Ａ館「城市轉型 X 公民參與」用地理資訊與數據圖表，勾勒「城市尺度」的結構轉型；該館也邀請訪客參與城市模擬遊戲，思考城市地景變遷背後涉及的行動角色與社會過程。
新北 Beats 從「新北經驗」擷取值得擴散的觀念；而傳播的關鍵，是每一個好奇而願意思索分享的你。
The 2010 reform of administrative zoning in Taiwan granted the statues of “special multiplicities” to four divisions. Taichung, Tainan and Kaohsiung all had their original city and county merged to form a larger multiplicity. The only exception was the former Taipei county, which was “upgraded” to this new status without incorporating its geographical core, the Taipei city.
This newly upgraded multiplicity was named the “New Taipei City” (NTPC) and it marked the beginning of the unique “New Taipei experience”. The greatest challenge for this newly established city was to construct its own subjectivity with full-fledged urban functionalities, out of a circle-belt of territory which was once the subordinate peripheries of the Taipei City.
This exhibition “New Taipei Beats” is designed to record the heart beats of the new city. It traces its strategies for driving the structural transformation of the city, and reviews innovations attempted to improve its citizens’ life. We want to share our experiences and distilled wisdom with our citizens, and to engage in dialogue with urban planners and city-policy designers worldwide.
The exhibition has two pavilions: Pavilion A “City Transformation x Citizen Participation” depicts “city-scale” transformations with GIS mapping and infographic displays. This venue also invite all visitors to participate in a game of city landscape construction, which is expected to reflect the complicated social process among multiple agent-roles behind the scene.
Pavilion B “Citizen Life x Service Innovations” focus on “human-scale” policy innovations designed to serve our citizens at different stages of their life. Through artistically reconstructed experience, this pavilion aims to invite more awareness of the rationale and concerns behind these policy initiatives.
“New Taipei Beats” extracted ideas worth spreading from our experience; and the key to their dispersion is every visitor who is curious and willing to share.
