Architectural Design and Information Systems Laboratory(SAWADALAB)

Designing architectures that connect people, nature and social environments

Since our livelihood is closely related to ever-changing natural and social environments of various kinds, we aim to listen closely to all kinds of “news” that the environment brings us and visualize them through digital tools and various other skills. We do this to improve existing technologies in order to design architectures in a specific way that is meant to identify and solve environmental problems. Our learning methods are based on an e-learning system that allows anybody to study anytime from anywhere. We also use an active learning using information and communication technologies (digital environment) to reaffirm the importance of “being here now.”

Study Fields

For Society

Against the backdrop of information technology advancement, the structure of modern-day industries and employment system has drastically changed. Thus, we aim to have students acquire the abilities to respond to problems with flexible viewpoints as well as the required digital literacy. This will enable them to help spark innovations that match relevant social needs.
