ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN LABORATORY
What are architectural designs?
Our laboratory places importance on “three dialogues” when thinking about architectural design: dialogues with other people; dialogues with the environment and dialogues with oneself. To have students acquire the skills to hold the three kinds of dialogues, the Architectural Design Laboratory relies on fieldwork, such as visiting architectural buildings and surveying streetscapes in addition to attending classes at university. The first step toward designing good architecture is to have good experience.
