Design Movement on Campus

A Social Movement of Aesthetic Renaissance

“Design Movement on Campus” is supervised by Ministry of Education and executed by Taiwan Design Research Institute, and aims to help Taiwan’s schools on all levels to cooperate with professional design teams for aesthetic transformation of campus environment. Through introduction of design thinking, “Design Movement on Campus” turns schools into places immersed in aesthetics to truly realize the idea that aesthetics education starts with life on campus.

In response to the launch of the 2019 new curriculum guidelines, future education emphasizes qualities of spontaneity, co-creativity, and communication and cooperation; moreover, with the opening up of campus, today’s schools have gradually become activity centers of community residents, and need diverse and user-friendly environment. This has led to the pressing need for aesthetic transformation of environment, so that old campus and learning sites can meet present temporal values and trends of education, paving way for the future.
