A journey of Taiwan's culture collisions.
Taiwan has received waves of migrants since the beginning of its written history.Together,there people of distinctive cultural backgrounds witnessed the island's historical milestones:colonisation,martial law administration and democratisation.Centuries of culture collision and fusion have shaped Taiwan into a multifaceted country,but its historical complexity often leads to discussions on what constitutes the Taiwanese identity and which culture best represents Taiwan.
Eatopia responds to the theme of the inaugural London Design Biennale,Utopia by Design, by presenting an imagines future through a culinary journey.Reflecting on the history of Taiwan,the dishes serve as a reminders that cultural collision and fusion have been and will continue to be powerful forces that people the country towards a united yet diverse utopia.
[ Xiu Long ] pronunciation of “collide” / “collision” in Taiwanese Hokkien language.
The story structure weaves 5 different groups of people together to create one whole.

Water is key for the health of children and their communities. Innovating Water is a sustainable community-based UV-solar water treatment system in schools and health facilities in Kenya. The schoolchildren are given safe clean drinking water treated by UV system everyday; Also, they are taught the merit of clean water, and the basic engineering education about the UV system and renewable energy like solar power.
Currently, there are 3 running Innovating Water systems in Kenya, and the solar power can be used to pump underground water, store vaccines, and even generate income for the community. Innovating water is developed and delivered through the co-creation of Kenyan charities, engineers, doctors and schoolchildren’s teachers. We source all the equipment from local business firms and test the safety of water with Kenyan public health unit. We produce the educational materials like brochures with schoolchildren’s mothers, the great Kenyan women who look after their family.
Innovating Water is not just about engaging and empowering local family and communities, but also giving opportunity of income generating initiatives. It’s not only to design a solution for global water crisis, but also to design future solution makers like engineers. Little children with a big impact.
