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.

Immerse in Taiwanese creativity in a converted tobacco factoryThe Songshan Cultural and creative park is a place to get fresh inspirations and break the regular mundane city life. It offers unique ideas, quirky designs and gives a sense of hope for the future. A converted tobacco factory now houses several aspiring designers’ works and artists’ impressions. There was also an ongoing event when I was there on sustainable environmental products. Besides the galleries, and the chic Songyan cafe that serve very light cheesecake, the area also houses rich greenery and even urban farming. May this place continues to provide many more inspirations to others in formulating innovative and insightful ideas!
A bygone area gentrified for modern dayI enjoyed this cultural center immensely. Formerly the tobacco factory during the Japanese colonial era, the efforts in adapting the architecture and space were well done. The inside garden is a must see. I highly recommend walking through the halls. I visited the many exhibits, the graphic design library, the library near the glass gallery and the various unique stores of local artisans and designers. Make sure to walk through the peaceful pond along the bridges. Allow some time to also visit the Eslite multi-level creative center with books and unique design products.
Heading to TaipeiThis would be the venue for the golden pin award for design that is held on this coming September 2019. I have heard much of the place and can't wait to travel to Taipei for the awards
Lovely walk aroundWe went for an exhibition which was ok, but just walking around the park and the waters edge was really lovely. We all enjoyed the outing.
Pretty coolSongshan Cultural and Creative Park is a fun place to explore. Lots of pop up venues for artistic, creative, interactive, and educational show cases.
