In order to live, humans make buildings in nature and live in there. This fact has not changed since the birth of mankind. It means to live in a certain space, because a medium of building is necessary for man to survive safely in nature. Based on these mediators mankind has been living. In addition, villages and cities were created and continued to grow in size. As a result, the building, which is the mediator, has been different in shape and size. In an expanding city, are city and nature now balanced? How do we balance it? How can we control these forces to create a balance? Through this study, we try to find the balance between nature and architecture, and furthermore, the balance between nature and us. I also want to find out about architecture that is more beneficial to nature and humankind by shaping and spatializing the result.
