Design as a Mirror of Society
In glass, we can see the reflection of objects. In history, we can see the reflection of
customs and rules. And in our fellow humans, we can see reflections of ourselves. As for me,
design is a reflection of society, a tool to uncover invisible social
problems by providing attractive experience and getting everyone involved.
Many disciplines attempt solutions to social problems, but I feel that their abstract slogans lack grounding in reality. In contrast, design has the power to create real-world immersive environments, through which the ideas and thoughts of designers can be conveyed subtly. It is like a mirror that reflects what we cannot see in the depths of our hearts. As I delved into landscape design during my undergraduate study, I began to think more deeply about how to reflect social issues effectively and integrate them into my work.
