Have A Photoshoot At Some Of The World’s Most Unbelievable Architectural Structures



Also on the island of Cijin is the famous Cijin Rainbow Church. And guess what? It isn’t a real church, but an open space with structures so visually stunning that you’ll want to make it the site for all future photoshoots.






We first found out about Rainbow Church through Instagram, and after scrolling through hordes of incredible hipster shots - no two angles looked the same - we just had to check it out ourselves. What greeted us were two beautiful structures that played with the sunlight so well, every photo turned out surreal and just impossible.

New Hipster Places in Taiwan: 2. Pier-2 Base

駁二共創基地


City: Kaohsiung 高雄 가오슝 เกาสง

Country: Taiwan 台湾 대만 ไต้หวัน


Location: at the Pier-2 Art Center 駁二藝術特區
3F&4F, No.11, Dayong Rd., Yancheng Dist., Kaohsiung City 803, Taiwan

高雄市鹽埕區大勇路11號3、4樓

Kaohsiung’s shared workspace facility for creative industries, Pier-2 Base, is open for business, the Kaohsiung Bureau of Cultural Affairs announced last week.

The Pier-2 Base has 1,200 ping (3,967m2) of floor space on the third and fourth floor of the refurbished Huayun Building in Yancheng District (鹽埕), which used to be a Taiwan Sugar Co office building.

Space for 60 companies and additional workstations for individuals in the creative industries — with the latter having a seaside view — are available for rent by the year, month or day, the bureau said.

Features of the new complex are its spacious working areas and designer decor, including a floor-to-ceiling bookcase wall, and firemen’s poles and slides for moving between floors.

“The major pitfall for cultural and creative bases that we have seen in the past was the homogeneity of the enterprises in the campus,” Cultural Affairs Bureau Director-General Yin Li (尹立) said. “Pier-2 Base was designed to address this by encouraging synergy between different types of businesses, as well as those at different points of the industry’s chain.”

The spatial arrangements are designed to inspire creativity and the facility is made to encourage integration between different types of companies, Yin said.

The bureau has moved some of its own operations — including the facility’s management staff and its help center for video and filmmaking — to the new site to enhance public-private cooperation, he said.

Pier-2 Base is part of the Pier-2 Art Center, a complex of warehouses and open space that was opened up as a venue for artists, performances, concerts and cafes in 2006.

Sixteen companies have rented space at Pier-2 Base, including Let’s Design Co, last year’s winner of the ADA Award for Emerging Architects, Laboratory of Fragrance and Perfume Co and the Shanghai-based I-Zen Dress and Suit Designs Co, the bureau said.

The facility has three function areas for meetings, educational classes and dining services, Pier-2 Base management team said.

駁二共創基地開張 打造台灣「文創矽谷」

1200坪 提供60組團隊進駐

〔記者黃佳琳/高雄報導〕「駁二共創基地」本月起正式對外營運,一千兩百坪的空間,提供給六十組各類文創團隊進駐,高雄市文化局長尹立表示,過去這類的文創基地失敗主因,多為進駐團隊同質性太高,但駁二共創基地以異業交流與產業上下游整合為主,期打造成台灣文創矽谷,推動高雄產業轉型。

還有整排面海個人座位區

令人驚艷的是,串連兩個樓層的溜滑梯與鋼管,及大片落地窗外的港區風景,加上挑高空間兩層樓高的整面書牆,為剛起步的新創團隊,匯聚產業能量。

尹立指出,因應跨界、跨領域的時代變遷,「駁二共創基地」以創意的方式,思考共創基地的空間規劃,讓工作成為一件有趣的事情,讓溝通帶來更多靈感,期待透過異業結盟,擴散創意的價值,並擴大產業規模,推動高雄城市產業的轉型。

溜滑梯爬鋼管 空間玩創意

兩層共一千兩百坪的駁二共創基地,除了每間大小不等的辦公室,可提供六十組團隊進駐,還有一整排面海個人座位區,可以月租、年租或日租。

由於舊大樓的挑高有限,文化局將天花板拆除,並將三、四樓部分公共空間打通,做為跨樓層的國際級設計藝術專業書牆,而在往來三、四樓間,不僅可以爬樓梯,還可以溜滑梯、爬鋼管,充分展現創意無限的思維。

