•  My selection criteria of the following architectural buildings and their public & individual interior spaces as articles for "SAH Archipedia" are their climate responsive design, efficient energy usage, innovative building operation systems-materials-details, integration of advanced technology into their designs for healthy and sustainable post-pandemic interior and exterior living spaces, and inclusive design strategy. All my encyclopedia articles are based on my on-site and research-based visits to the interior and exterior spaces of these architectural buildings. High quality architectural and interior photographs taken by me have been submitted to the editor in September 2023. They have been taken with relevant institutions' permission.
