簡介 Introduction

都市里人規劃設計有限公司(The Urbanists Collaborative)是一家結合都市規劃與環境設計的團隊,強調都市人、事、物的整合營造,透過環境與城市活動營造來推展城市願景。

經由豐富的國內外專業經驗、寬闊的國際觀,與城市文化的在地體驗,我們提出符合台灣與亞洲文化之城市觀。並對於當前城市面對的全球暖化、都市化與在地性等議題發展出獨特的觀點與創意解決對策,以對地球與後代提出貢獻為職志。

都市里人認為永續發展的城市必須依賴跨領域都市專業者、與都市公民的密切合作,確保都市空間符合使用者的需求。我們相信全球化的現象必須藉由在地的反省獲得平衡,因此在現代都市主義的脈絡下,我們更重視在地文化、自然、與人類的特質。藉由與在地者的深入溝通,了解城市發展的在地議題,以提出具有在地文化深度的都市規劃與設計觀點。

The Urbanists Collaborative assembles a team that intends to marry urban planning and environmental design. With a strong focus on the integrative thinking in human, activities and physical environment in a city setting, we want to champion a vision for any city through seamless union of the environment and urban activities.
Drawing upon a wealth of professional experience and unique blend of local and global perspectives, we put forward a city outlook in sync with Taiwanese and Asian culture. Our mission is to play our part in the making of a better planet earth for our future through creative solutions inspired by visionary thinking, while tackling challenges of global warming and issues of urbanization and locality.
Here at the Urbanists Collaborative, we believe sustainable urban development should come from a close collaboration between interdisciplinary urban professionals and citizens of the city, because this is the only way to ensure the urban space meets the real needs of the people. Building on our philosophy that a balanced globalization reflects local roots, from which the context of modern urbanism arises, we are particularly committed to bringing out the best of local culture, nature, and human qualities. In-depth conversations with the locals allow us to learn the goals and needs of urban development, before we propose urban planning and design that truly captures the cultural depth of the community.
Our team members consist of urban planning professionals with 19-27 years of practical experience under their belts. In recent years, we've undertaken projects spanning a wide range of areas, including community empowerment, participatory planning, ecological urban planning, urban regeneration strategy planning, new urban district development planning, cultural park planning, urban design, architectural design, landscape planning, and more. We encourage community engagement because we value the power of participation. Our team members are also actively involved in various participatory visual competitions and architectural design competitions. Urban reform runs in our blood.

都市人與跨領域專業合作 Urbanists Collaborative

都市成長是一個時間累積的演進過程,這樣的演化來自於多重的動能,包含政治、經濟、社會、環境、氣候、科技、人文的力量。這些動能所形塑出的衝突與融合琢磨出各個時代的偉大城市面貌。我們相信都市的進步需要多元專業者的合作,而非個人主義可以成就。因此,都市里人強調都市專業者的合作精神,結合都市規劃師、設計師、建築師、景觀師、交通、土木、藝術家、文化人、歷史學家等的跨界合作,共同為現代都市的進步而努力。
Urban growth is a series of evolution through time. A mishmash of forces propels this evolution from different fronts--politics, economy, society, environment, climate, technology and humanities. These forces form the momentum of the confluence of conflicts and fusions, shaping the great urban landscapes of each era. We believe a city's progress needs the collaboration of professionals who can work together to deliver results. This is not a job for one man alone. With this in mind, the Urbanists Collaborative underscores the spirit of cooperation by tapping into a formidable team of urban planners, designers, architects, landscape architects, transportation experts, civil engineers, artists, cultural specialists and historians, whose joint forces and interdisciplinary efforts contribute to the progress of modern cities.

社會開發 Social Development

都市里人藉由都市策略規劃的專業技術,勾勒符合當代生活的都市街區發展願景。透過都市活動的引入、並與商業、住宅、辦公、文化、藝術、休閒生活等城市產品結合。從經濟、市場、社會趨勢等角度提出社會開發計畫,輔以客觀的可行性評估,成功地協助建構具開發創意且充滿活力的城市街區。都市的魅力立基於深厚的城市生活基底上,我們相信,多元的城市活動與風貌透過與文化、藝術、生活的結合,必能產生國際城市的主體性、能見度,以及城市居民的集體記憶,進而協助城市經濟的永續發展。
The Urbanists Collaborative paints a future vision of urban cityscape in line with modern life through strategic urban planning expertise. The infusion of urban activities links together commerce, residence, office, culture, art, and leisure, the elements that make up living in a city. We wish to bring forward social development plans that factor in economy, market, and social trends, combined with objective feasibility assessments, to successfully facilitate the development of innovative and vibrant urban neighborhoods. The charisma of a city is deeply embodied in the soundness of its urban life. We are confident that the connection between culture, art and life through diverse urban activities and styles is conducive to the making of a global metropolis teeming with character and charm. And together with the collective memory of its residents, a truly sustainable development of urban economy can be achieved.

都市與建築規劃設計 Urban Planning and Architecture Design

基礎建設、建築與城市地景是都市文化的載體,它們傳達每個時代的多重價值觀,它亦引領城市的長遠發展與方向。在專業者的長期實踐下,調整並適應都市發展的時代論述。我們相信都市人是成就偉大城市的重要主角,而城市專業者則是協助都市成長的構築者。
Infrastructure, architecture and urban landscape is the carrier of urban culture continuity. They convey the multiplex values of each period, and they also lead the long-term development and progress of a city. They are adjusted and adapted to the urban development discourse of each era, owing to the long-term vision of professionals. We believe that urbanists play a pivotal role in building a great city, and urban professionals are the architects of sustainable urban growth.

由分析萬華大同區在地居民對於生活需求及實際感受之差異為出發點,以基地現況分析、都市計畫各層面分析疊圖為基礎,藉由滾動式訪談分析癥結議題、社區紮根凝聚民眾共識、青年提案引入創意活力,並以公民論壇的開放式民眾對話與多元溝通,綜整與擬定更具可行性的策略與建議。

經由本計畫的規劃態度轉換操作,呈現出了與過去由上而下的整體規劃思維不同的階段成果,這或許也代表了過去政府投資大同萬華難以有感的部分原因與落差。客觀來說,我們理解凝聚都市再生願景的路途實非一蹴可及,目前的階段只是一個令人感受到參與熱度的準備工作與奠基打底,未來尚需有更多面向的資源整合與擴大社群參與,不僅需延續討論熱度,更要有階段成果的討論深化。


從多次實地勘查、社區工作坊與社區訪談及座談中,規劃團隊持續性的深入整合萬華大同在地癥結、議題與再生及發展潛力,並在計畫中使社區動能逐步熱絡後,藉由公開、大型的「創意行動」,由專業者從旁輔助,地方頭人帶領在地者討論經歷多次工作坊後已成型的行動方案,更精確的成為地方共識願景、做出社區宣示,並期能建立一個長期的、持續的、由地方自主的討論平台。
