This exhibition showcases design projects by students from the Department of Architecture, Kyoto Institute of Technology. In Japan, a large number of construction projects, such as roads, dams, viaducts, tunnels, retaining walls, embankments and excavations are unfinished for different reasons. They can neither be completed nor abandoned while some remain as "oversized rubbish" after being used for a certain period.
Naming this sort of objects "Formative Heritage", we focused on finding out another way to use them instead of completing or demolishing them. Making full use of our skills in architectural and landscape design, we have come up with several ideas on how Formative Heritage can be utilized in an effective, brand-new manner.
