The Center is situated by the Tungshan River(冬山河), and across from the Near Water Park(親水公園).
Black roof tiles, brown wooden railings, and red brick walls form the basis of design. Each functionally independent building appears to stand on its own, but the overall combination of trees, stones, and water produces a harmonious, coherent whole.
The village clusters consist of the Administrative Center, Exhibition Hall, Theater, Concert Hall, and Crafts Education Center, a library, Folk Art Boulevard, Wenchang Temple, Stage, Snack Bar, and Dormitories for traditional arts students and teachers. Two valuable Yilan traditional buildings— s Guanghsiao Hall and Huang Chu-jen Residence—were also reconstructed here. The scenic experience area is bounded to the west by the banks of Tungshan River, which is channeled into the area as the inland waterway, and visitors can take a stroll as they marvel at traditional houses and wetland sights or stand atop the dikes to take in the riverside scenery.
