​FIELD WORK BASED ARCHITECTURE

We carry out fieldwork in Japan and abroad, sharing time and space with people who actually live.

​In fieldwork, we gather all our physical strength and sensibility. It is considerably hard activity. However, things can not normally be well done, even if we have done so hard. We can't manage the knowledge we've learned and the skill so well. Common sense, which we thought ordinary, will be deeply shaken. The reality that people live will demonstrate the deep reality of life as the essence of architecture for you.

Facing such a reality, things may seem to be only rubbish,  no matter how you can design cool on a PC or you obtain full of the knowledge from the textbook. However, on the other hand, we can develop a practical capability by confronting reality, by experiencing such a reality.

​​

Based on the idea, we do fieldwork on an annual basis. Field work is essential for all members of the laboratory. Field work is the methodology that we can do dialog with reality.
