.
Weiwuying sits on the northeast corner of the 47-hectare Weiwuying Metropolitan Park. Surrounded by an extravagance of lush green vegetation, the building exterior takes of graceful curvatures built in collaboration with Kaohsiung’s own shipmaking industry. The large canopy signifying banyan tree crowns glides to the ground in a smooth curve, blending seamlessly into the surrounding environment. People from close and afar can access the building freely, creating an intimacy between theatre and life.
