This 80-year-old infrastructure has unveiled its new face in 2020. Numerous exhibitions and events are expected to take place at POPOP Taipei, while leaving even more memories there. Located near Nangang Station, POPOP Taipei is an excellent connection hub for communities. The historical site offers indoor and outdoor space, perfect for meetings, exhibitions, seminars, workshops, musical performances and many more.
After a series of delicate refurbishments, POPOP Taipei is now an inspiring site for all to learn. Surrounded by the cores “maker, innovation and MICE,” visitors get to explore through our maker space, digital manufacturing zone, co-working space and multi-functional space. Transiting its manufacturing history to the brand new hand making culture, POPOP Taipei is a showroom for makers and an idea gallery for neighboring communities to discover new inspirations.
Built in 1943, Nangang Bottle Cap Factory was a local manufacturer for corks during Japanese Colonial Rule period. The factory supplied parts for 14 wine factories in Taiwan until 2004. In 2010, Taipei City Urban Regeneration Office remodeled it as URS13, an urban regeneration platform. The historical site, renamed as POPOP Taipei, was reopened on 5 Dec 2020 and has gained its recognition at Taipei City Government Distinguished Public Construction Awards. Under the Eastern Gateway Development Plan, innovative elements make the factory shine again while maintaining its authentic face and manufacturing spirit.
