Solicitation for Maps of Taipei National University of the Arts Campus

I. Activity Origin

A map usually serves as a guide to an unknown world, and a map of Taipei National University of the Arts bears the responsibility of pointing to the direction of art. In 1570, Flemish cartographer Abraham ortelius published the first modern atlas, which he referred to as the grand view of earth.  It was also known as the Theatre of the World because he believed that maps enabled us to see performances presented by the world, just as if one is inside a theatre. Please draw the theatre that is Taipei National University of the Arts, so that people from around the world will be able to locate their own seat or stage precisely using your map.
