In 2001, the Taipei City Government named the tobacco factory the city’s 99th historic site and converted it into a park comprising city-designated historic sites (namely the office building, the 1st to 5th warehouses, cigarette plant and boiler room), historic structures (the inspection room, a machinery repair shed and a nursing room) and architectural highlights (the Baroque-style garden, an ecologically landscaped pond, a public bath and a multi-purpose auditorium). For more efficient reuse of space, the Songshan Cultural and Creative Park was built on the historic site as a production base for designers and cultural & creative businesses, as well as a venue for performances and exhibitions. The park introduced to its premises a Taiwan Design Museum and TMSK through partnerships with the Taiwan Design Center and prestigious Taiwanese glasswork label LIULI GONG FANG, respectively, besides a snack bar that was converted from the machinery repair shed.

Showcase on locally designed goods and artWe went there on a rainy day and didn’t expect much. It turned out to be a nice surprise. The compound was converted from an old machinery repair factory, hence the rooms were expansive and still had a strong industrial presentation. Apart from the array of stalls on locally designed goods (many were also manufactured in Taiwan), take the time to look at the art galleries by local artists. We saw one with a landscape painter on the foliage in Taiwan’s mountains and the other on a multi-media production on old couples of a small village. Both were very interesting and reflected how the art scene in Taiwan engaged with local communities and the natural environment.
Kolkata (Calcutta), India
Must visit if you like artThis place is huge. There is a lot of art throughout and a few places to eat around and a couple of cafes. Usually it is easy to end up spending 2-3 hours here
Pulau Ubin, Singapore
Creative Art Space in an Old Tobacco FactoryThis is one of our favourite place to visit in Taipei. It has small local set ups that sells creative crafts, such as the bubble tea holders. We love how the washrooms are clean and there is a water dispenser (with hot water option) outside it. There is also an Eslite Bookshop plus departmental store nearby, filled with restaurants and food court! Do check this place out!
