Life and art

Introduction -

This department was established in 2000, and a graduate program was subsequently set up in the 2007-8 academic year. The department conducts research on and manages conservation of cultural features of Taiwan. The department also passes down ornamental art techniques of traditional architectures.

Focus of the Department -

Our department preserves formulas, patterns and techniques of “antique architectures” in Taiwan local culture, and strives to gain a correct understanding of the origins of practical ornaments. In addition to cultivating talent for architecture repair and conservation, our department also founded a pattern database for Taiwan craft arts based on field investigations. The department has also established a cultural asset database, and conducts research on the repair and conservation of individual architectures..

Education in the Department -

Education in the Department of Architecture and Art Conservation is a modified version of the oral language-based master-disciple system. The new system includes “theoretical training” and “traditional techniques.” Our department also invites master craftsmen and artists to participate in our teaching program, tutoring our students in traditional techniques according to their respective specialties. The traditional relationship between student and teacher maintained in our department is complemented by field investigation and data collection based on art records and documents. The department also offers BFA and MFA programs.
