Handicap Support

All three halls in the Center are equipped with seats for wheelchair users. Wireless earphones and bone conduction hearing aids will be available for moderately hearing-impaired persons.

Environmental Measures

Photovoltaic Power Generation

The roofs of the Grand Hall and the Theater and the outer walls of the fly tower of the Grand Hall are equipped with solar panels (polycrystalline silicon), which help to reduce power consumption within the Center and contribute to global environmental conservation.

Rooftop Garden

As an environment-friendly building, the Center is equipped with greenery on most parts of the roof to reduce the heat island effect that can accelerate global warming.

Use of Rainwater

At the Center, rainwater is collected from the roof and led to an underground pit, treated simply, and then used for watering the grounds. In doing so, the Center follows the natural cycle of returning the natural water from the atmosphere to the ground on which flowers and plants may grow.
