International Co-operative Workshop University Grant Program(ICU Grant Program)

無標題文件 Origin
Cities such as Dubai, Beijing, Seoul and Shanghai have been the focus of media in recent years thanks to their outstanding urban planning and design capabilities. For this reason, the Taipei City Government began promoting the International Co-operative Workshop University Grant Program, hoping to lay the foundation for Taiwan’s urban planning and design capabilities through interactive communication between scholars and students of internationally renowned schools, and to strengthen international collaboration in an attempt to propose space planning for Taipei from a more advanced and internationalized perspective.

Approach
The design team is composed of domestic elite universities and top international universities in the field of space planning. Focused on the developmental goals of Taipei’s Riverside, Culture and Technology, sites were selected to propose new concepts and planning designs for creative urban space renewal.
