However, it change¬†my intension about happiness after we read the book¬†“Happy City” and had the¬†conversation about happiness.¬†I¬†learned that what¬†happiness means to the people who live in urban cities. Experiences¬†and connections might be the main concerns to create happiness for¬†people. Just because¬†people¬†will no longer live alone in urban cities. People meet others everyday and¬†everywhere. ¬†So how to absorb these critical principles into urban design to make a better neighborhood, including blocks, streets, parks, interactive space, will be the responsibilities for designers.
