The project aims to develop a smart and ecologically sound community as a pilot project to demonstrate how a smart urban community is designed, evaluated, and implemented in Japan by incorporating experts and stakeholders in the areas of urban design and modeling, urban analytics for big data, IoT (Internet of Things) technology, smart home, smart mobility, eco urban performance evaluation, and green finance industry.
The Spring 2019 Tokyo Studio will take place in Sumida Ward. The Tokyo smart city project is an international joint effort between the Global Carbon Project (GCP), the National Institute of Environmental Studies of Japan, the Department of Urban Engineering of the University of Tokyo and the Eco Urban Lab of School of City and Regional Planning and School of Architecture at Georgia Tech. Tokyo as an urban laboratory provides a test bed of complex urban form, and agglomerations of physical, cultural and technological systems.
Masters students from Architecture, Urban Design, GIS, and City and Regional Planning programs are eligible to enroll in the studio course in Spring 2019. Students are encouraged to take GIS and visualization courses, or to have some design and visualization skills, in advance of enrolling.
