Introduction: The Chinese poem says ‘the way of architecture is the unity of heaven and man’. The formatted architecture of a thousand cities often overlooks the sense of humanity. The work combines the intentional human face with classical architectural elements, expressing the desired concept of humanistic architecture. The element of the ‘ladder’ expresses the idea of leading, it also implies finding peace in walking.
