The June Archilife Public Policy Communion of 2017 was held on June 18, 2017. After a series of relaxing and fun activities, Secretary General Huang Chin-ying made the following announcement, "Recently, heavy rain hit various parts of Taiwan, and Archilife Research Foundation NT Special Team has also continued to research the issue of climate change. Chairman Lin Chun-Hsing reminded everyone to "observe" the climate change and formulate coping strategies at personal, social and national levels. In addition, in view of the participation in "WSBE17 Hong Kong" International Conference, despite the unexpected situations prior to the conference, the task was successfully completed with the efforts of the members present. Finally, I would like to extend gratitude to everyone for their warm reminders and blessings prior to the trip, and I look forward to more opportunities to gather consensus and head towards Archilife's ideology." Later on, the two new knowledge keepers took turns to introduce themselves to the members.
Next on the schedule was the keynote speech. First, Mr. Sun Ta-lun, presented a speech on the "Gender Mainstreaming". He first explained that gender equality refers to equal rights, responsibilities, and opportunities between men and women, while recognizing the diversity of different groups. He then mentioned the important gender quality promotion works undertaken by the Gender Equality Diversion, Executive Yuan, stating the current population structure of "men outnumbering women" and the tertiary education rate of women aged below 39 being higher than that of men in the same age bracket, although women's labor participation rate remained lower than their salary. In terms of personal safety, victims of sexual assault and sexual harassment are usually women. The above data were analyzed to develop implementation plans and allocate budgets, while an impact assessment was conducted to ensure our country heads toward a happy society that respects diversity.
Next, Mr. Chen Chih-chen, spoke on "Sharing of Changhua County Lujiang Elementary and Junior High School New School Premise Construction Review Feedback". The lecturer first explained the said new school premises construction case. Since the base is located near Lukang Town, the traditional prototype buildings in Lukang served as the starting point in response to climate and use needs, showing the new geographical style. The lecturer supplemented pictures and pointed out the court design with leisure and result performance functions, while the corridor connected the teaching space. Finally, the speaker said that, in the course of the process, good advice and counseling to be provided. However, the public sector, clearly, gives too little time to architects. It is a pity that the design momentum is compressed only to accommodate administrative procedures and details.
Next, Mr. Lin Fang-ming, spoke on "The Introduction of Regulations of Grading Housing Performance". He first said the Housing Act clearly stipulates that central competent authorities shall establish a residential performance evaluation system in order to enhance residential safety and quality. Residential performance assessment is a specific and quantitative non-mandatory regulation. The assessment is based on eight performance categories, including structural safety, fire safety, accessibility, air environment, light environment, sound environments, energy saving, and housing maintenance. The lecturer said that the foreseeable future applications of residential performance assessments will take into account the constructors' trend to ensure more open and transparent residential quality using fair and objective assessment criteria, providing consumers with reference indicators.
After the speech, Secretary General Huang Chin-ying presented a gift to the speakers on behalf of the foundation. Then, attendees expressed and exchanged their opinions and views during the piggy hour. The June Archilife Public Policy Communion ended smoothly.
