“Designer” are the weavers of “extraordinary creative ideas”. The end product of their creative work is the synthesis of imaginations and dreams built into reality.

Humans possess creative thinking ability. Our ways of thinking and acting are so powerful – they can create positive and negative impacts to the world. And one of the most brilliant tools to tackle all the current nightmares happening in the world is “Design Thinking”.

“Clean Design” is the source of a good and fulfilling life where human users can reach their hedonistic sustainability. This approach, once applied extensively, will ultimately lead to sustainable urban development as well as design works that enrich human imagination for generations to come …

Clean design is portrayed through design forms and the environment designed into clean- design-shaped space. The relationship between the architecture and human is the key element to the design. The clean environment within the radius of clean-design-shape space is free from pollution and contagious diseases. Such public space invites humans to think, discuss and create “Now Normal Lives” together.

Additionally, design thinking process should be implemented beyond the radius of this clean-design-shaped space so that we can achieve a good and sustainable Now Normal way of life in a broader sense.
