City Works to Live up to Design Capital Title

Taipei is gearing up to become the 2016 World Design Capital by incorporating design into administrative construction projects. Deputy Mayor Cheng Hsiung-wen made the remarks during an event marking World Industrial Design Day on June 29.

According to Chen, the city is sparing no effort to meet the demands of being a genuine design capital. While Taipei is already an advanced metropolis, there is still room for improvement in the design of infrastructure and municipal cultural planning. Chen reckoned that innovative design is conducive to sound urban development. Taipei is actively engaged with the international design world, conducting exchanges with Denmark, South Africa, and other countries.To coincide with the World Industrial Design Day organized by International Council of Societies of Industrial Design (ICSID), Chen noted that the city government will seek professional advice from designers of Chinese Industrial Designers Association, Taiwan Graphic Design Association, and Chinese Society of Interior Designers to inject more creative energy into future public projects.The deputy mayor also forecast a slew of design-related events in the run-up to 2016, when the momentum will reach a climax through the presentation of year-round exhibitions across the city.
