Urban Design reconsiders Built Environment from the human point of view, beyond the boundaries of architecture, civil engineering and landscape specialized for quantitative satisfaction of Housing and urban infrastructure in the era of rapid population growth.
We consider and redesign the relationship between "User" and "Environment" in urban space. In order to improve that relationship, we design urban space and research institutions, methods and processes to realize it.
We carefully understand the topography and history accumulated in the urban space and keep looking at the reality occurring in the city to find the research subjects of urban design.
