Achromatic people moving without composure and hectic daily routines are not allowed except for coming and going to the same place.

The city produces a quick and fancy flow, but since it is not a penetrative flow in every small alley, we still wait for the slow, humble spaces to remain their original appearance in Seoul.

For us who have lived far away from the earth, being close to it can be a symbol of humanity and composure. The reason why we need urban agriculture is simple. We need a buffer. Fill the city with loose and soft soil every nook and corner.

A solar panel was installed on the south side of the building to produce about 7,300 kwh of electricity annually. It is a desire for everyone to communicate with one another and share time for a better life and create social and economic value.
