[Basics in Architectural Design 2 / Year 1]
Students learn the basics of architectural design and develop the ability to plan and construct spaces to meet requirements such as usage, site, scale, and relationships. Lectures, assignments, presentations, and reviews are all conducted in English with the goal of equipping students with the abilities needed to succeed in a wide range of roles, both in Japan and overseas.

Students create collages that place foreign objects in the landscape, such as a giant spoon in a classroom or a ruler filling a bathroom, then develop these collages into spatial artworks.This helps students acquire the ability to resize the scale of an object in their mind as well as develop skills such as imagination and planning.
Students work on assignments under a variety of conditions and learn the basics of design, developing their ability to come up with new ideas as they pursue new forms of architecture.There are also classes where students learn practical skills in English.
Students are challenged to develop their vision for society, including the Kyoto of the future, new architecture, and the landscape of daily life.Students acquire the ability to design architecture that is in touch with its human users and their everyday lives.
Students are split into groups, each led by a faculty member who is an architect, where they engage in deeper learning in similar environments to real architecture studios.We also offer the opportunity for students to have their work reviewed by prominent architects.
Students continue their studies in a studio environment.Using the knowledge, skills, and imagination they have cultivated over the previous four years, they engage in their graduation work to propose, as architects, a vision for the future of society and the way we live.
The Kyumei-kan is the dedicated studio for the Architecture Course,featuring a complete range of equipment for processing essential architectural design materials such as wood, metal, and resin, enabling students to construct architectural models, furniture, and other items.
The workshop is filled with drawings and models for an atmosphere similar to that of an architectural office.
