New architecture and environment are created from the fusion of arts and science
The study of architecture is both scientific and humanistic in nature, and a well-rounded curriculum provides students with ways to be a part of the world of architecture. Kanto Gakuin University’s College of Architecture and Environmental Design has a curriculum frame focusing on two axes – one being the time continuum examining architecture from yesterday’s past through tomorrow’s future and the other being environment. With five course areas for specialization and a new state-of-the-art sustainable building for optimal learning, the College of Architecture and Environmental Design is dedicated to educating students to creatively and comprehensively meet the needs of society through architecture.
Design / Engineering × architecture / Environment
The College of Architecture and Environmental Design is based on the ideas of “Design and Engineering” and “Architecture and Environment”, challenging students to discover “Architecture and Environment” through various angles of education and research.
Learning in a state-of-the-art building
Studying architecture, students must gain knowledge about design, construction, materials, environment and facilities. Our students study in our state-of-the-art sustainable building, which is in and of itself educational material as the facilities are open for all to see. This building’s design has incorporated many sustainable features – such as louvers, double-skinned siding and state-of-the-art air conditioning. With creatively integrated elements, students can effectively study and understand the original role of design with architecture.
