Holding of a joint design workshop
Nov. 12, 2014
The workshop took a planning project for the former site of the Tsukiji Market as its theme. The students broke into eight mixed groups, and each group proposed a plan for use of the site, which is being reborn as a new international sightseeing spot in time for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. On October 3, the last day of the workshop, a meeting was held for final review of the proposals on the Nakano Campus. Each group made a 15 minute presentation of its proposal. While the workshop lasted for only a short time, it was marked by full and close communication among the participating students. At least one of them remarked that, although it was hard to get ideas across in some cases because outlooks varied somewhat with nationality, the workshop provided valuable insights into differences of conception and other items.
