The International Design House Exhibition, one of four Signature Events taking place in October as part of the World Design Capital® (WDC) Taipei 2016, will present an inspiring exploration of how global cities can use design to face the challenges of the trend of continued urbanization. The exhibition will explore the WDC Taipei 2016 theme of Sisheng: Life Quality and Health, Ecological Sustainability, Smart Living, and Urban Regeneration. Alongside Unfold Cities, a pavilion which will showcase pioneering urban development projects from around the world, the initiatives of the WDC Taipei 2016, such as the International Open Call and Designer in Residence programs, will also be on display in the Taipei Issuuuue pavilion. Citizens and visitors are invited to participate in design thinking workshops and discussions that aim to pave a new path for city planning where public participation takes greater precedence.
