Message from the President
The origins of Mitsubishi Jisho Sekkei reach back to 1890 and the establishment of the Marunouchi Architectural Office, which was founded by the Mitsubishi Company to develop a business center for modern Japan in the Marunouchi district of Tokyo. In the 125 years since then, we have been involved as an integrated urban and architectural design firm in many epoch-making projects, offering services that range from urban and project planning to architectural design, interior design, and consulting, in response to the requirements of our customers and the aspirations of society. After decades as the in-house design organization of Mitsubishi Estate Company, we became an independent design firm in 2001 and are now active not only in Japan but throughout Asia, including China, Korea, Singapore, and Vietnam.
In the 21st century, architecture and the city will be expected to contribute to the realization of a low-carbon society that coexists with nature and to provide safety, security, and a highly livable environment in addition to functionality and efficiency. Since the Great East Japan Earthquake, diversification of energy sources and business continuity planning have emerged as important new challenges. The development of information and communications technology will have a great impact on cites and architecture, together with demographic changes such as the declining birth rate and aging of society.
In this era of dramatic change, we are constantly striving to offer better designs, better technology, and better proposals. By engaging in a continuous dialog with our customers, we are working to help build a better society.
We look forward to your continued support and guidance.
Mitsubishi Jisho Sekkei Inc.
President & Chief Executive Officer
