Project 3: Box of Uncertainties
Working in a design field like interior design, I have to be involved with Feng Shui because everyone appreciates the benefits of beautiful, comfortable living environments, including doing business. However, Feng Shui considers that your surroundings affect your level of material comfort and your physical and mental health, your relationships, and your worldly success. On the other hand, based on my experience, some Designer always conflicts with Geomancer (who is an expert in Feng Shui), so many times, design is limited by Feng shui and Belief.
So, I'm interested and uncertain about in overlap space between functionality and belief, Is it possible for reshaping or reform in a different way?
Then, I was going to study more about Feng Shui. For example,
What is the principle of Feng Shui?
Is Feng Shui a Science?
Understanding the Principles of Feng Shui
The image of Feng Shui might relate to the design field.
My diary book records some topics and keywords that inspired me.

1. This research will indicate the similarities between sustainable design and principles and practice of Feng Shui by studying sustainable building. In conclusion, the result shows similarities concepts between sustainable design and Feng Shui principles. These provide evidence of the Feng Shui concept that can adapt to modern design.
From my perspective, I agree with this research that it is a good example of showing Feng Shui is still essential and connects with the modern world.

2. The research will investigate the positive impact of the Feng Shui concept in the Modern House. Conclusion: According to the research, many Feng Shui principles positively influence bringing positive functionality instead of following the superstitious reason.
In my view, this research indicates a comparative perspective on the subject of Feng Shui principles and design principles' impact on functionality.

3. This research indicates how to apply the Feng Shui Principle to Interior design that aims to promote comfort and happiness by creating a harmony between the five-element following the Feng Shui principle, such as the interrelationship the shape and colour, 8 directions on the building plan and Feng Shui constituent elements. As a result, the Feng Shui principle can establish comfort and happiness.
In my perspective, I agree with this. This resource is helpful and clear as it is clearly stated. It can be used to refer to the next.
What going next…..( an assumption)
After receiving feedback and researching Feng Shui, many resources promote and show that Feng Shui can be applied to the secret interior design work and Architecture. On the other hand, my uncertainty is how can Feng Shui be adapted to other fields?
How can feng shui principles be adapted to other design fields?
How can feng shui principles transform into a modern way?
How can I simplify traditional Feng Shui for general people understanding?
That is my research journey in project 3 ( The Box of Uncertainties). This project will push you to find out a new experiences in your life that provoke you to ask questions about the unknown or your area of interest that you are uncertain about.
