Urban Environmental Engineering Laboratory
Carrying out robust, dynamic discussions about the foundations supporting the environment of metropolises
At Urban Environmental Engineering Laboratory, we are conducting research on new “environmental foundations” upholding metropolises of the future to plan them from two aspects: social capital (urban infrastructure, lifeline, urban facilities and architectural facilities, etc.) and natural capital (natural elements such as water, greenery, wind and soil). We are searching for theories to build environmental-conscious cities and design environmental control systems.

For SocietyWe hope to picture sustainable future cities by inventing new perspectives and yardsticks to evaluate the environment from comprehensive viewpoints to seek safety, comfortableness, efficiency and human health.
- Research on urban systems of supplying water, gas and electricity, etc., and treating sewage and garbage, etc. and on systems to effectively use energy and resources
- Research on urban designs and environmental planning to allow urban cities to coexist with natural environment
- Development and demonstration of new regional lifeline systems to bring safety and a peace of mind to residents
