作品理念(the design concept)：
The refugee crisis in Europe becomes increasingly serious. Currently, shelters available are insufficient to meet the needs. However, as I noticed in my primary research, some shelters are not operating at full capacity, while others are overcrowded. According to further research, information of these shelters was not accessible to all refugees and that governments were not able to make effective policies. To bridge the gap between less-known shelters and refugees, I designed this SHELTER WELCOME, which offers a platform for refugees, NGOs, and governments to exchange information.
I'm extremely honored to be selected for the DESIGN TALENT AWARD 2017. Here first I would love to express my sincere gratitude for the priceless guidance and support of my respectful mentor Shao-Wei Huang, Professor Wan-Yin Lai and Professor Heng-Yi Lin. Also, I appreciate very much that the jury valued my projects. I will continue further in social innovation design and devote my life to creating a better life for all human beings.
