Sustainable Design Camp


Development of Chikuhi Line, The Academic City of Kyushu University




Dates: Aug.2 Friday - Aug.9 Friday


Venue: Kyushu University Ito Campus, Graduate School of Human-Environment Studies


Participating Universities: Kyushu University, Texas A&M University, Chinese Culture University,


Tongji University, Pusan National University, Tianjin University, National Taiwan Normal University




In 2019, Kyushu University relocated its large campuses that were dispersed in Fukuoka

city, to the new ITO campus constructed in Itoshima City and Nishi ward of Fukuoka City.

Our new campus and the community aroundKyudaigakkentoshi” station has been rapidly

developing but estimated to take another 10 years to complete the development.




This workshop will develop an urban design proposal for the area between JR (Japan Railways)

Chikuhi Line and National Highway Route 202. The proposal will be based on the current city

planning master plan of Fukuoka City and that of Itoshima City and will focus on the residential

environment of faculty and students, and the living environment of the new development areas.

The proposals need to evaluate, the environmental performance of development and the sustainability

of the development process by using CASBEE (Comprehensive Assessment System for Built

Environment Efficiency). The urban design proposals will be developed for several blocks of land

as shown in the image. Multidisciplinary student teams from planning, environment, structural

engineering, and landscape design disciplines will work on designated site in the exercise.
