Hakka Cultural Center: On Construction
One of our cultural projects, Hakka cultural center has entered the construction stage. Hakka Cultural Center will become a place for various cultural programs and activities that are not limited only to Hakka Chinese community, but to embrace the public from all elements and layers of society
The design of Hakka Cultural Center is an Hakka-Chinese architectural building known as Tulou. Tulou’s literal meaning is “Earth House” as the basic material components of the house are from the earth base, such as soil, rocks, bamboo, and wood. The mixture of the Tulou’s ancient characteristics and modern architecture elements as the basic principles of the design for this cultural project. The use of bricks as a heavy material represents the rich cultural quality of ancient Tulou while glass represents the light and transparent quality of modernity.
