This is to be achieved by basing its design and planning on the cultural assets of Kaohsiung, the strengths and conditions of the Project site and the characteristics of the pop music and marine culture industries. The pop music component of the Project, to be equipped world-class hardware, will help foster music professionals in Southern Taiwan, provide a leaven for pop music and its related industries and create a Southern Taiwan incubator for pop music.
