1. Description of Our Community
Tianmu is largely located in Shilin District of Taipei City, and partly in Beitou District. It is adjacent to Yangmingshan National Park on the north and east sides, borders Huang River and Shipai on the west, and is connected to Lanya on the west. The area that is outside of Chishanyan is close to Waishuang River and Shilin. Our school is Sanyu Elementary School, and is located in Shilin District, Taipei City. Our school won the honor of “2020 Taipei City 111 Beanchmark School”. Sanyu Elementary School expects to provide the children with the learning place where they can 'properly develop for self-realization', integrate the school development vision of 'health, harmony, study', and conduct effective transformation between knowledge and ability by professional teaching course under the basic demands of three studies in life, i.e., 'life health, ecology harmony, life study', so as to cultivate the students with a healthy and excellent world vision who are both active and gentle.
2. Summary of Our Project
We live in Tianmu. Why are there so many department stores in Tianmu? Why are there so many high-grade residences and foreigners here? We'd like to know about the reason. Thus, we select several phenomena that we observed for research. Firstly, why are so many large department stores gathered here? Secondly, why are there so many expensive high-grade residences in Tianmu? Thirdly, why the architectures in Tianmu are integrated with Western and Japanese style? We will deeply discuss the relevance of people, architecture and department store in Tianmu from the three points above. In addition, it is worth mentioning that we also use robots to perform the little plays of daily life situations in Tianmu and 3D printing to design the famous buildings of Tianmu.
