Introduction

Built in March 29, 1957, the Education Center was the first public art gallery in Taiwan, and also the only government organization whose core activity is devoted solely to promoting “arts education”. Honoring the relationship of “human and art” as its establishment philosophy, the center lays the foundation of art by promoting arts education in schools; it also works with various parties in promoting aesthetic education, to “bring art to life, and bring life to art”. 

The center is situated within the compound of Nanhai Academy, where many natural and cultural elements are blended beautifully together. The Center was built in the ‘50s, with a new architectural post-war Chinese classical style. The center consists of two main buildings: Nanhai Theater and Nanhai College. There are also Nanhai Outdoor Gallery and Nanhai Arts and Culture Square. The center oversees and promotes school arts education and research, as well as promotion and counselling activities. It is an important place for arts publication, learning and cultivating creative talents. 

In 2006, Taipei Historical Buildings Review Committee reached a conclusion that the building (including Nanhai Theater and Nanhai College) should be considered a “historical building”. Together with the neighboring National Education Radio and National Museum of History, they form a unique group of structures within “Nanhai Academy”, preserving historical values and contributing to the beauty of the community landscape.

    Peaceful building with a link to Beijing

    2020-02

    The style of this building is very peaceful, there is a pond in the courtyard. At the moment, there is an exhibition, mainly in traditional form. By the way, the Arts Centre is housed in a building which resembles the Temple of Heaven in Beijing. This reconstruction is a work of art in itself, the design never ceases to amaze me.

    Temple of Heaven

    The replica of the Temple of Heaven adjoins the Botanical Gardens. Anyone who has visited Beijing will instantly recognize it. It is intended to be an architectural blending of East and West. It now serves a useful purpose.

    隱藏版的歷史遺跡

    2020-01

    南海書院址,曾是日治時期的建功神社,今日中式建築包裹著神社的主體建築,中庭的水池與書院外的玉垣(石欄)皆為原物,第一展覽室內也部分保留原社殿的裝飾,而穹頂的彩繪和壁上梅花圖樣,則是政權更替後的標示。

    とってもレトロな建物

    2018-01

    この付近におきましては南海植物園がございます。どちらかといえばこの建物はちょっとレトロな建物でたまに催し物が開催をしております。
