Wenmong Building on Guisui Street

The area around Guisui Street used to be a red-light district, and the Wenmong Building became the “House of Public Prostitution” in 1941. Built in the architectural style typical of the 1930s and 40s, it incorporated many elements from the European Baroque period. The interior of the structure retains some of its “brothel atmosphere”. Specifically, the space, decorations, and general design evoke an era when licensed prostitutes were still a part of the capital’s life. The Wenmong Building bears witness to the history of Taiwan’s sex industry, especially since it was also the headquarters of Taiwan’s movement against the abolishment of public (licensed) prostitution.
