ASAI Tokyo 2011


International Presentation and Symposium

Trend of Architectural Visualization in the World Presentation


Since its foundation in 1899, Takenaka Corporation has accumulated 112 years of history as a construction company, consistently adhering to its design/built philosophy. Within Takenaka’s long history, rendering specialists emerged in Osaka in 1951 as predecessors of the current Presentation Group. Since then, the group of rendering specialists have developed and practiced their presentation methods which accurately suit the requirements of the new era.

At present, the Group has expanded to Tokyo, Nagoya, Hiroshima and Kyushu regions in Japan, and produces a wide range of presentation related outputs such as perspectives, animations, VR, DTP, models, etc. Takenaka’s Presentation Group joined ASAI in 1993, and has won a number of awards since then.

At this Symposium, Takenaka’s Presentation Group is planning to explain how it is engaged in the field of architecture, and to introduce the detailed process of how it “realizes imaginations into physical forms,” along with people involved in the architecture business. We are looking forward to your participation.
