World Design Capital Taipei 2016 Convocation Ceremony
2016 was a year of celebrating design and design culture in Taipei as host of World Design Capital (WDC) – an international designation founded by the World Design Organization (Icsid). The WDC designation celebrates the accomplishments of cities that have used design as a tool to reinvent themselves and improve social, cultural and economic life.
We invite all those who have participated in WDC Taipei to join us during our final signature event!!.

It will also introduce and welcome Mexico City (CDMX) into the World Design Capital network of cities as Mexico City will host World Design Capital 2018.
