Three aspects are covered in our research: The area and brief history of the Nanyang Street , the influence of buxiban culture thereof on the human-environment relationship, and the streetscape presented as a result of this culture. Emphasis will be placed upon the relationship between buxiban culture and the streetscape.

The Nanyang Street : Located in the Chung-Chen District of Taipei City, this street, strictly speaking, lies between Caesar Park Hotel and K-Mall. However, now that our research has exceeded its original area, this term is now used in its broader sense. (Here for area of research)

Buxiban culture (cram culture): this term indicates the phenomena triggered by the presence of cram schools, such as the emergence of surrounding businesses as a result of students swamping in that area, as well as the subtle change made to local sectors.

Human-environment relationship: in this research, this term denotes the correlation between students going to cram schools, pedestrians, neighboring stores, and surrounding businesses.

Streetscape: The area of streets encompasses the Nanyang Street , Xu-Chang Street , Xin-Yang Street , Xiang-Yang Road , Guan-Qian Street , Gong-Yuan Road , and the First Section of the Zhong-Xiao West Road . Streetscape here mostly means the distribution of buxibans and that of stores, and how they are related.
