    Earthquake and Structural Dynamics Subarea

    Professor MIYAMOTO Yuji   Associate Professor KAWABE Hidenori
    We aim at improving earthquake-resistant performance of buildings. Our research topics are seismic performance of wooden structures, base isolation system and soil improvement method, dynamic soil-structure interaction and earthquake ground motion prediction.

    Concrete Structure Subarea

    Associate Professor SANADA Yasushi   Assistant Professor SUZUKI Suguru
    Our research group mainly studies seismic performance of concrete building structures: reinforced concrete, prestressed concrete, steel-concrete composite, and masonry through experimental, analytical, and theoretical approaches. Research interests also cover design methodology for new construction, seismic retrofit for substandard existing buildings, and field investigation on earthquake damage.

    Steel Structures Subarea

    Professor TADA Motohide   Associate Professor KUWAHARA Susumu   Assistant Professor KIM Jin Woo
    We conduct research on the mechanical property of materials, members and joints and on the theory of seismic design, forcussed on steel structures.

    Architectural and Urban Environmental Design Subarea

    Professor SAGARA Kazunobu
    Our lab takes two major approaches to attain sustainability of human living space with studies of:
    1) the urban energy system and the environmental control system to promote energy conservation to achieve the efficient architectural environment,
    2) the urban spatial formation system and development management with the character to generate the safe and comfortable living space.

    Architectural Planning, Philosophy of Architecture, Town-Planning, Exercise on Architectural Design Subarea

    Professor KITA Michihiro   Associate Professor MATSUBARA Shigeki   Assistant Professor SHIMODA Motoki
    Theme
     1.Planning theory of architectural space
     2.Study of architecture and urban by theory of man-environment

     5.Ecological geometry of the architecture and the urban design
     6.Archieving and reconstructing of Senri New town
     7.Environmental design for the eldelry, handicapped people and children
     8.Suggestion of architecture and infrastructure in age of shrinking cross-sectional method of planning, built environment, structure and civil engineering

    Architectural and Urban Ergonomics Subarea

    Professor YOKOTA Takashi   Associate Professor IIDA Tadasu   Assistant Professor ITAMI Koji
    We clarify the law of relation between the characteristic of architecture space or urban space, and the rule or behavior of human.
    The result will be returned to the plan of architecture design, urban design, plan of community facilities, disaster prevention safety program, etc.

    Architectural and Urban Environmental Engineering Subarea

    Professor YAMANAKA Toshio   Associate Professor KOTANI Hisashi   Assistant Professor MOMOI Yoshihisa
    We are dealing with bulding environment like heat, air, light, and sound from the viewpoint of utilization of natural energy, energy saving, and designing occupied spaces of comfort and health.
    Our research field is spreading from Human to Building and they are categorized as follows
    1) Environmental Psychology and Physiology
    2) Built Environment Engineering
    3) Building Services

    Architectural Morphology Subarea

    Professor ABE Hirokazu   Associate Professor YASUFUKU Kensuke
    Our lab is named “Architectural Morphology and Cyber Community Division,” since it processes “the optimization of project management for built environment and architectural design” as its theme for research activities.
