The organization was established in 2003.[2][3] The organization will be upgraded to Taiwan Design Research Institute (TDRI; Chinese: 台灣設計研究院; pinyin: Táiwān Shèjì Yánjiù Yuàn) in 2020.[1][4]

In 2003, the Taiwan Design Center began organizing the Taiwan Design Expo, an annual event.[5] The Taiwan Design Center regularly organized the Golden Pin Design Award [zh] and related ceremonies,[6][7][8] a prize established in 1981 by the Industrial Development Bureau.[9][10][11] In addition to the Industrial Development Bureau, the Taiwan Design Center has also worked with the Ministry of Culture[12][13] and Ministry of Economic Affairs.[14]

In 2014, the Taiwan Design Center and the American Institute in Taiwan jointly established the American Innovation Center.[15] Since then, the three organizations have jointly organized several events.[16][17][18] In 2019, the Taiwan Design Center hosted the art exhibition of the inaugural Taiwan Pattern Design Festival.[19]
