Summary of the laboratory

Based on the achievements of cross-sectional research in our university, we promote social contribution and provide activities for social implementation, aiming to establish a resilient society which can provide quality of life. Through hands-on learning experiences at studios in the area, we provide a resilient regional design research with the collaboration of residents, considering their history, their culture, and their landscape. To be specific, we support reconstruction of the area, being a liaison between municipalities and residents, having Mashiki Labo as one of our bases, which is the satellite institute established in Mashiki-machi, the disaster area most affected by the Kumamoto Earthquake.
