Take a look at the gigantic “UFO”! Yes, this is Weiwuying! The National Kaohsiung Center for the Arts has a stunning architectural design portraying a unique connection between ‘Life’, ‘Arts’ and ‘People’. It connects both the young and old with arts and culture.

Weiwuying consists of 4 indoor and 1 outdoor performance spaces; Opera House, Concert Hall, Playhouse, Recital Hall and Outdoor Theatre. Equipped with the most advanced theatre technology, visitors can look forward to immersing themselves in their favourite programs.

Concert Hall

Concert Hall

I was amazed by the vineyard style Concert Hall at Weiwuying which can hold up to 2000. The unique design allows the audience to enjoy optimal acoustic and visual effects.

The seating arrangement encircles the stage, bringing the audience closer to the stage for more intimate experiences with conductors and performers. It also creates an unprecedented sensational impact to the audience.

The traditional shoebox style interior will make you feel exclusive! Recital Hall is mainly used for chamber music, solo recitals and other smaller performances.

One thing that caught my attention was the sound effect! The sound-absorption value can be adjusted accordingly to meet the various types of performance needs. How cool!
