Visualizing the knowhow about designs

When you are engaged in creating designs in a professional capacity, you acquire the knowhow akin to “craftsman’s intuition.” This is called “tacit knowledge.” Visualizing this type of knowledge (converting it into explicit knowledge) will help in the understanding of what it takes to produce good designs. Our laboratory’s main research subject is to visualize this tacit knowledge.

For Society

When we are overloaded with work every day, it is difficult for us to convert tacit knowledge to explicit knowledge. However, explicit knowledge generated based on tacit knowledge can be used in formulating design philosophy and design view sheets, in addition to planning for the development of human resources.
