Day 1 Reflection by He Shiying

EQ1: How is innovation a key feature to survival
Innovation is very important and an example would be how the people of the Guchi Village had adapted to survive the war. The people dug tunnels 3 or more meters deep as shelter and even added rooms to fit their daily needs in order to survive. An example would be the people cooking only in the mornings and make use an underground kitchen with a unique system for steam or smoke to escape, disguising it as fog in the morning. Another example would be making use of used bomb shells and unattended American uniform capes allowed the soliders to camouflage themselves and protect themselves against the Americans. 

EQ2: How is cultural integration reflected in design?
Based on the visit to the temple, many of the pillars are based on the 3 cultures itself. An example would be the inscription of dragons on the pillars.
