Project Overview

1. Description of Our Community

Tianmu is one of the most prosperous areas in Taipei. There are some foreign schools and embassies in Tianmu. That makes here more international. The prosperity of Tianmu Shopping Circle is for all to see. Tianmu Marketplace Development Association holds the creative market at the Tianmu Square weekly, which helps some creators to find the way to share their ideas and to increase their social life.

2. Summary of Our Project

Zhong-Cheng Rd. is one of the most important streets in Tianmu, Taipei. Lots of Koelreuteria are planted along the way. Because of that, Zhong-Cheng Rd. was called ?Koelreuteria Boulevard? as a nickname. In 1996, the Eslite (Tianmu branch) started to hold a event called ?Tianmu Koelreuteria Festival?, it helps the Koelreuterias on Zhong-Cheng Rd. be more famous. Our project is going to discover the life of the Koelreuterias and the interaction of the residents and the trees.
