Hirohisa Ito

Field of expertise: History of cities, history of architecture, preservation/restoration planning
Courses taught: Descriptive Geometry, Architectural Design B , History of Japanese Architecture , History of Modern Architecture, History of City, Architectural Design and Drawing, Design and Exercise of Division 1

Professor Ito was born in 1958 in Mie Prefecture. (He is a typical Aquarius with blood type B.) He is working on preservation and restoration plans for historical cities and buildings based on empirical research on the history of cities and architecture in Japan and East Asia. More than famous buildings and "fashionable" streetscapes, he prefers architecture for the common man and "slightly grubby" town environments. When he has time, he likes to walk through towns holding an old map. He has quite a unique obsession with the history of cities. His hobby is archery. He participated in the sport for 7 years in high school and university, but he hasn't touched the bow recently.
