The skyscrapers are always considered as the vertical city. However, buildings are playing the role of the interface of the urban public area in the urban context. How to connect the area on the both side of the interface and interact each? How to transform the public area from pure transportation to a rich humanistic flavor and rich life breath one? How to let the vertical city become the vertical forest? How is the city not only just a vector of space, but also a vector of urban life operations? All require the architect to respond and think in the perspective of a city.
