Research Interests

In the search for methods of creating visually appealing and functional cityscapes and urban environments, our laboratory in the city planning and community building fields uses the built environment and special landscapes to communicate an integration of the main elements and systems of planning in what we call "urban design". While we consider the histories embedded in the built environment as one important layer of our ability to live richly in an urban world today, we must also consider the future of life and culture in cities and how those can all play a part in the sustainable city; likewise we must think about how life and culture will develop in the city of the future. In keeping with these ideas, we include urban preservation systems within the scope of our research.
Additionally, as part of our focus on planning, our laboratory's activities are not only based on the simple study of urban space, but also in the active pursuit of opportunities in real community development. This time in history can be understood, in many ways, to be a turning point for urban planning; even in our role as a university, we understand the importance of actively pursuing the cooperation of communities in planning for the next generation. Specifically, we are looking at not only the problems related to the use of space, but, we also consider ourselves to have a large role in research related to the realization of plans and design strategies for domestic locations in Japan, as well as those across Asia.
