co+labo: Urban Architecture
Research & Design Laboratory
Keio University, Japan



Our Focus

Responding to the contemporary condition in which the roles of the expectations from architectural/urban space are becoming increasingly complex and controversial, our focus is on innovative combinations of architectural and urban design are practice and research - in particular at the methods of space creation which include creative and harmonious integration of design and diverse engineering inputs. Our microscale urban space research mediates between architectural and urban phenomena, aiming to establish an urban design method that enables empowerment of individual residents and their autonomous and interest group participation.

 

About co+labo
