ARCHITECTURE WITH EMPATHY
photo: Tanja Ahola
I am inspired to design architecture that is in harmony with the environment, culturally rooted, and tailored to the needs of its users, while always striving for holistic sustainability. Through designing with empathy, awareness, and love for life, we can create spaces and buildings that promote a connection between people and have a positive impact on their surroundings. Empathic design can also play a role in preventing segregation, ensuring that all members of a community feel welcome and included in the spaces we create. Whether a project is small or large, urban or rural, it has the potential to enhance our sense of cultural identity, improve our living conditions, and foster feelings of tranquility and relaxation. Empathy is an essential attribute for architects to possess, cherish, and cultivate, as it enables us to understand the unique needs of our clients and create spaces that truly serve them.
