Research Focus

[Research and Development on Theory and Method for Co-creative Community Design, Planning and Management]

Our laboratory’s principal work is not limited to the development of theories, but also involves the crafting of methodologies for co-creative community designing, planning and management, which can be later applied to actual projects.

Accordingly, we conduct cross-objective researches with the following approaches:

1)  Methodological approach

2)  Planning, institutional and structural approach

3)  Practical approach

Furthermore, we develop case studies, conduct field works, and provide discussions for students to enhance their communication skills and community-based interests.
