Urban Planning Laboratory

Planning to make cities and communities shine

Our laboratory is engaged in making rules that fit each community’s requirements, in addition to the planning of information transmission under the following research keywords: town development, city planning and focus on a community’s attributes. For instance, we hope to develop rules in collaboration with local residents in order to realize good dwelling environments. Moreover, there are valuable historical resources and beautiful landscapes that are left unused around us. We also research ways to rediscover such regional resources and transmit information concerning them.

For Society

We hardly notice that there are rules in controlling the shape of cities and architectures, which one can usually observe in towns. However, these rules make cities vibrant and comfortable places to live in.
