Town planning of Gulf region becoming model of all over Japan
As for the Koto City, Gulf region in particular rapidly develops, how do you arrest for specialist in town planning?I performed town planning practically and was doing study to make development and methodology of new technique, but we accumulated, and book provided investigation with title called "the making of Tokyo Gulf region studies" in 2018 as it began from place that knew town planning and community improvement yellowtail.
We wrote there, but as most are reclaimed land after modern times and new land, in Gulf region, history is particularly shallow in Tokyo, and it is thought that there are few traditional thing and cultural things. But it is important area that supports development of Tokyo even if, in fact, Gulf region turns the modernization and development of Edo, Tokyo in land which we supported in the future.
For example, it was energy base that supported postwar Japanese economy that there were shipyard and ironworks from prewar days when Toyosu, Koto-ku with Shibaura Institute of Technology dug into history, and thermal power station or gas plant operated as coal Wharf was made in postwar period.
Shibaura Institute of Technology Toyosu campus which Shimura drew. "Sketching is basic of town planning. Saying there is a lot of interesting discovery by looking at town well; as for saying is; Shimura. In the case of business trip, we seem to bring sketchbook.
Ariake in particular rapidly develops in Koto City recently.Large commercial facilities open in Ariake in this April, and inhabitants increase, and it makes residents' association and tries hard, but it will be Toyosu that it is the sample.
Past community was neighborhood unit. In that, neighborly relations remain in Fukagawa district, but, in Gulf region, units of neighborhood are different. As tower apartment is the situation built more and more, we talk in a way called "community improvement" unlike conventional community, but are relationship of people who are global not only Gulf region.
There is the Internet, too, and, in the present world, globalization advances more and more. We think that it is Gulf region in all over Japan that becomes model in thinking about the making of global community while being local. As Shibaura Institute of Technology becomes super global university, too, and there are a lot of foreign students, and there are many people of foreign resident in Gulf region, too.
To intention global as for the town planning
Is it that global intention is important to community?So. But it was community that had trouble with town planning most, and Toyosu was traditional closed before, too. Many researchers of town planning say, too, but we age more and more, and population decreases when we will not make open community from now on. Therefore we continued saying that then we were wrong all the time. It is "Toyosu district canal renaissance meeting" to have been turning point. This meeting performs activity to create town planning utilized waterside and local bustle and charm. Not only inhabitants but also company and school participate and think that all Toyosu is near. It becomes one by holding various events of waterside including "ship cafe" and "picture in watercolors Festival", and there is being connected naturally.
Toyosu changes now particularly thinks that Toyosu Shopping Association of mall is really special and is completely open outside. We take in thing taken in more and more and develop.
Students of Shimura laboratory acted as guide of ship at event that Toyosu district canal renaissance meeting hosted.
As for the town planning, connection with people and person is important as well as scenery.After all, it is human being base. But we advance to direction of systematization to quantify properly now, and to evaluate as human connection is invisible thing.
For example, it is adopted currently in MLIT, and smart city plan is carried out in Toyosu, and we have you call out to Shibaura Institute of Technology, and it is to member. We accumulate congestion reducing and mobility of Toyosu Station, share cycle, health of people for data and of course perform that we data-process in IOT (Internet of Things) performed worldwide. This is already something like fate, and it is Toyosu in Gulf region that new thing enters.
But there is slightly scary mask, too, and do data do town well as expected? We think probably because it is that it is really good to promote efficiency if we think about connection between people. We cannot see, and there is rather positive side, too.
Students and Sunamachi mall in spirit!
Is there town planning activity concerned with in Koto City now?We join the making of city planning of Kitasuna as adviser in ward. Kitasuna is crowd city area with famous Sunamachi Ginza Shopping Street. Besides, other than Toyosu, Fukagawa, Kameido, we are concerned with veranda tree planting of CIG vision promotion campaign.
Students are concerned with Sunamachi Ginza Shopping Street led by graduate student as Shimura laboratory from 2018, too. There is shop saying croquette 50 yen at mall where nostalgia of Showa remains and is amused by students. Road expansion or cancellation of dead-end way are themes for city planning, but road expansion is difficult in Sunamachi Ginza Shopping Street and thinks that I should not open easily. Those miscellaneous atmospheres are lost. Therefore, at first, it is talked about the underground of telephone pole becoming.
As course of Kameido Culture Center which acted as lecturer "will become supporter of the town of Kameido", we were born, and "tortoise sputum" introduces 915 famous places of Kameido in photograph and information sentence. List price 600 yen (tax-included). Inquiry to Kameido Culture Center. TEL.03(5626) 2125
How is it going to unfold in future?After holding cheap candy shop event which students planned in vacant land of Sunamachi Ginza Shopping Street, many children did last year. It is mall with spirit in ward, but aging of tenant shiya shopper for rent is outstanding recently.
We prepared base into space store, and various problems were found in place that received advice and opinion from shopkeeper and shopper when we did. It is the next step to think about utilization of vacant land in 2020 while maintaining aliveness of Sunamachi Ginza Shopping Street.
We want to put aim in 3-4 years if possible, but time suffers from town planning for a long time. It is steady work. Community leading to global wants to study town planning to become base from now on.
