High accolade for Cape Town
26 October 2011
Cape Town has been awarded the title of World Design Capital 2014.
The Mother City competed with two other world cities, Dublin and Bilbao.
A high-level delegation, led by Mayor Patricia de Lille, is in Taipei where the official announcement was made this morning.
The bi-annual World Design Capital designation recognises cities that use design for social, economic, and cultural transformation.
Cape Town’s bid focused on creating an inclusive city for all.
