This is a planning cookbook. It contains recipes to make the Taiwan Strait a conscious city incubator. 

What is the Taiwan Strait?
And what is a conscious city incubator?
How does it work?

The Taiwan Strait is a liminal body, which means it is a threshold between two spaces, but the threshold itself is a space. This space, in this case the sea with its islands, coastal lines, mists, animals and shipping lanes is a region which combines the best of both sides of the threshold, but as a body has its own dreams and desires and has access to other spirits and imaginary beings. What if this space acts as a visual and visionary device, and a future is seen through this lens, which is if not a complete utopia, at least a collection of fragments of this future? 

‘All the world is a stage’ says Shakespeare in ‘As you like it’. And we all are playing parts on this stage. But the Taiwan Strait is one of those unique spaces where the stage, and the acting, becomes more visible, and more relevant. Because what is acted out on this particular stage affects many more than one life in this region. Therefore, this region is an incubator for the world at large. The Taiwan Strait is a stage on which the actors incubate future practices and rehearse the coming together of all the different actors into a play that grows as it moves through time, it literally co-evolves into new stages of urbanity.
