Building System Design Laboratory
Researching cities and architectures in a sustainable society
The building of architectural structure has come to a major crossroads. Our laboratory studies the forms that architecture and cities should take in a sustainable society. Modern architectures are required to deal with global environmental issues and work on resource recycling and energy conservation. How can we build architectures that factor in Japan’s future situations, such as low birthrates and a declining and aging population while responding to the needs of regional communities? We are not only researching pertinent concepts but also developing technologies for the existing architectural buildings.
