Abstract

There is a concern about the need for a global city to
formulate urban cultural regeneration strategies to transform
idle or abandoned campuses into cultural consumption spaces,
which help build a town that characterizes artistic innovation,
space revitalization, exhibition and performances in combination
with the local culture. This study focuses on the case of the
Dadong Culture and Arts Center in the Kaohsiung City of
Taiwan using the SERVQUAL instrument of the service quality
model to draft a questionnaire. This study uses the Impact
Range-Performance Analysis (IRPA) and Impact Asymmetry
Analysis (IA) to evaluate the service quality of the Center and to
explore what needs improvement. Applied Management Studies
and user Satisfaction Index to explore the service quality visions
by internal and external as feedback on the planning for
reference is a difficult task or action. The results show that the
Da Dong Culture and Arts Center does not have a focused and
definite development orientation and policies that lead to the lack
of its unique characteristics. The Center does not satisfy the
actual needs of urban residents well either, such as parking space
provision, integration of the community surroundings,
information disclosure on its official website, and especially the
conversion of the neighborhood into a heritage district.
