Research content

This laboratory studies a human phenomenon in the environment (behavior, memory, experience, development, psychology and meaning etc.) based on transactionalism as people-environment relations. And we are creating and improving the environment which raises “Quality of Life” by applying our findings to actual environmental improvement. This is the concept which also connects with “universal design” and “barrier free.” We understand that the present architectural and urban environment are immature qualitatively, and have many problems. Therefore, we are trying to learn the technology which can be proposed specifically creation and improvement of the environment.
