ABOUT US

Our motto is “leap before you look!”  見る前に跳べ! 

We simply believe nothing begins without jumping or leaping.

Step forward while fully utilizing the imagination is the common philosophy among the members that come together in our lab.

WE CARRY OUT

​fieldwork to study vernacular knowledge and skills of man on architecture. Moreover, the social system in order to design and build the house, the way of managing and creating everyday life in the house after the construction are also our main objectives.

IN OUR VIEW

fieldwork is the most important methodology for our research activity. This is the way to understand one's self and transcend the gap between 'them' and 'us'.

​WE NEED

students who are struggling with the unknown. Those who are interested in intercultural comprehension and intend to overcome a new problem on their own, please look into the lab.
