Projects in 2010

Musashino and Tama Project
@ @Based on the research results achieved until 2009, this project will develop activities centering on three major research activities in 2010: gCooperative Project with Hino Cityh, gSurvey Researchh and gHino-related Activitiesh.
@ @For gCooperative Project with Hino Cityh, we will publish a visual book on water town Hino in the summer of 2010. We will also prepare series of lectures on community development, and research meetings on Hino (gHino-jukuh). For gSurvey Researchh of Musashino and Tama, we will conduct varieties of research activities based on the specialized fields of our members focusing on Kokubunji cliff line, and in cooperation with surrounding cities and districts. Summarizing previous research results, we will explore approaches to propose concrete measures.
Tokyo City Core Project
@ @Based on the research results accumulated until 2009, this project aims to deepen and develop individual projects including outer moat, Kanda-gawa, Nihonbashi-gawa, Kamejima-gawa, and ocean front areas. As a whole, it will develop wide visions for regional regeneration starting from waterfronts of city core.
@ @Outer Moat Project is part of gChiyoda-gakuh survey research, to the theme of g350 Yearsf Historical Heritage: Regeneration Design and Improvement Strategy of Outer Moath. In addition, this project will propose ghistorical/ecological corridorh based on environmental/cultural infrastructures as cores to link urban waterfronts, and other measures concerning landscape problems including outdoor advertisements around outer moat.
@ Nihonbashi-gawa Project aims to build database of riverfronts, and examine restoration plans for historical urban spaces, based on previous survey researches of historical transformation of landscapes along the Nihonbashi-gawa.@
@ Kanda-gawa Project will work together with community groups: for example, a group which conceives a new concept gConfucian Routeh from Ochanomizu through Iidabashi. Kamejima-gawa Project will propose directions for waterfront regeneration in cooperation with groups of local architects.
@ Oceanfront Project aims to review changes of land use patterns in urban ocean front areas of the modern era in relation to industrial activities, grasp recent shift over environmental industries and other movements for environmental regeneration through social backgrounds including citizensf movements. It also will develop survey researches for realignment of oceanfront areas in large cities, especially of existing industrial areas.
The Cooperative Project with Hino City
@ @Based on the research results achieved through the continuous efforts made by gHino Irrigation Channel Regeneration Working Grouph until 2008, we have launched three yearsf cooperative project with Hino City in 2009.
This project aims to offer concrete suggestions for consistent community development based on long-term visions for Hino, and jointly runs gRegional Revitalization Project for Water Town Hinoh with Hino City.
@ @1) Publication of a book, gWater Town Hino: Values of Agricultural Landscapes (u…‚Ì‹½E“ú–ì^”_‚ ‚é•—Œi‚̉¿’l‚Æ‚»‚ÌŒp³)(Tentative Title)h.
2) Generating interests on Hino through gHino-juku Bh research meetings based on the book above.
3) Creating structure for conservation of irrigation channels and farmlands among citizens (Hino-juku A)
4) Proposing a concept, ghistorical/ecological corridorh, for conservation and restoration of historical environment and cultural resources.
Following the steps as described above, the project will also implement various supportive activities for community development, and examine measures based on a collaborative relationship among private industry, government and academia.
gChiyoda-gakuh (Study on Chiyoda-ku)
@ @gChiyoda-gakuh project aims to research and study various events related to Chiyoda-ku.
This project will explore the theme gWaterfront Regeneration of Tokyo City Core Centering on Outer Moath, for urban regeneration from waterfronts based on history and ecology. Then it will conduct research study to propose gNetwork Plan of Historical/Ecological Corridorsh.
@ @Chiyoda-gaku has been based on research results accumulated through 2007 to 2009, conducted with project name, 350 Yearsf Historical Heritage: Regeneration Design and Improvement Strategy of Outer Moat (1), (2) and (3), and project leader, Hidenobu Jinnai. The goal of this study was to analyze and propose visions for regeneration of outer moat as historic site and its surrounding areas (gouter moat areah) from the viewpoints of history, ecology and landscape, regenerate water system of entire Tokyo area, and propose ghistorical/ecological corridorh.
@ From 2010, we have conducted researches on Kanda-gawa and Nihongashi-gawa within the watershed area from Iidabashi to Sumida-gawa, to get an entire view of outer moat. The final goal of this project is to propose gVision for Networks of Historical/Ecological Corridorsh as a measure of city core regeneration. The concrete research steps are as below:
1) Research and analysis on historical, ecological and cultural resources.
2) Research and analysis on how waterfront spaces are utilized, and distribution of green areas.
3) Digitalization of research data, and consideration of transformation processes of waterfront spaces.
4) Research and analysis on purification of water quality and water cycle (including improvement of polluted soil, measures for purification of water quality using civil engineering materials)
5) Information sharing with researchers, administration, and civil groups on major issues regarding regeneration from outer moat, Kanda-gawa through Nihonashi-gawa.
@ We will deepen our study to propose concrete visions for historical/ecological corridor based on improvement measures of environmental/cultural infrastructures. Furthermore, we are seeking to propose regeneration of Tokyo city core and reorganization of Tokyo area.
