Future Plan
Our research activities primarily focus on two themes.
The f irst theme is the environmental consideration of architecture, a major aspect of urban life, through the developmental processes of construction, maintenance, improvement, rehabilitation, conservation, and destruction.
The s econd theme is the decision-making process regarding how to construct architecture that can contribute to the environment.
Both of these themes are related with the discussion including the use of the environmental information system in spatial planning and policy.
For example, we examine the exterior wall system, which is deeply connected with the outside environment, through out the design process and construction from the perspective of building construction.
Furthermore, we discuss information systems for building construction technology that can contribute to the environment.
