Seki means mutual life. It is an inter-restrain condition in Go, where two groups of stones share two spots of liberty to prevent themselves being captured by the other. Such restrain create a perfect balance of power between these groups. Influenced by this logic, this USC International Housing forge a balance between individuality and community, as well as strengthening the connection between international and local culture.
