The Indoor Main Hall accommodates 5,600 fans in a range of configurations suitable for pop music, musicals, and award events. Leading to the Main Hall, the "Famous Steps" act as the TPMC’s 21st-century front porch: its amphitheatre-like topography creates opportunities for spontaneous performances and social gatherings. A "Public Loop" connects all of the venues in a continuous thread of public space that includes restaurants, retail kiosks, and recording booths—culminating at the Hall of Fame on the building’s third and highest floor. The building’s compact design preserves the majority of the site for use as a vibrant urban park, serving the many outdoor music festivals of Taipei while adding important green infrastructure to this rapidly developing neighborhood of Nangang.
