Taipei is an ongoing design-driven
experiment full of change and innovation, as exemplified by its slogan for
World Design Capital (WDC) 2016: Adaptive
City - Design In Motion. In the context of urban development, design goes
way beyond the remodeling of properties to reconnect people and facilitate
cooperation; it is a multi-disciplinary system of addressing concerns shared by
all residents, while at the same time nurturing city-specific narratives. 

This explains why Taipei vows to further engage in designs
at community, social and international levels; foster a surprise-packed
metropolis through landscape and streetscape reinvention; and increase its
global profile as well as tourist arrivals by marketing local designers on the
world stage. Eventually, each resident of Taipei will be able to appreciate
good design and urban evolution as a noticeable part of daily life. 

As the host city of
WDC 2016, Taipei is offering a series of large-scale government initiatives
with global participation (New Year’s Eve design competition, gala dinner,
global city design show, forum on international design policies, unveiling of
the 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!
