Traditional arts tn Taiwan, with changing economic conditions and a withering of traditional social relations, are now in rapid decline. The proposed Center for Traditional Arts has been envisioned by the Council for Cultural Planning and Development for the purpose of conserving to rescue and conserve this invaluable but quickly disappearing heritage.
The center is given both long-term and immediate objectives. In the long run, the Center will serve as a national-level administrative unit in charge of training, conservation, and other organizational affairs throughout the country. A school of traditional arts and crafts will also be established to train for new talents and provide opportunities for the experienced artisans and performers to teach their skills and knowledge. On the other hand, as an immediate objective, the Center will provide a setting for performances and exhibits, to attract the needed audience and promote their appreciation for traditional arts.
This project responds to the above objectives of the Center by encompassing plans for the administrative and training facilities and a “Folk: Arts Campus” on the same site. The former is responsible for conducting and coordinating the various training and performance programs. The Folk Arts Campus will be a place where traditional arts will be showcased and visitors will again have the opportunity to participate in the process that make the form and spirit of traditional arts a part of our culture.
With these objectives in mind, the following planning concepts and approaches have been initiated:
1. To develop the center as a living community.
2. To exhibit the spatial and material background in which folk crafts exist and to allow their inter relationship to become a focus of the visiting experience.
3. Ecologically sensitive planning and design.
4. Multiple patterns of recreation and “activity rings”.
5. Design guidelines that respond to the complexity of the project.
The first phase work on this 22 hectare site next to the Tung-Shan River recreation area in I-lan County is currently under construction.
