Architectural Design Laboratory
Designing is reflecting on oneself
We find problems in various contexts, such as historical, societal and locational and find unique answers to those problems, which will be fed back into architectural designs. Moreover, under the theme of “things Japanese-style,” we have seminars to analyze architectures from the ancient to the modern times from multiple perspectives and to deepen students’ understanding of them.

For SocietyIn architecture, it is important to learn not only pertinent technologies but also philosophy behind them. Our graduates have a sound knowledge of philosophy of architectural designing. This is an attribute that society demands from the architects while they engage in architectural designing on their jobs, whether in a small studio or in a huge organization.
