City Councilor Jiang Zhaoguo said that the initial evaluation of the Taichung State Hall reuse plan, which was taken over by the Ministry of Culture, had very clear plans, such as connecting the old city council to create an art park, and displaying the precious collections of the former Shuntian Museum of Art. . Comparing the two briefing sessions, the city government’s reuse planning was only divided into rigid categories in regulations, with no detailed planning content at all.
Jiang Zhaoguo also said that the city government initially rejected the Ministry of Culture’s plan. Based on the public’s expectations for the restoration of historical monuments and the belief that the city government had a sufficient blueprint, the city council allowed the city government to start planning for the reuse of the Taichung State Hall. He directly criticized that he did not expect that the plans given by the city government in the two briefing sessions were so crude. How could the public believe that the city government was treating the Taichung State Office well?
Jiang Zhaoguo said that in response to the on-site representative’s question about the lack of detailed planning, the city government responded that “anything can be used.” He criticized that the city government not only lacked a clear positioning of the Taichung State Hall, but also put all gathering space, business, cultural and educational activities, and office space into the Taichung State Hall. For the Taichung State Office, which is a national monument, this is simply a “hodgepodge mixed together.”
The Cultural Affairs Bureau stated that the revitalization of the state hall not only considers the state hall itself, but also the surrounding Datun County Hall and other building complexes. Currently, the investment invitation and outsourcing process is being carried out. In the future, a large amount of private energy will be introduced to participate in the operation of cultural assets. There is also parking in the state hall dedicated area. Spatial planning, revitalization of the old city council, etc. are also in the city government’s overall assessment plan.
The Cultural Affairs Bureau pointed out that the reuse of the state hall involves a comprehensive district-wide planning. Currently, there is a preliminary consensus among all walks of life that the state hall maintains its historical context and uses some areas as office buildings; in the future, the cultural bureau’s presence in the state hall ensures the value of the cultural assets of the state hall. They also have a positive attitude towards preservation and maintenance. Suggestions and expectations from all walks of life regarding the reuse of the State Hall will be taken into consideration by the Cultural Affairs Bureau. It is hoped that the State Hall can continue its historical significance. In addition to office functions, a considerable proportion of space is also planned for public welfare use. , introducing activities such as art and cultural activation, becoming the core of the old city’s aesthetics, and also fulfilling the strategic development mission of revitalizing the old city.
