Nature is fundamentally science. In conjunction with the accelerating development of science, the architecture which interacts closest to nature has consequently developed throughout the timeline. The change has undoubtedly brought transition in our lifestyle as a natural reaction. Accordingly, in relation to the state of nature, there is corresponding science and certain stage of developments of diverse field associating with them: from Foucault to Deleuze, from Classical Mechanics to Quantum Physics, from Le Corbusier to many eminent contemporary architects/urban planners, and eventually from order to disorder. Here are the three points for the prime agenda for understanding the contemporary (social) science.
1. Nomadism. The nomadic life here does not mean people who live in a Yurt, but people's behaviours associated in their daily lives such as media, an airplane, a social tendency of individualism, a rise of women entering labour, international marriage and so on. The notion of nomadism here could be thought of as small particles or components, reminding of chaos and uncertainty. It also speaks for a microscopic world.
2. The roof. This, on the other hand, represents a macroscopic world, which defines a tangible and visible boundary created by small particles, people's democratic manner and their involvement. The shape of rectangle bears a state of order, and at the same time, conveys an idea of horizontal sprawl, whereas a vertical sprawl is artificial creating unwanted density by which undesirable compactness is anticipated.
3. Natural Stimuli. Each open space (where there is an opening at the roof) serves as a natural stimulus, where these places naturally invite people to engage upon nature. Since children are more susceptible than adults, playgrounds for children could be imagined; it was easier to have children to provoke the naivety in nature.
