Research Topic

Urban Planning and Community Design Based on Knowledge-Creating Industrial Milieu

In my research, I analyze the behavior of knowledge creating businesses and its impact on urban space. The aim of my research is to present a new methodology of urban planning and community development based on understandings of behavior of businesses in post-industrial society. In particular, I focus on the following three points: (1) Location of knowledge-creating industries (ICT, animation, design, etc.), (2) Relationship between industrial activities and the physical and social environment of cities, (3) Placemaking to support innovation.
