「2017臺北設計獎」評選結果出爐! ParkUP勇奪市長獎成最大贏家



「2017臺北設計獎」得獎名單出爐!最高榮譽「臺北市長獎」由臺灣設計團隊游適任、張憲文、林家琪所設計的「ParkUp」作品奪得;「視覺傳達設計類」與「公共空間設計類」金獎,分別由香港Javin Mo、Saki Ho共同設計的「Design 360° 2015 issues」及臺灣陳冠瑋、曾令理、趙尉翔、蔡旼珊、曹凱瑞共同設計的「供霧所Mist Encounter」奪得,各獲得新臺幣50萬元獎金;「工業設計類」金獎從缺,銀獎有兩名並列,分別是臺灣李權恩、陳蓓芸、鐘佳明、郭錦龍共同設計的「充氣式微型手術室」及荷蘭的Leslie Nooteboom所設計的「komorebi」,各獲得新臺幣20萬元獎金。






本屆奪得「臺北市長獎」殊榮的作品「ParkUp」是Plan b實踐空間再造(Placemaking)的品牌,期望建構一套因應都市發展所需的解決策略,讓空間資源分享在公共與私利交織的默契下達到平衡,並對所居住的城市發揮實質的影響力。ParkUp古亭為品牌第一件空間改造案,由Plan b認養國有財產署管理的一處30坪閒置空地,前庭廣場提供宜人的綠蔭,給予孩童足夠的活動空間;後方空地由爬藤圍籬形成一處半隱蔽的場域,能適應多種戶外活動,如工作坊、講座及露天影院等;中間區域則由9座白色單槓構成,單槓適當的寬度與配置間距,讓輪椅能在其中自由通行。除了健身外,單槓也能架設鞦韆、吊床等簡便的休憩裝置,或當作鄰近居民們天晴曬被的鋼架。


「視覺傳達設計類」金獎作品為香港Javin Mo及Saki Ho等2人共同設計的「Design 360° 2015 issues」,Design 360°重新設計雜誌的風格,以不同的層次和視角開放的內容作為雜誌的思想和編輯原則,將小、中、大不同格式的三冊組成為雜誌的實體,體現了前衛的出版和設計風格,並與「生活設計」的雜誌精神相呼應。Design 360°嶄新的內容和形式,使得雜誌流通量大幅增加,在亞洲乃至歐洲的讀者群和市場仍在不斷擴大。

「公共空間設計類」金獎作品為臺灣陳冠瑋、曾令理、趙尉翔、蔡旼珊、曹凱瑞等5人共同設計的「供霧所Mist Encounter」所獲得。「供霧所」策動一場關於微氣候的藝術事件,透過水霧使身體知覺展開,賦予不可見的空氣調節一個可理解的形式。在偌大無方向性的廣場上,以一個方正回字形的構築體佇立著,於夏日陽光浮動照射、風動吹拂中,隱約看見霧氣從建築體慢慢溢散出,吸引並驅使人們走入,置身在逐漸濃烈的霧氣中庭,建築體、民眾都被包圍、消失不見,又隨著霧氣消退、逐漸顯現,彷彿濃霧森林一般,經歷了一段充滿時間性的魔幻過程。


另一件工業設計類的銀獎作品為「komorebi」,由荷蘭的Leslie Nooteboom所設計,現在地狹人稠的都市環境中,居家已幾乎與外在環境隔離,室內也以人造光源取代了自然光源,而喪失了時間或空間的感覺。「komorebi」利用程式設計模仿人工日照等自然光源的視覺效果,透過投影機將人們對於自然光源的需求與體驗,置入其生活空間,讓自然光源得以人造的方式呈現,創造奇幻的效果,重新定義了光源的使用。
