Someone mentioned the lack of old buildings in Taipei in another thread and got me thinking. Of the handful historic buildings in the city, which ones do you appreciate? Have you discovered any old, historic buildings around town? Where is it located?
Though I’m no expert on the various architectural styles, I enjoy looking at old buildings. One of my fave is the old Land Bank across the 228 Park, a.k.a. New Park, on the corner of GuanQian and XiangYang Rd. It’s a stone monolith done in the classical Greek style. The thing looks like something you’d see at the Acropolis. Sometimes I just stand across the street and behold its beauty, but the passersby seem to give it little attention. Any others?
