We eliminate all urban diseases
The city is the highest representative of human civilization, and people are constantly trying to build a perfect city. But absolutly perfect cities do not exist. The only way to create a happy city is to eliminate the various urban diseases that we know. Based on the surveys of experienced cities on all continents in the past few decades, we could easily identify the existing diseases in the target cities, through research, observation, communication and interviews, and bury them in the future designs.
We initiate new lifestyles
The beautiful life scenes actually come from very simple human needs, and the value of space lies in this. Poor space design prevents the appearance of beautiful life scenes, while excellent space design can lead to innovative life. Through the proficient grasp of the spatial form, and the analysis of the users of the target city and project, we could implant a spatial model that can lead to innovative life scenarios.
We create attractive urban spaces
Since the modern architectural movement, buildings and cities, as the most material art form, and their economy and engineering have far surpassed the artistry, and most of the time, the artistry has been completely ignored. However, are the two really incompatible? Of course not, we have proved through classic cases that every urban block, every building and every place, can not only meet the economic and social characteristics, but also reflect its cultural characteristics through its appearance. Only in this way can users truly establish a sense of belonging to the urban space, instead of seeing a piece of cement forest without emotion.
