At the centre of the WDC 2016 Taipei Bid video is a highly expressive visualisation of the topics of “Taipei as an adaptive city” and “Design in motion”. The video starts with a historic flashback of the city, complemented by short statements by renowned personalities in art, culture, design and philosophy in order to positively foster their subconscious awareness. The film thus underlines the city of Taipei’s commitment to culture and also its representative significance for the entire country of Taiwan. Finally, a smoothly flowing sequence of images illustrates what significance the topic of design holds for this city and the related role of younger generations in particular.