首波進駐「共創基地」的十六組團隊,包括二○一四年獲ADA新銳建築獎的「一起設計」團隊、創立香水品牌LFP香料香水實驗室,進行客製化香水服務的「odor funder」、在上海具有相當知名度的「依璨禮服設計」,以及桌遊工作室「滾動綠葉工作室」等。

駁二指出,「共創基地」更設置「共議空間」、「共學教室」與「共享食堂」三個機能性場域,期望未來所支持的不僅是文創人才,更為所有在高雄創業的新創團隊提供實際運作的協助。

駁二成「台灣文創矽谷」! 盼留文創人才

高雄駁二是許多文創注入的地區,高雄文化局將老建物改造成「共創基地」,將上千坪的空間將打造為台灣文創矽谷,除了用溜滑梯與鋼管作為樓層的串聯外,加上挑高空間2層樓高的整面書牆,舒適的公共空間,以每個月3千到1萬五的租金,提供吸引年輕文創團隊,現在已經有16個單位進駐。



簡單的設計空間,一整面的書牆,充滿著書香氣息,這不是圖書館,而是駁二吸引文創團隊進駐的共創基地,就連換樓層都與眾不同,都用溜滑梯和鋼管串聯,創造有趣的工作環境舒適的空間,很難想像這原本是座老建物,重新翻修後,將1200坪的空間打造成台灣文創「矽谷」,吸引年輕文創團隊進駐,甚至讓旅居國外的遊子願意回鄉。

禮服設計總監呂旻秀:「那一直我是在上海,創業大概9年,回到高雄這裡,就是說了解到,文創這裡有一個人才回流的計畫。」

為了將人才留住,高雄文化局以創意的方式,將駁二基地空間規劃成文創基地,讓工作不再無聊,希望透過異業結盟,互相影響啟發,擴散創意價值,但如何吸引草創的年輕人進駐,租金是一大考量,以每坪1千到1千5計算,提供3到15坪的場地,等於一個月租金3000到15000,目前已經吸引16個團隊進駐。

空間設計師陳佑中:「把那個尺度拉鬆之後,其實整個上班的環境是變輕鬆,還蠻好的,包含他有一些比較輕鬆的設施。」

進駐業者:「可以認識很多不同領域的設計師,提供我們新的靈感,或是新的合作。」

整個共創基地,從精緻的手工婚紗業者,到繪製建圖的建築業,甚至是香水實驗室,不同行業類別聚集在同一個辦公地點,沒有混亂交雜的距離感,更多的是文化上的交流。

Visitors flock to 'octopus' mailboxes in Kaohsiung




(CNA) Two mailboxes adorned with ceramic figures in the shape of octopuses have been attracting attention in the fishing village of Keziliao in Kaohsiung.

Keziliao in the city's Ziguan District is known for its seafood, in particular mullet roe, narrow-barred Spanish mackerel, squid and milkfish.

One group of visitors said the mailboxes were "kawaii," which means "cute" or "lovely" in Japanese. Chunghwa Post, which installed the mailboxes at a newly relocated post office near Keziliao Harbor, decided to decorate them with octopuses to reflect the characteristics of the fishing village.

The octopus mailboxes have become a popular attraction for children in particular who flock there to pose for photos.

In front of the post office itself, there is another ceramic figure depicting a postman pointing at the entrance, which has also become a tourist attraction.

Cat-shaped mailbox promotes tourism in southern Taiwan's Kaohsiung



(CNA) A mailbox in the shape of an orange cat has become a popular new attraction in Kaohsiung City's Jiasian District after being introduced last year as the southern city's first motif mailbox.

The "cat messenger" mailbox was installed in a local alley last August, one year after the local community launched efforts to revive the area, including colorful paintings on walls, according to Jiasian Post Office.

The office said it participated in the local community's efforts and painted multiple cat motifs. It later decided to introduce a new mailbox in the shape of a cat, in an effort to celebrate "cat alley."

Prior to Typhoon Morakot, which battered Taiwan in August 2009, the alley housed many eateries and was frequented by numerous stray cats.

However, Jiasian was one of the areas hardest-hit by the typhoon and in its wake the number of tourists fell and the stray cats disappeared, the post office said.

The mailbox has become a big hit in the district since it was installed in August, drawing many tourists during holidays, it said. Some couples have even traveled great distances to have their wedding photos taken there, it added.

In addition to promoting tourism, the mailbox is part of an effort to encourage tourists to mail handwritten postcards or letters to their loved ones and friends, the office said. Nowadays, people seldom send handwritten letters due to the advent of the Internet and smartphones.
