Walking out of jiantan mrt station, the first landmark you can see is the taipei performing arts center. This local art center, dubbed "Preserved egg tofu", has a solemn iron-gray exterior, but the interior is completely different from the exterior's coldness: walk through the halls dominated by silver, white and gray, and go up to the theater. On the floor, the blue like seawater seeps into the theater, and the rehearsal field is mixed with soft pink, giving it a gentle and bright temperament.
This internal and external contradiction and harmonious characteristics are also like shilin, where it is located. The history of shilin district has always been diverse and subtle. It has night market snacks for the common people and the former presidential cell numbers list residence with political solemnity. If you climb to a higher altitude, the caoshan pavilion on yangming mountain is also an extension of political symbols; tianmu at the foot of the mountain was once the representative of the "Tianlong kingdom" - a gathering place for foreign envoys, us troops stationed in taiwan, and imported department stores.
Therefore, as a local art center in taipei city, how to interpret what is local culture, and how to extend it to the world to become the representative of the capital of goodness, is the first question of the north art center.
