of Regional Design with Ecology
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 Cityh, gSurvey Researchh
and gHino-related Activitiesh.
||@For gCooperative Project with Hino Cityh, 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-jukuh). For gSurvey Researchh 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-gakuh survey research,
to the theme of g350 Yearsf Historical Heritage: Regeneration Design
and Improvement Strategy of Outer Moath. In addition, this project
will propose ghistorical/ecological corridorh 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 Routeh
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 citizensf movements. It also will develop survey researches
for realignment of oceanfront areas in large cities, especially
of existing industrial areas.
|The Cooperative Project with
||@Based on the research results achieved
through the continuous efforts made by gHino Irrigation Channel
Regeneration Working Grouph until 2008, we have launched three
yearsf 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 Hinoh
with Hino City.
||@1) Publication of a book, gWater Town Hino: Values of Agricultural
Ì½Eúì^_ éiÌ¿lÆ»Ìp³)(Tentative Title)h.
2) Generating interests on Hino through gHino-juku Bh 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 corridorh, 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-gakuh (Study on
||@gChiyoda-gakuh 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 Moath, for urban regeneration
from waterfronts based on history and ecology. Then it will conduct
research study to propose gNetwork Plan of Historical/Ecological
||@Chiyoda-gaku has been based on research results
accumulated through 2007 to 2009, conducted with project name,
350 Yearsf 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 areah) from the viewpoints of history, ecology
and landscape, regenerate water system of entire Tokyo area, and
propose ghistorical/ecological corridorh.
@ 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 Corridorsh
as a measure of city core regeneration. The concrete research steps
are as below:
1) Research and analysis on historical, ecological and cultural
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.
