I love to wander aimlessly and observe the minutiae of people's lives on the street. During a visit to a random residential area in Japan, I was moved by the exquisite gardens, delicate greenery, and culturally significant decorations I saw. Passersby were greeted warmly by homeowners sharing their creations. These experiences remind me that the spaces we design enrich lives, and that unseen warmth is the soul of the material world.
