“In my view, architecture is not only about designing a city or a building, but just as important is the creation of a feel-good environment for the inhabitants. Each newly designed and completed structure must become one with its surroundings and society in general. When architecture mirrors the history, regionality, and culture of the land it stands on, that is the result of the TANGE “feel-good” concept. In today's society, perception varies and the needs of individuals are rapidly changing. Our mission is to perfectly capture those needs by creating a feel-good environment that elicits total satisfaction.”
