Sacred Shrine Forest
LANDSCAPE ECOLOGICAL DESIGN AND PLANNING RESEARCH LABORATORY, fujita naoko lab., is a piece of the faculty of Art and Design at the University of Tsukuba, JAPAN. We research on landscape structures and processes of natural environments, cultures, and human societies from the perspective of landscape ecology. Our laboratory emphasis on producing results as design such as proposing practical measures for regional planning and land use designs. We seek to answer the question “What is the ideal ecological design for future generations?”
Our main research subject is the relationships among the natural environment, culture, and people within their local climate on the basis of landscape ecology and nature-based solutions.
