Hsinchu Science Park & The One Trip


Hsinchu Science Park


The National Science Council set up the Hsinchu Science Park (HSP), the first establishment of its kind in Taiwan, on December 15, 1980. By ushering in technologies and talent from abroad, bringing about the transformation of domestic conventional industry, and fostering the upgrade of industrial technology across the board, the park is intended to help high-tech industry take off in Taiwan.


The One (南園)


The owner of NanYuan, Wang Tih-Wu, appreciated the talent of the architect, Han Pao-de. They created a land of grand retreat, combining the southern, Jiangnan-style garden and the Fujian-style architecture. Twenty-seven hectares of endless green is just like celestial terraces and pavilions. Starting from 1983, a competition of exquisite craftsmanship embarked. Precious cypress wood joined through the traditional mortise and tenon was selected and decorated with camphor wood, with carved folk tales or auspicious patterns. Hundreds of fi ne craftsmen were mobilized to finish it on site. NanYuan was completed in September 1985 and was named after Wang Tih-wu's father, Fu-nan. Receptions for the British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, the Russian President Mikhail Gorbachev, etc. were hosted here. It was also served as the recreation center for the United Daily News staff. Because it was not open to public, it was veiled with mystery until the end of 2007.
