Architectural Design

Creating Times and Places that Weave Together History and Natural Features

The Architectural Design course includes exhaustive education in a broad field of topics covered in standard architectural departments, such as building design, interior design, theory and history of architecture, urban and landscape theory, building construction, environment and equipment, material engineering, and more. In addition, the Architectural Design course uses tradition and innovation as a framework for students to learn about, and serve as successors to, the history and culture of the region, studying processes that unify art and engineering, as well as theory and practice, as a way to study architecture. Students spend as much time as they like on bringing ideas to life, such as building full-scale models or performing their own measurement surveys to plan out the details of how to revitalize machiya townhouses. The skills acquired through these projects help cultivate human resources able to work in fields from interior design to urban and environmental design, taking advantage of the thinking skills, planning skills, and presentation skills, developed through this course.
