Grand Opening - Taiwan’s First Urban Regeneration-Themed Urban Concept Pavilion

On October 21, 2022, the opening ceremony of the “Taipei Urban Regeneration Idea Hub” was held, unveiling Taiwan's first urban regeneration-themed urban concept pavilion. The space used for public welfare purposes was donated to the Taipei City Urban Regeneration Office by the implementer of the regeneration project at Beian Section, Zhongshan District in Dazhi. In the future, the Idea Hub will be used to promote and convey ideas about and knowledge of urban regeneration.

Deputy Mayor Cheng-Sheng Pong said that the regeneration project at Beian Section, Zhongshan District in Dazhi was an exemplary project in the city government's urban regeneration Project 1.0. The urban regeneration implementer was Taipei Urban Regeneration Center and the investor was Kindom Construction, a perfect example of an urban regeneration project led by the city government and incorporating private investment. Given the fact that the issues concerning urban regeneration will attract the most attention from Taipei citizens in the coming decades, the future use of the Idea Hub will be supplemented by “Taipei UNZIP” on Facebook, managed by Taipei City Urban Regeneration Office. Through a virtual reality integration approach, a variety of urban regeneration projects and activities to explore urban regeneration issues will be strengthened. The Idea Hub features a “multi-use and easy-entry” atmosphere, containing a reading space decorated with urban regeneration themes, Podcast studios, and a spacious exhibition area that can accommodate more than 100 visitors.

During the trial run of the Idea Hub, the Taipei City Urban Regeneration Office planned a series of opening events such as special exhibitions to showcase the ten-year history and achievements of the organization. In addition to scheduled tours, an array of seminars and board game experiences were organized during the exhibition period. Furthermore, the Taipei City Urban Regeneration Office joined hands with the Chinese Culture University to hold a Mapping & Talking Book Club to elaborate on Taipei's urban issues and various imaginations in life. The initial concept of the Idea Hub was to draw the surrounding residents closer and promote community participation with a future goal of urban regeneration knowledge production and sustainability of the space.

The trial run period of the Taipei Urban Regeneration Idea Hub (1F, No. 5, Alley 26, Lane 397, Mingshui Road, Zhongshan District, Taipei City) is October 21 (Friday) to December 31 (Saturday), every Tuesday to Friday from 13:30-17:30, Saturday from 09:30-12:30 and 13:30-17:30. The Idea Hub is open to everyone.
