The city government openly selects outstanding design works among international entries and severs this competition as a creative design exchange platform to discover design works with business potential, to encourage practices of social design, and to embrace the avocation of making a better and more convenient life.

In 2017, Taipei International Design Award celebrates its 10th anniversary. Taipei City Government has devoted to build a city with vision of design through these years. Designers are encouraged to reflect on the meaning of design itself, and think of the design as a tool to solve problems. Through Design Thinking, designers may address those issues which a community or city might face to. Through Social Design, Designers may raise their influences to make a better world. Through above two attributes, designer may reveal the spirit of “Design for Adaptive City” on the platform of Taipei International Design Award.
