What is “World Design Capital Taipei 2016″ ?
“Adaptive City – Design in Motion” is Taipei City’s core appeal in hosting World Design Capital 2016. How can we apply innovative “design thinking” to overcome the constraints that limited resources place on our city’s development, to pursue continual renewal and change in our urban governance, to create happiness in the lives of our citizens, to bring citizens a better quality of life in a livable city, and to create a forward-looking city with design vision? These are the goals and directions that Taipei City is constantly thinking about and seeking progress toward.
We firmly believe that cultivating modern citizens who are able to solve problems and practice design thinking can be a driving force to promote a city’s continual readjustment and evolution. Through 6 micro films, we tried to introduce the pretty and design spot lights in Taipei to participation of designers, city residents, and experts from different fields .
