2012年由街區計畫起步,臺北街角遇見設計今年邁入第五年。緊密的設計行動計畫以柔軟的方式探討街道美學、社會議題,激發跨領域的對話,讓設計力量持續發酵。

在2016年,各項小巧計畫逐一展開:街販者販售回憶泡泡糖,免費臨時商店Pop-Up Shop提供二手衣物交流、設計師推出街角茶席將隨機設置街頭,歡迎討論與交換;小超人及翻轉設計工作坊將設計深入校園,鼓勵國中小學童關注生活周遭,也期待教師們運用所長,將設計思考導入日常課程與實踐中;此外,各項街頭改變計畫將跨越不同場域及對象。臺北街角遇見設計將「設計思考」的種子植入不同領域、不同年齡層,期待能從小活動啟動社會影響力,讓「不斷提昇的城市」—臺北持續向前,成為更宜居的美好城市。


The Taipei Design, Action! Program, which arose from a neighborhood project, was launched in Taipei in 2012 and is now entering its fifth year. The concentrated design mobilization project utilizes a benign approach to explore street aesthetics and social issues, as well as promote inter-disciplinary dialog so that the power of design can continue to grow.

In 2016, a series of projects are being launched. Street merchants sell Memory Bubblegum, free Pop-Up Shop provide a venue for second-hand clothing to be exchanged, and designers organize tea parties which take place on the streets. These projects provide opportunities for the public to join in for discussions and exchanges. Super Kids workshops and Design Revamped workshops bring design into school campuses to encourage students to pay closer attention to their living environment. Teachers are going to implement the design-thinking concepts in practical. Furthermore, the various transforming projects are aimed at different locations and participants. Taipei Design, Action! is planting the seed of "design thinking" into different sectors and age groups. We hope that we can inspire the members of the community from a young age to see the social impact they can achieve so that "Adaptive City: Design in Motion" can continue in Taipei and transform the city into a better and more livable space.
