Symbiosis Healing Water

I come from a family of healers. Throughout my experience in architecture, the blood in my veins constantly ask: Can architecture heal? This work begins from a deeply personal experience of the most intimate and profound space. I think that an experience that can sublimate and surpass oneself has the potential to heal. We may live with numbness in our environment for so long that we perceive everything as ordinary. But architecture can be a medium for awakening. Water is an indispensable element for nurturing life. From a microscopic internal perspective, it exists in each cell; from a macroscopic external perspective, it is the lifeblood of human settlements and the natural environment. This project uses water as a medium to find a course of healing and symbiosis between the human body, the community, and the environment.
