Architecture is a process associated with almost all aspects in our social life today. Meanwhile, it can be as abstract as the most fundamental spatial enclosure, confronting all the basic problems it must solve in terms of adaptability and helping us to establish specific visual order in this chaotic world. The basic principle that the design should be concerned about is solving problems with the most reasonable and direct way of construction, responding to requirements of adaptability with ordinary materials and construction methods as well as trying to find out the potential visual expressiveness from among ordinary materials. This should further become a work-strategy applicable to the large-scale construction in the rapid development of Chinese urbanization today, as well as benefit the control of consumptions of limited human resources.
