Re-defining Urban Public Spaces for Wellness


Chuuden Engineering Consultants is Hiroshima’s largest infrastructure developer that has provided safety, comfort, and convenience to the city. They are now looking to make wellness more accessible in the city by bringing communities and nature closer together. Working with engineering partners Sri and Ayesha, they brainstormed ways to provide access for citizens to be involved in shaping the use of urban public spaces for their wellness.


The team recognized that the public spaces that Chuuden manages may not be serving residents nor enabling their access to wellbeing in the city. Together, they brainstormed ways for residents to better connect with Ota River, which is of historical significance to the city. To help Hiroshima residents re-interpert and re-connect with their natural environments, Sri and Ayesha prototyped a sensor that detects and predicts the river’s water quality.


This project will officially run under Chuuden’s business expansion strategy. In the long-term, they are looking to involve community organizers, artists, and other partners to launch a workshop to better understand citizen needs and impressions of Hiroshima’s public spaces. In the future, they hope for the Sri and Ayesha’s portable water sensor to be distributed to citizens for them to re-discover the city’s assets in a new light.
