It is important to redefine regional environment and re-planning urban visual space based on the relevant mechanism problems for new ecology and industrial policy. These are important indicators for the development of culture creativity industry. In the campus planning, traditional fence concept has been broken to gradually transform into open-type penetrable fence, trying to make the whole fishing port area full of marine creative style for the beginning of new fishing village culture.

This study aims to study the influence of rebuilding the fence in the campus, and explores its role in the community in terms of positive effects for community aesthetic education and environmental sustainability, quality of life, output value of tourism for improvement of local cultural style.
