Tokyo Denki University, Tokyo Senju Campus

To commemorate the 100th Anniversary of the founding of Tokyo Denki University, the Tokyo Senju Campus was established in April of 2012. Not only does the campus provide state-of-the-art facilities for the next generation, but also all future development at the Kita Senju Station East Entrance is envisioned to be centered around this new campus.
Therefore, the entire campus is planned to be open to the public, with expansive landscape full of greenery that will enhance communication and social interaction between the university and the neighboring community. The public spaces are within the ‘Agora’ located at the low-rise portion of the buildings, which surround the campus plaza. In addition to these gathering spaces, the ‘Loggia,' which faces the station plaza provides spaces for the individual, similar to what can be experienced in the historic city plazas of southern Italy.
The exterior of the buildings will reflect the diversity of the university and cityscape. The mid-rise portion will be a combination of ceramic printed glass and clear glass, while the low-rise portion will be of wood, metal, and concrete elements to produce a warm human scale. Technologically, it will be the first building in this building category to utilize a high-performance air flow curtain wall system at the east and west facades of the mid-high rise portion of the building, which will minimize the perimeter thermal load.
