WDC Cape Town 2014 hands over to WDC Taipei 2016

A remarkable cellist entertained guests on Saturday evening 18th October at the drinks reception held on the 8th floor of the Portview Building in Cape Town, prior to the Convocation Ceremony to hand over the baton to Icsid World Design Capital Taipei 2016 which was held on the 28th floor. In addition to the ceremony itself, we enjoyed spectacular views of the city as the sun set over the mountains.

In her handover speech, Cape Town Mayor Patricia de Lille paid a passionate tribute to all involved in the success for Cape Town of WDC 2014 and congratulated Taipei on its success as World Design Capital 2016. The Commissioner of Taipei City Government, Dr. Wei Gong Liou offered his thanks to Cape Town and promised an exciting and significant year for his city in 2016.
