In the second section, connection among architecture, car and city that shelters all vital aspects of man and urban space are discussed. This section intends to scrutinize the ironic structure of new spatial concept that is shaped by the connection between man and car so as to exist; through the man's perceptive integrity and change between urban scale and architectural scale.
