New Possibilities for Taitung

BY 張基義CHI YI CHANG
@ VOL 27 ON DEC 19, 2015

Mr. Chang believes Taitung aboriginals are an important asset to Taiwan, and his aboriginal friends have taught him to understand contentment, to share and care for the land and nature. He also believes that what Taitung really needs are its small buildings and its magnificent landscape, not grand architecture. He shared the success of Chishang rice, the international tourist Balloon Fiesta, the International Surfing Open and the international triathlon events and other activities in recent years. Since then, creative ideas have changed the destiny of the non-industrial areas of Taiwan's remote towns, and has further promoted the growth of new industries and employment. In the end, he talked about the transformation of the old train station and the surroundings of the railway, as well as the organization of design exhibitions and other activities, looking forward to more new possibilities for the city of Taitung.

張基義提到台東的原住民是台灣重要的資產,以及原住民朋友教導他瞭解知足、懂得分享與愛惜土地與大自然,他也認為台東不需要大建築,而是小建築與大地景。並分享這幾年池上鄉稻米、國際觀光熱氣球嘉年華、國際衝浪公開賽與國際鐵人三項賽事等活動的成功,因為投入創意與改造,就此改變台灣偏遠落後、沒有產業的命運,帶動產業與就業率的成長,最後以台東舊火車站、鐵道週邊的改造、與設計展等活動的舉辦,期待賦予台東未來更多新的可能性。

The Tohoku Effect

BY MARK DYTHAM
IN TOKYO

“When the Haiti earthquake struck, we ran an event around the world on 24 hour skype. A Year later, the shoe was on the other foot; the earthquake happened in Japan. 105 cities got together within 3 weeks and we held an Inspire Japan Event.”


From PKN Tokyo’s recent "Powered by PechaKucha: Tohoku 2020: Building a sustainable Post-3/11 Future" Speaker and PechaKucha founder Mark Dytham presents "The Tohoku Effect" on PechaKucha’s and PechaKucha Inspire’s history. No one could have predicted that the small one-off event would balloon into a popular presentation format to be used the world over. PechaKucha Certainly has its perks; It’s free, It’s simple, it lets people give their work exposure. Most importantly of all, it builds community. It is such communities that come together when tragedies strike and help build warm spaces.

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Wednesdaym March 17th, 2016.
