My college graduate studies at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln was in the field of urban planning and I also have a Bachelor of Architecture in Japan. Since I have started studying architecture, I have had interest in analyzing the various characteristics of an urban area. Therefore, I have focused on the Urban Design since I was senior, especially, I have become interested in utilization of spaces.
