The Shimizu Institute of Technology, an urban research center was planned for the purpose of realizing next-generation, environmentally friendly architecture. In designing this building, the set area of the environment was expanded from a single building to the surrounding natural environment with the theme of ecosystem restoration through biotopes. Stage I construction work of this building was completed in October 2003, and Stage II construction work ended in April 2006. Even today, this research center collects data and exchanges information with neighboring communities and organizations and aims to be a building that continues to coexist and interact with the surrounding environment.
