The future vision of the Asian cities should not be the clones of the
existing Western mega-cities anymore. A new paradigm of Asian unique
theory of Architecture and Sustainable Urban Design should be seriously
pursued and implemented now. We have set up a Research Institute of
Asian Architcture and Urbanism (RIAAU) in Meiji university, which will
act as a platform of a wider discussion and realistic projects by the
interested academic parties and institutional organizations in the world.
