In a design competition about the External design of Hachiouji Minamino City Residential Town, I supported to make the rule of the competition and the selection of the proposals. We set up the main theme,“A city with the residents’ conversations”.  The point was how each design can encourage the theme and can have an identity of the area, Hachioji. The selected plan was so good because the wide wooden deck can encourage the communication between the residents and the neighborhood and the gate design was from a hint of Hachioji fabric industry.
