In late 2020, a brand-new landmark exchange hub will open in the heart of Ookayama Campus. Hisao & Hiroko Taki Plaza (known as “Taki Plaza”) is a 4-floor landmark designed by Kengo Kuma and Associates. Taki Plaza will be a new platform for Tokyo Tech students to materialize their ideas, regardless of their backgrounds. The building’s concept of “openness” embraces the seamless connection between Japanese and international students, and the facility welcomes all — especially those from under-represented groups.

Tokyo Tech Grand Prix is a two-day-event that serves mainly as a platform for students to be more involved in shaping our campus and its newest feature — Taki Plaza. Groups will be decided by the organizer, Tokyo Tech Grand Prix, and ideas involving the management or utilization of Taki Plaza are expected from each group. Ideas will be assessed and those who meet the standards will be rewarded by each judge. Despite its competition-like format, this event is an opportunity for students to exchange (React), pitch, and materialize (Act) their ideas. Hence, the “React, Pitch, Act” concept is the main theme of Tokyo Tech Grand Prix II.
