Political Warfare Building

A grand facade was deemed necessary when the originally simple research institute was transformed into a national military base. Bearing this in mind, the Political Warfare Building was constructed in front of the research institute. It was originally a single-story building in a shape resembling that of the Chinese character for the number eight (八) but later underwent several modifications. The second floor was the office of the Air Force Commander, with a layout that included a study, a closet, a suite, and a bathroom.

The Political Warfare Building faces the front gate on Renai Road, and there are guard posts on both sides that served as the base’s defense garrison. Constructed using the same vertical lines and slender windows as the Political Warfare Building, the two structures have been designated historic buildings.
