Taichung Museum Of Fiber Arts
Comment Score:

Weaving is a craft shared by all cultures in the world; it can be specifically divided into knotting, tying, weaving, dyeing, and embroidery. It provides our everyday needs, and can add colors in our lives with its creative designs.
Founded in 1990, the Weaving Arts Museum, a division of Taichung County Cultural Center, originally featured natural rush hats and mats made in Tachia and traditional Atayal weaving, where the collection has expanded to 869 pieces of weaving over the years. As a small-sized local cultural center that connects domestic weaving talents, it has published book series, held exhibitions, conducted exchanges with other museums and global partners, and put in efforts in talent training. From 2015 onward, the Cultural Affairs Bureau of Taichung City Government started to formulate a plan that promotes the Weaving Arts Museum to become Taichung’s first public municipal museum, as a way to respond to the promulgation of the Museum Act and pursue sustainable development.
The missions of MOFiA can be recapitulated in three dimensions: fiber, fashion, and green craft, which also point to the future direction of this museum. The aims of this museum are to incorporate Central Taiwan’s natural and human resources, based upon the richly diversified research results, thus progressing toward a professional organization that boasts lifestyle, culture, fashion, design, and eco-friendly ideas. With its integration of exchange platforms of fiber arts industries domestically and internationally, it is expected to become a new landmark of the cultural developments in Taichung City in the near future.

十三行博物館為北臺灣第一座考古博物館,博物館的成立起因於1990年十三行遺址的搶救發掘事件。當時政府計劃興建污水處理廠,廠址即位於遺址所在地上,考古學者大力呼籲搶救遺址,獲得社會大眾熱烈的迴響,因而促成保留遺址部分面積,指定為臺閩地區第二級古蹟,並1992年奉行政院核定,由臺北縣政府負責籌設十三行博物館,以保存展示十三行遺址出土文物。2003年開館後,博物館行轉型為八里左岸生態博物館的核心。 本館建築由孫德鴻建築師設計,其設計理念來自於考古發掘及先民乘船渡海來台的意念。全館藉由三組不同型態的建築群,分別表達山與海、過去與現在的意象,並以真實透心的材質,如清水混凝土、砂岩及老化的金屬板等,構築成完整的理念。 全館凹陷於地下一點五米,觀眾入館前,需經歷一段向上後再緩緩往下斜伸的坡道,象徵走入考古學家發掘的地下寶庫。本館建築最吸引觀眾的為「鯨背沙丘瞭望台」,與傾斜不正的「考古八角塔」。鯨背沙丘瞭望台象徵海中的鯨背與十三行人當時生存的沙丘,觀眾可以從館外地面拾階而上,觀賞夕照、淡水河海與觀音山之美景。傾斜不正的考古八角塔則象徵毀壞的遺跡與無法還原的歷史真相。 博物館建築於2002年榮獲「臺灣建築獎」首獎,及2003年「遠東建築傑出設計獎」之建築界最高榮譽,深獲各界肯定。 更多詳情請見↓ 官網: www.sshm.ntpc.gov.tw FB紛絲頁: www.facebook.com/13hangmuseum/ 交通訊息: http://www.sshm.ntpc.gov.tw/xmdoc/cont?xsmsid=0G245566982604740685 博物館室內外環景地圖:https://www.omniguider.com/apps/indoor.html?m=cFPSuZP9Dq9 簡介影片:https://youtu.be/PF25PUvSQUA Beacon使用調查問卷:https://goo.gl/kBHnZT
