According to a UN estimate, 9.7 billion people will become urbanized by the year 2050, which will come with the associated foreseeable challenges. With that in mind, we will invite cities across the world to take part in this exhibition, to showcase the influence of design on urban life and real life examples of solutions to social problems. In addition, the underpinnings of design process and practice will be used to vividly recount how Taipei as a city has developed.
