Project Outline

This complex is located inside the Waseda University Honjo Campus, which is surrounded by a rich natural environment. With facilities for joint research between graduate school research labs and private companies, it was built specifically for environment- and information-related research. The aim in doing so was to encourage "universities" and "local industry" to collaborate in creating new university-spawned industries. As sustainable architecture, moreover, we aimed for buildings that would create little environmental burden and would be in harmony with the natural environment. We are now engaged in various initiatives to this end throughout the complex.

These cases are described based on assessment results obtained using CASBEE.
CASBEE is a method for rating the environmental performance of buildings using Building Environmental Efficiency (BEE) as an indicator, which is based on the results of separate scores obtained for Q-1~Q-3 (Quality) and LR-1~LR-3 (Load Reduction).
