Community Lifescapes
A Discussion with the Goto Lab of Waseda University, Branden Born, Jim Diers, and Jeff Hou

The Goto Lab, led by Professor Haruhiko GOTO of Waseda University, has been a pioneer in urban and regional planning in Japan. In the historic city of Nara, their most recent work has focused on community-engaged medical care, an urgent need in the face of the aging society in Japan. From September 27 to October 2, the team led by Prof. Goto will visit Seattle to explore projects focusing on intergenerational and intercultural engagement. On October 1, the team will make a presentation of their work and engage in a discussion with UW faculty and students. Prof. Goto is also the Vice President of Waseda University, a past President of the City Planning Institute of Japan, and the current Vice President of Architectural Institute of Japan.
