Taipei National Theater and Concert Hall

 

Situated in the heart of Taipei in the Boai District, the NTCH (National Theater and Concert Hall) showcases classical design in channeling Chinese palaces of the past. Its edges overturned, its roofs painted gold, and its array of Chinese rouge colonnades and multihued arches display an imposing and elegant and characteristic.

The National Theater and Concert Hall with its 2 buildings and the 4 neighboring plazas make up

an artistic and interesting organic landscape, making it one of the important Taipei City landmarks.

Its streamlined architectural design evoked by the inverted edges of these classical and majestic national art havens stimulates the minds of its people to envision a future based on the classical.

For the people of Taiwan, 1987 is a very memorable year. The stock market climaxed leaving the nation in an advanced state of development economically, Martial Law was lifted making it possible for the ratification of reforms that would lead Taiwan towards democracy, and the National Theater and Concert Hall was built. The construction of the National Theater and Concert Hall heralded the rebirth of the country culturally and introduced Taiwanese performing arts to the world.

If the eyes are truly the windows to the soul, then the NTCH is Taiwan’s “eyes” leading to the nation’s “soul”.
