While examining current appearance of the city, which used to be the capital of Japan, as well as the urban structure and context of the city from an old age, it is requested to give a tangible/intangible form to a workplace as a space to work/live together in Kyoto of today, and to propose a new way of working/living in Society 5.0.

Several lectures on Japanese carpenter sprits, modern architectural design in Japan, Europe and Asia, up-to-date information on industry technology and Integrated Product Delivery utilizing BIM and so on … will be given in the course.

It is important to first consider what kind of a new way of co-living/co-working can be possible in the city that is well-established yet mix of the old and the new. Through a lot of discussions the students are encouraged to create something in the style of architecture or a series of objective structures, which will represent sustainable co-living/co-working in the latest society.
