 September 1, 2023 

The ranking is calculated from an objective point of view, including the professional esquisse of architecture based on past statistics.​We provide multifaceted assistance such as presenting related buildings and related books, consulting suitable competitions and laboratories, and recruiting suitable companies.


We provide accurate advice based on comparative analysis based on the advice of more than 100 architects and past cases. Instead of the subjective advice of the architect, we will objectively esquish where and how to make proposals based on AI statistical data.

Rank calculation

A wide range of ranking calculations can be performed for national rankings and world rankings, from grades to successive rankings, using the scoring technology of the designer's diverse abilities. We will evaluate a wide range of abilities by calculating the ranking by ability from various viewpoints, not by calculating the ranking based on the total score.

Case presentation

We will present similar design proposals submitted in the past, existing buildings, architectural ideas, and related examples such as architectural history. By calculating similar proposals from multiple perspectives, it can stimulate the designer's creativity and be useful for brushing up the work of job hunting and graduate school exams.

​Course assistant

Broaden your career path and match suitable employment opportunities by consulting nationally and internationally on the jobs you are suitable for and laboratories conducting similar research based on the work submitted to the university. I can.
