Next 21, a residence building in Osaka, is the synthesis of an advanced research about “intelligent building”, oriented to the redesign of urban environment, with respect for energy saving and aimed to reassemble the traditional japanese social fabric.

This project is the answer to the problems of modern metropolis in Japan. Currently, the residential population of large cities in Japan is declining, but the trend in the future will involve a return to the city.

To develop a healthy urban growth is essential to create a new form of living, based on innovative concepts, such as more attention to the environment, the recovery of natural resources and the restructuring of the Japanese social structure.
