Hualien County, Taiwan –


In the 21st century, many countries tend to globalize and convert the unused space into local feature as a strategy to activate the local culture and to enhance national competitiveness. Hence, the preservation of cultural assets and historic buildings are extremely important. Each old building and idle space has its own unique historical and cultural origin and context that is tightly bonding with local residents or local industries.

Old Hualien Winery is situated on interface between Jhonghua Road and Jhongzheng Road in Hualien City with a total area of 3.3 hectares. In 1988, in order to tie in with the urban planning, the winery was moved to Hualien Meirun Industrial Zone and closed down over 76-year operation. In 2001, the old winery site was designated as “historical park construction land”. Until today, the old site was now called “Hualien Creative & Cultural Park”, which has become one of the top five innovative cultural parks in Taiwan.

At present, because Hualien Creative & Cultural Park has not completed the renovation part yet, only few spaces are now open for public visit, including City Space Hall, Red Dew House, Millet Theatre and Nectar House. The serene cultural park not only provides Hualien artists a space to display their art pieces, but it also offers the general public a leisure place to appreciate the beauty of historical buildings and the charm of history.

The Red Dew House build in 1937 was a single-story Japanese-style wooden building. In the early days, it was a warehouse used to store semi-finished products and raw material; now it is an art space to display contemporary art pieces and innovative designs. The Nectar House was originally a raw material warehouse, and now it has been turned into a display centre that features historical related artwork. Outside of the Nectar House, there are rows of black and red ant images. If you look from a distance, it seems like these ants are quietly sneaking into the Nectar House. A touch of creativity makes the Nectar House more lively and interesting. Hualien Creative & Cultural Park is a recreational area integrated with history, culture, arts and creativity, which is surely worth a visit.

Tuesday to Sunday: 10:00 - 20:00
Friday and Saturday: 10:00 - 21:30

【景點】花蓮創意文化園區開放參觀 歡迎民眾蒞臨

蕭尚華/花蓮縣

二十一世紀許多國家將全球在地化與閒置空間再利用作為活化地方特色與地方文化發展的策略,以提升國家競爭力,因此文化資產與歷史建築的保存格外重要,因為老舊建築與閒置空間都有其獨特的歷史文化脈絡與淵源,與當地居民或地方產業有密不可分的關係。

  花蓮舊酒場位於花蓮市中華路與中正路交界面,總面積約3.3公頃,1988年為配合都市計畫,將酒廠遷址至花蓮美崙工業區,結束七十六年營運。2001年,花蓮都市計畫將酒廠舊址劃設為「歷史風貌公園用地」,現今由行政院文化建設委員會管理,規劃為「花蓮創意文化園區」,成為台灣五大創意文化園區之一。

  目前,花蓮創意文化園區內部份區域尚待整修未開放,而已開放參觀的區域包括城市時空館、紅露館、小米酒劇場、糖蜜館等。鬧中取靜的園區,提供花蓮藝術家作品展覽空間,也提供民眾欣賞古蹟建築、體驗歷史風貌、以及休憩散步的場所。

  其中,紅露館建於1937年,為一層樓日式風格木造建築,早期為半製品及原料倉庫,現為當代創新設計與藝術作品展示空間;而糖蜜館早期亦為原料倉庫,現為傳統歷史風貌相關藝術品展覽空間,在糖蜜館外有一排黑色、紅色的螞蟻圖像從遠遠的地上排隊前進著,再沿著窗戶悄悄地爬進蜜館裡,小地方的創意巧思讓糖蜜館更為生動活潑有趣。

  結合歷史、文化、藝術、與創意的園區,值得民眾到訪參觀,未來更期望園區能結合花蓮觀光產業發展,讓園區成為花蓮在地居民藝術文化展覽的重要據點,也成為外地遊客必來體驗觀賞的景點之一。(攝影/蕭尚華)
