Ludwig Hilberseimer put in his Metropolis Architecture that human societies produces organizational forms that correspond to their respective productive capacities. Architecture and urbanism have functioned, in my urban design study and practice in GSD of both, as two mirrors onto each other. I see them as reflecting, shaping and accelerating each other's transformations. Architecture to me, is inherently anchored in its both spatial and social context. The process of making architecture is translating immeasurable to measurable by manipulating architectural form with re-defining its elements that based on the old. With the use of architectural space, materiality and way of construction, the measurable expresses itself that evokes spirituality, memory which are immeasurable.
