Design science in Architecture and urban studies
Scientific examinations of space designs
We conduct research on planning and design methods pertaining to urban architectures and determine the kind of collaboration required in the designing process. Moreover, we develop technologies that can support such research, including virtual reality and artificial intelligence. The targets of our research are not only designs for creating new space but also architectures and spaces we have inherited from our predecessors for repairing and adding new value, so that we can pass them on to future generations.
