Article source: L’EAU Design

Our ancestors house, which was built on flattened ground and had shape of ¤± or ¤§, was like a small confidential space for one¡¯s family that was based on Confucian philosophy such as geomancy and ethical relationship between husband and wife. Modern city, on the other hand, is reclaiming land from the sea, destroying the nature that had been preserved for centuries and mechanically producing artificial grounds in order to expend a fertile land for human life.
