Abstract

To create the desired Japan 2050 future, it will be one of the most effective measures that architects and engineers can easily use the life cycle assessment (LCA) and life cycle costing (LCC) methods in the basic or schematic design phase of each building. Author has been developing the "Comprehensive Assessment System for Building Environmental Efficiency (CASBEE)", supported by the Japan Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport. In this keynote speech, several sustainable buildings designed and assessed by author to create the desired Japan 2050 future will be presented as follows: "Head office of the Institute for Global Environmental Strategies (IGES)", "Head office of the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA)", "Liberty Tower of Meiji University", "Yusuhara Town Hall".
