Hello my Steemit friends, today I will bring you to one of the most historical architecture in Taipei – THE RED HOUSE in Ximending!!! It is just next to the Ximending pedestrian area and it is full of cultural value.

親愛的Steemit好友,今天我會帶大家去台北最具歷史價值的建築 ── 在西門町的西門紅樓!!! 它就位於西門町徒步區的隔壁,極具文化色彩。


Little facts about Ximending 關於西門町的小知識

During the Japanese colonial period in Taiwan, Ximending was part of the Japanese people’s place of accommodation. Its name is indeed a Japanese name, which means the area outside the west gate of Taipei City, since it is located outside the west gate of Taipei City.

在日治時期,西門町是日本人居住的地區之一,它的名字本是日文,意指在台北西門以外的地區。

Ximen 西門 = west gate 西邊的門

Ding 町 = District 區域 / 里


The Red House 西門紅樓

Listed as a Class III Historical Site, the red-brick building has over a century’s history. It was built in 1908 and designed by a Japanese architect Kondo Juro.

西門紅樓在1908年由日本建築師 Kondo Juro設計而成,至今已有超過一百年歷史,並已被列為三級古蹟。

The Red House has two parts: the Octagon Building and the Cruciform Building.

西門紅樓可分為兩部份︰八角樓 和 十字樓。

It was Taiwan’s first public market building and it was turned into a theatre later in the 1940s. Nowadays, it operates as the centre of cultural and creative industry in the Western part of Taipei, where there are numerous arts and culture related events and exhibition.

它是台灣第一座由官方落成的市場建築,後在1940年代轉型為劇場,多為京劇和相聲表演。現在,西門紅樓是台北西部的文化和創意產業的發展中心,每天都有各類展覽和劇場,可謂文化和創意的搖籃。

Peeping into the Creative Boutique in the Cruciform Building
一窺十字樓的16工房(創意商品市集)

Starting from 2010, the Red House launched the “Cultural & Creative Industries Development Center” in the Cruciform Building, aiming at incubating creative brands. Let’s take a look at the Creative Boutique and explore the innovation inside!!!

在2010年,西門紅樓的十字樓被打造為「文化及創意產業推廣中心」,希望孕育出更多創新品牌,我們現在就去看看 16工房 ,並發掘箇中的新衝擊吧!!!

Shops of the Creative Boutique are located on two floors. There is a great variety of products being displayed and sold in order to facilitate the growth of new and innovative brands. Most of them are hand-made products like soap and jewellery.

16工房的店舖位於上下兩層,擺放了很多不同種類的設計和商品,很大部份也是人手製的商品,像是肥皂和首飾。

And some of them are products representing Taiwan and its characteristics.
也有一些是充滿台灣本土色彩的設計。

I really appreciate the Flat Wine Bottle Art located on the second floor. They make wine bottles or beer bottles into decorations or usable products such as clock, plate and candy bowl. This gives a second life to the bottles and is definitely turning the sense of environmental protection into a brand new culture. 😇

我最欣賞的就是在二樓的 手工窯燒酒瓶藝術 ,他們把酒瓶壓平並製成裝飾品或生活中可用的產品,如時鐘、碟子和糖果碗等。這等於為被棄置的酒瓶注入新生命,把環保的意念轉化為一種新文化。😇

西門紅樓有點老上海的味道。

你這樣一說我真的想起老上海了,建築風格都特像!!

很多臺灣人都是從老上海遷過去的。
電影《太平輪》就是從上海遷到臺灣的事。
白先勇的小說也多是這個背景下。
所以臺灣的一些東西是受到老上海的影響的。
唉,有一種說法叫——中國的文化在臺灣。
