Jeffrey believes that design should not only be "reasonable", but also "surprise"! The place spirit of commercial space is firstly related to the product form; the place spirit of business is also related to nature, culture, and art. Only the emotion and life embodied in the place spirit can activate people's inner perceptions and emotions. Share design experience and creative thinking through entries.
