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.
