Outline Activities
[Social Innovation Design Lab]
Our current research interests are in following areas (but not limited to);
-Studies to elucidate a dynamic mechanism of human relationships which structure a society, focusing on human behavior and design process.
For the purpose above;
-Studies to capture and visualize human factors dynamically and quantitatively. Engineering approach is especially welcomed.
Based on the knowledge obtained from the studies above;
-Studies to develop methodologies to design and manage human/organizational relationships for well-being (incl. industrial relationships)
For the purpose above (our ultimate aim is to contribute to well-being society, though),
-We conduct a lot of practical design projects focusing on human relationships and have unique opportunities and research circumstances for them.

1. Akane MATSUMAE, Susumu MATSUMAE, Yukari NAGAI, Dynamic Relationship Design of Knowledge Co-Creating Cluster: Traditional Japanese Architectural Industry, Journal of SN Applied Sciences (Springer Nature), 10.1007/s42452-020-2209-2, 2, 3, 443, 2020.04, Increased global mobility led by remarkable developments and the extension of public infrastructure has brought about not only the possibility of further conventional static relationship design but the importance of dynamic relationship design as well. Operating on the assumption that this catalytic environmental change will occur in the form of increased mobility, every type of organization— regardless of the industrial sector, size, or profit status— is faced with the need to design and manage this connected society, newly dynamic environment.
Considering the social environment above, this study aims to develop a methodology to design and manage an innovation ecosystem which then generates a sustainable and autonomously collaborative relationships as the inevitably required first phase of organization emergence. How can a dynamic relationship as a knowledge co-creating subjectivity be formed among the organizations?
The authors introduced research methodology of dynamics, referring to knowledge creation theory; 1) proposing a dynamic system model simplifying research objects, 2) conducting the cases based on the proposed model, 3) performing a theoretical analysis on observed phenomena, and 4) engaging in discussion on improvements, or further development of the original model based on the findings.
In this study, the authors visualized the relations among co-creation, intersubjectivity, con-text, and boundary object in a dynamic model, and described the organizational emergence of knowledge-creating clusters using the dynamic model. This study contributes to the social shift in a contrasting approach, from the management of human well-doing for an efficient social system to the dynamic relationship design for human well-being..

Akane MATSUMAE and Yukari NAGAI, The Function of Co-Creation in Dynamic Mechanism of Intersubjectivity Formation among Individuals in Various Contexts, The 15th International Design Conference (DESIGN 2018), 2018.05, This study aims to elucidate the dynamic mechanism of formation process of intersubjectivity among individuals in various contexts: how a design process affects formation of intersubjectivity among individuals involved and also their co-creativity, motivation toward the realization of the co-designed concept. The authors have defined key terms and proposed methodologies to evaluate the fundamental factors of co-creation dynamics, intersubjectivity, context, and co-creativity. Then to examine them, an experimental study was conducted concerning the type of collaborative design process..
