Taipei is an ongoing design-drivenexperiment full of change and innovation, as exemplified by its slogan forWorld Design Capital (WDC) 2016: AdaptiveCity - Design In Motion. In the context of urban development, design goesway beyond the remodeling of properties to reconnect people and facilitatecooperation; it is a multi-disciplinary system of addressing concerns shared byall residents, while at the same time nurturing city-specific narratives.

This explains why Taipei vows to further engage in designsat community, social and international levels; foster a surprise-packedmetropolis through landscape and streetscape reinvention; and increase itsglobal profile as well as tourist arrivals by marketing local designers on theworld stage. Eventually, each resident of Taipei will be able to appreciategood design and urban evolution as a noticeable part of daily life.

As the host city ofWDC 2016, Taipei is offering a series of large-scale government initiativeswith global participation (New Year’s Eve design competition, gala dinner,global city design show, forum on international design policies, unveiling ofthe next WDC host, etc.) apart from neighborhood makeovers, the “Meet Taipei:Design” project, crossover collaborations,and other global-meets-local events that are sure to be exciting!
