Although we are still in the early stages of research, we are aiming to create a creative region similar to the research conducted by Richard Florida. We do not believe that creativity depends solely on social class or cultural factors, as many researchers think. Human behavior is unconsciously influenced not only by the natural environment such as rivers, mountains, and climate, but also by man-made objects. I believe that creativity will increase depending on how we create city.
