Located in a suburb of Daejeon, Korea, the campus is comprised of buildings scattered throughout a lush setting of tree groves and fields. Selected from an open design competition, the scheme places the new 26,000sm building on the northern edge of a green lawn running parallel with the East Gate axis. The design brings together the fields of Computer Science and Electronic and Electrical Engineers. Rectangular boxes are stacked nine stories high and arranged around a central core of large multi-level, indoor and outdoor social spaces that enhance cross-discipline communication between both students and professors.

Located in Fukuoka City Vice city center, this Building is apartments for rent for single people.
Currently, there is no personality in architecture itself rental apartments, it is often thought to be a uniform design.
As opposed to design the architecture design uniform so far, I have the concept that you plan to have a personality in architecture itself, combines livability and design, the “architecture the sole.

When I moved to from Rome to Shanghai I noticed many environmental differences. One was the fact that when I looked out the window here, it didn’t give me the same good feeling like it usually did in Rome. It was probably a combination of the grey buildings, the immortal grey sky and the fact you couldn’t open the window due to the outside air pollution.

The city of Cartagena is full of scars that have marked its layers at varying depths (“the puff pastry city”, Carlos García Vázquez) throughout the city’s history.
And it is among these layers and between party walls where one must attempt to preserve the life of the city, through interventions involving the renovation, revitalization and regeneration of the residential urban weave, of the dwelling, which, in sum, is the use that maintains and accelerates the pace of the city.
