Different factors are leading to fundamental changes in the values, form, and function of cities. How to hold onto our beliefs in a changing world and toward the good society is a challenge faced by both China and the Western World. With the conception of 'Lovable City', the authors provide an analysis of the important socio-psychological role of love in a city. Our group explores the way to deal with the challenge of negative change by planning 'Lovable City' from the aspect of enhancing intimacy, arousing passion, and maintaining commitment.
