     Weiwuying, once a military training center, has been transformed into the 47-hectare Weiwuying Metropolitan Park, the centerpiece of which is the National Kaohsiung Center for the Arts (Weiwuying). Inspired by a group of banyan trees, Dutch architect Francine Houben devised a streamlined design for the center that could display the attitude of an easygoing life.

Visitors can easily feel the comfort of this place, lingering by the canopy terrace to enjoy the blue sky.
