The Connection between People and Community

BY CAI-YUAN WANG
@ VOL 25 ON JUL 11, 2015

From Taipei Vol. 25 - The Imagination of Social Housing

Cai-Yuan Wang
 Designer, shared her life history after her pregnancy as a starting point for the imagination of social housing. Child's birth has changed her perspective to see a different face of the community which she used to be familiar with. Only understanding the needs of the reality, following the context, the design can deep down to the life essence, return to the original temperature between people.

王采元 設計師 從懷孕後的生命歷程分享,作為她社會住宅想像的起點。孩子的出生改變了她的視角,看見過往熟悉社會的另一個面向。真實體察需求,貼緊脈絡的同理,設計才能深入到生活的底層,回歸人與人之間原有的溫度。

@ VOL 18 ON FEB 11, 2016

In this presentation, Barbara Steppe explores the world's oldest profession! Not that one...the other oldest profession - helping women to birth their babies. And that is a doula: a woman who provides emotional and physical support to a mother in her childbearing year. FreeSpirit Birth is the name of her doula practice and her intention is to awaken her community - one with a less than desirable set of birth statistics - to a very simple, tried & true way to improve birth outcomes and emotional satisfaction.
