National Taichung Theater
If you see the entire world as a river, then I want my buildings to be like a whirlpool.Architect Toyo Ito.
If National Taichung Theater is a whirlpool then we are like a jet of water shooting up from within it, using performance to reinvigorate the arts in central Taiwan.

Taichung State Government
Taichung State Government is a government building still in use designed by Moriyama Matsunosuke in the Japanese colonial period. The Taipei State Government (now the Control Yuan) and Tainan State Government (now National Museum of Taiwan Literature) are works of the Japanese architect as well.
It is easily accessible and convenient as it situates nearby Taichung Railway Station, modern shopping district and traditional old street. The state government building along with the subordinating complexes are designated as historic buildings.
The state government building is a French mansard-style architecture featuring a two-story L-shape floor plan. The architecture faces east with a tower structure in the middle. The entrance on the ground level is adorned with Doric columns, while the second floor is constructed with ionic columns. The inward balcony design is to enhance the shading effect on the facade.
After appreciating the extravagant architectural details of Taichung State Government, you can also stop by the neighboring Taichung Shiyakusho for some afternoon tea!
位No matter which season it is, walking in the Maple Garden is a visual enjoyment! Located next to Taiwan Boulevard in Taichung City, Maple Garden is a unique U-shaped recreational greenland for the city residents. It has an area of 3 hectares, and contains a lake, red trees, green grass, and observatory bridge. It is a great place for talking a walk, going on a date, and exercising. During the day, there is comforting greenness, and at night, it is filled with sleepless lighting. It has only been opened for half a year, and has rapidly become one of the most famous scenic spots in Taichung.
Taichung City Confucius Temple
The Confucius Temple nearby Yizhong shopping district is a rarely seen palace-style architecture of the Song Dynasty. It open to the public, welcoming visitors to learn about the history, artifacts and the architecture of the Confucius Temple.
The blueprint of the Taichung City Confucius Temple construction plan was an integration of opinions gathered from studies, scholars and experts. A Song Dynasty palace-style model was adopted with an intention to distinguish Taichung City Confucius Temple from the Qing Dynasty palace-style Martyr Shrine nearby. Whereas, the architecture plan was a downscaled version of the Qufu Confucius Temple in China.
During examination seasons, Taichung City Confucius Temple will organize blessing ceremonies for examinees and students. Other events like the sketching activity are occasionally held as well to promote local culture and inheritance.
