To create a better living environment, the Taipei Branch of The National Taiwan Craft Research and Development Institute strives to offer the public a pleasant learning environment: through in-person interaction, DIY activities, and gifts & souvenirs, visitors are able to apply elements of design and aesthetic concepts in their life. This would also increase the public’s understanding of the development of local craftsmanship in Taiwan and international craftsmanship, and broaden their experiences of the artistry and perfectionist craftsmanship.
Also, themed events are regularly planned, such as outdoor retro and vintage markets, holiday creative markets, indigenous carnivals, arts and crafts & barter parties, philanthropic crafts events. The branch also collaborates with nearby arts and cultural venues and became the new cynosure for public leisure and entertainment.

    Good for handicraft shopping


    The National Taiwan Craft Research and Development Institute, Taipei Branch aims to develop crafts in Taiwan. There is a good selection of crafts available for purchase. By the way, the craft institute is housed in a building that resembles the Temple of Heaven in Beijing.

    Temple of Heaven replica is pleasing


    I have been to Beijing three times ansd it's easy to see that this building is a replica of the Temple of Heaven in Beijing . The craft items on display here are interesting, you can also see the ornamental pond.

    Keep going up the stairs


    It's really an amazing space. On the ground level is a gift shop with items beyond the standard tourist stuff. As well, there is abundant gallery space on the ground level, 2nd floor and 3rd floor. The exhibits included a Taiwan lacquer artist, a ceramics artist and a new artist's gallery. And keep going up to a nice buffet eatery, a resource library and a cozy terrace.

    See some beautiful art work


    The craft centre aims to promote Taiwan art work. It is well worth a walk around. The division of "art" and "craft" is somewhat spurious, you will certanly see some beautiful things.

    Great art gallery here


    We were pleasantly surprised when we walked into the main building to find out they have several Murakami prints. We had seen a large Murakami exhibit in our hometown of Vancouver, Canada. Have fun wandering the galleries. The building itself is very pretty. There are students around as this is a learning institution.
