- 【Icsid】- CITY OF TAIPEI ANNOUNCED AS WORLD DESIGN CAPITAL® 2016
Under the theme ‘Adaptive City – Design in Motion’,
Taipei will demonstrate why cities must be able to adapt to meet citizen’s demands.
Throughout its history, whether willingly or reluctantly,
Taipei has constantly been in a state of change, which can be attributed to
its success as the political, economic, cultural, and technological center of Taiwan.
The merits of Taipei’s bid were carefully examined by a selection committee of experts including,
Prof. Soon-in Lee, Icsid President; Patricia de Lille, Executive Mayor of the City of Cape Town;
Ayse Birsel, Co-founder and Creative Director, Birsel + Seck; Dr. Beatriz Garcia, Head of Research
in Cultural Policy & Impact, Institute of Cultural Capital and Senior Research Fellow in Sociology,
University of Liverpool; and Jens Martin Skibsted, Creative Director and Founder, KiBiSi/Skibsted Ideation.
Icsid plans to work closely with the implementation organisation in Taipei over the course of the
next two years, to help bring their proposed programme in 2016 to fruition.
“Taipei is a city driven by design,” stated Icsid President Prof. Soon-in Lee.
“In what was a very provocative bid book, we learnt of Taipei’s plan to focus its programme
on issues of sustainability and the responsibility of preserving the environment for future generations.
The balance between innovation and a respect for nature is what will allow Taipei to be recognised as
a true design leader through its designation as World Design Capital.”
"Our next step will be to fulfil the vision of the WDC and Taipei’s programme will act as a
catalyst for our existing industrial ecology, leading to the creation of more investment
opportunities and job openings,” concluded Deputy Mayor Chen.
“This in turn will allow us to develop more human resources and establish more market
opportunities for our design industry."

About World Design Capital® (WDC)
While there are many awards that recognise individual accomplishments in design,
the World Design Capital designation is unique as it aims to focus on the broader
essence of design’s impact on urban spaces, economies and citizens. The designation
provides a distinctive opportunity for cities to feature their accomplishments in
attracting and promoting innovative design, as well as highlight their successes in
urban revitalisation strategies. The World Design Capital is an initiative established
and managed by the International Council of Societies of Industrial Design. Past cities
to hold the title include Torino (Italy) in 2008, Seoul (South Korea) in 2010 and Helsinki (Finland)
in 2102 whilst preparations for Cape Town (South Africa) are underway for 2014.
