Instructions

Hello,

This is Takao Honyakusha.

We specialize in translating Kaohsiung,

And provide insights to phenomenon happening in Kaohsiung from a design perspective.



People often debate the proposition, “What is Kaohsiung”, But it is actually a question that requires translations. “Translation” means to convey the meaning of a matter or object by using a different language. We invited three professional Japanese designers from diverse fields to briefly stay at Kaohsiung, and to “translate what Kaohsiung is” to them by finding keywords that were relevant to Kaohsiung. What kind of imaginations can Kaohsiung inspire with these keywords? By using the perspectives of these Japanese designers as a basis, local Kaohsiung designers will then creatively “translate Kaohsiung”. By imagining what Kaohsiung is, these interactions between the Japanese and Taiwanese designers can then inspire the public to obtain a broader, more international sense of what Kaohsiung stands for.


Welcome to “Takao Honyakusha”, where we translate Kaohsiung’s languages, viewpoints, and spaces.
