The Afternoon Tea in NYC
A Utopia Serve for Women

Women cannot find a sense of belonging in society. Therefore, this project is to create a new social experience for urban women. According to the survey, the hangout space should meet the following needs: eating and drinking, reading, arranging flowers, manicuring, massaging, and displaying artworks.
