【看英文中國郵報學英文】105日到20日,為期16天的的2019台灣設計展,以「超級南-超級南方,非常台灣」為展覽主題,首日便突破20萬人次,創歷屆紀錄。

More than 200,000 people joined the grand opening of the 2019 Taiwan Design Expo, which kicked off in Pingtung, southern Taiwan, on Oct. 5. 

以台糖縣民公園為主展區,在占地面積2000坪的大型倉庫上集結五大主題展覽及「好屏未來市」,以台灣人熟悉的「超級市場」概念做延伸,雲霄飛車式「超級假期」用「手推車」裝置藝術串連,將展場變身為熱鬧的設計超市,呈現屏東豐饒的物產與生活美學。

The 16-day-long “Super South” (超級南)exhibition spans across 6,600 square meters at Taisugar Civic Park (台糖縣民公園) with the aim of building the world’s largest “design supermarket.”

To highlight the local culture, the curator settled shopping carts for visitors who can wave through the exhibition space in style.

According to the organizers, this is the first time that a major exhibition is organized at Taisugar Civic Park, allowing the public to learn more about Taiwan’s industrial past at the same time.
