The "oriental landscape" we envision is not limited to shapes and colors, but includes distant mountain views and topography, farms and the activity of the people who live there and practice agriculture all as overlapping layers, and without specifying that scenery be defined by landmarks or axes, is something similar to a constantly swaying life form. By integrating with the unique topography that will become the "framework" for this landscape, we propose a sustainable city that uses the "ringed linear city" model for its "framework" and leverages the city's "BIG DATA" to plan for its transportation network.
