Construction is well underway for the Wei-Wu-Ying Center for the Arts in Kaohsiung and due to conclude later this year — we can’t wait, so we’re taking a sneak peek now

In Kaohsiung, the Wei-Wu-Ying Metropolitan Park is built on the site of a former military complex. It is apt, perhaps, that what was once a place focusing on the destructiveness of war is now the location for the new Wei-Wu-Ying Center for the Arts of Taiwan — celebrating the pursuit of creativity. 

Following a design period from 2007-2009, construction began in 2010 and is scheduled to be completed by the end of this year. The proposed complex — already a striking structure even before it is complete — features a concert hall, opera house, theatre, recital hall and a large outdoor seating area. Hosting a total of 6,000 seats and the most technologically-advanced theatre facilities, the aim is that new cultural complex will draw world class performing artists and theatre companies.

It wouldn’t be too much of a stretch for forecast that the Wei-Wu-Ying Center for the Arts is destined to become the new icon of the city of Kaohsiung, the largest harbour city of Taiwan and one of the largest harbour cities in the world with 1.5 million inhabitants. In building the Center for the Arts, the city is symbolising its evolution from a harbour city to a modern, cultural metropolis.
