Architectural and Environmental Planning

In order for societies to realize a noticeable level of affluence while keeping it sustainable in the upcoming period of decreasing population, we need architecture and regional planning that consider things such as human well-being, ecology and healthcare in addition to efficiency and functionality. By applying such smart wellness functions to architecture and regional planning, we analyze and evaluate not only efficiency and functionality, but also the psychology and behaviors of various users from a relational perspective, and use the results to create desirable plans, designs, practices, and policies.

Research Topics

 We analyze “Visibility” such as the “see-seen” relation in architectural space using techniques such as isovist (visible area) and Visibility Graph. We describe inside-outside ambiguities using deep learning. We derive spatial forms with the visual performance that can solve the trade-off between awareness and privacy in offices and nursing homes.
