"Taiwan Strait" launched in China

Last month, author Raoul Bunschoten presented the first official copy of the new publication Taiwan Strait to professor Wang Shaosen at a reading at the University of Xiamen, China.

The Taiwan Strait is a liminal space, and a natural incubator. These two conditions create a unique opportunity for implementing a future city-making process. 

The Conscious City concept brings together all the challenges facing contemporary city-making. It is a concept for the urban curation processes required for future cities; for adapting to the impacts of climate change, emerging intelligences, a growing population, affordable housing, the need for a new pact with nature, as well as navigating the peaceful transformations in the way we live which shape our future.This book serves as a manual for creating the Taiwan Strait Conscious City Incubator, introducing a gamification method that encourages actors and agents from various communities, institutions, and disciplines to collaborate in planning a new kind of city.

Taiwan Strait Conscious City Incubator is of interest to those both within and beyond the fields of architecture and urbanism; to architects, researchers, architectural historians, urban planners, students, as well as those engaged in politics, the economy, and culture. Most importantly, it is for citizens anywhere in the world who wish to play and shape the future.
