In this workshop, students will have the opportunity to join fieldwork activities on the theme of architectural heritage of Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. Addis Ababa is one of the fastest-growing cities in Africa, and in recent years there have been many large-scale development and skyscraper construction projects underway in the city. On the other hand, the city is facing a crisis in which buildings and communities built over time are being wiped out. There is an urgent need to conduct surveys to document architectural heritage and take measures for its preservation. In this workshop, together with faculty and students from EiABC, Addis Ababa University, we will explore the reality of the historical neighborhoods by conducting architectural surveys and interviews with residents.

A mixed group of Japanese and non-Japanese students will be established to try to solve social problems by integrating the approaches of systems engineering, data science and design thinking(Problem Solving by Social Systems Science). The PBL program for problem solving by social system science consists of two types: the first is a PBL in which students from Shibaura Institute of Technology go to Indonesia and try to solve problems faced by Indonesian small and medium-sized companies by using systems engineering, data science and design thinking approaches. The second is a PBL program in which students from Indonesia come to Shibaura Institute of Technology and propose businesses to solve social issues in the world. Through both programs, students will practice solving local and global issues and propose business models using systems engineering, data science and design thinking approaches.

Chiang Mai, the ancient capital of northern Thailand, is the former royal capital of the Lanna Tai Kingdom, which has a long history, and has a unique architectural culture based on the rich ecosystem that supported the royal power. However, due to rapid tourism development and ecosystem destruction in recent years, cultural landscapes, including traditional architecture, are disappearing.
In this workshop, we will renovate old folk houses in traditional societies, based on the idea of an ecomuseum, which is attracting attention today as a way to sustain architectural and residential culture while residents live there.
The aim is to convert it into a facility that will become a cultural hub for the local community. While carrying out specific architectural design builds and landscaping, we promote the revitalization of local architecture and landscapes and contribute to the revitalization of local communities.

Let's make Japan a more environmentally friendly and vibrant city with better mobility?
In this global PBL, students from Shibaura Institute of Technology and the Vienna University of Technology will discuss the topics in urban mobility, aiming to propose a new way of moving and staying in cities from the younger generation's perspective.
The discussion will focus on topics that illustrate the differences between Japan and European countries in urban mobility. For example, "Advantages and disadvantages of public transportation without ticket gates," "Safety and other issues of electric kick scooters," "Why pedestrian space is important," and "The role and usage of urban squares." We will work on these topics that you only really notice when you go out of Japan and visit on-site, bringing back new discoveries and flexible thinking to Japan.

Laos, located on the mainland Southeast Asia, is a multi-ethnic country with more than 50 ethnic groups, and until the 1980s Laos had shut down the gate due to civil war and socialization. Recent reforms and opening-up on economy have brought great benefits to the nation, such as the development of national land and infrastructure, but on the other hand, urbanization has progressed and cultural diversity has greatly fluctuated. In addition to knowing the traditional culture of Laos, this workshop aims to promote the sustainable use of traditional houses in the local community by renovating. Furthermore, in the World Heritage City of Luang Prabang, training will be provided on conservation and restoration work for historic buildings by UNESCO and how to use them sustainably.

Harajuku Station (Shibuya Ward), the Nakagin Capsule Tower (Chuo Ward), the Tokio Marine & Nichido Building (Chiyoda Ward)... There is no end to the demolition of heritage buildings in Tokyo. There are various reasons for demolition, such as redevelopment, deterioration, and lack of funds. In this workshop, we will focus on buildings in danger of demolition in Tokyo's historic districts as case studies, and investigate them from various perspectives based on literature, historical materials, interviews (with designers, owners, operators, and users), and fieldwork (survey, photography, video recording, and 3D measurement). Through the results of the research, the value of the buildings and the reasons for their demolition will be explored in depth. At the same time, discussions will be held with students and faculty from the National University of Singapore regarding the re-design, preservation, and utilization of heritage buildings in Tokyo, with the ultimate goal of developing a design proposal.

The spread of infectious diseases that began in 2020, the so-called new coronavirus pandemic, has had a diverse and severe impact on society as a whole. Since the stage of infection was inside the space, even the physical characteristics of architecture were forced to change. Now that the infection is under control, a critical issue in architecture is whether we can create a so-called new normal.
Based on this idea, this program will investigate what kind of behavioral changes are currently occurring, particularly in mega-regions where people are densely populated. Furthermore, along with it, we plan what new space plans and designs will be realized. Based on the case study in Tokyo, we will gain knowledge that can be used to transfer to densely populated areas in various countries.

We will consider content aimed at solving Malaysia's environmental issues. This program not only takes place on campus, but also engages in activities that can only be done locally, such as visiting markets and rivers for sampling. In the future, we plan to collaborate with UNIMAS faculty to flesh out the theme and implement problem-solving training. In addition to the experiment, the Japanese students also felt that their fear of English and foreign countries was reduced through interaction with the Malaysian students. A total of 32 students are expected to participate: 16 Na students from our university and the same number from UNIMAS.

The mixed team of multinational, and interdisciplinary field performs synthetic problem solving based on Systems Thinking and methods. The overall goal of the Cross-cultural Engineering Project (CEP)@SIT is synthetic problem solving to industrial and community problems. Additionally, Oh My God (OMG) experience as
improvisation education is performed for getting the creatively adaptation skill to unexpected changes in a project. Successful students in the program will acquire integrated capacity of problem-solving, which is required when they work as a member of an international and/or interdisciplinary team, through synthetic problem solving experience in CEP@SIT program, whereby students would be triggered by setting their own theme selected from suggested keywords by the lecturers, then exposed 
hands-on experience on “Systems thinking”, “Systems Method”, and “Systems Management”.
