About 

From the beginning of my architectural career, I had three aims. First of all, main question is on the relationship between people’s emotional response and flexibility of space. Secondly, I want to investigate ‘how to define buildings as systematic life-form' that can be self-grow and self-maintain. Third, I try to find a means to create a new philosophy about spaces and humans in an individual aspect. None of these aims are easy at all, but to reach the right answer, utilizing the generative methods would help me for certain. I know three years might short to achieve something which makes the world rolling, but worth to begin with a greater purpose.
