This project explores the possibility of using urban planning strategies to help the residents achieve their aspirations based on their personalities. According to the psychologist, Carl Jung’s Personality Theory, humans can be divided into four major types of personalities: the Artisans, Rationalists, Guardians, and Idealists. The site is divided and designed in four sections accordingly. The four sections further intrude and mix with each other to create some cohesive and interweaving spots that are dynamic and multi-functional.
