Is it possible to enrich the lives of people in the future with the natural environment that have been abandoned? The site is a village at the foot of Tanzawa mountains that surrounding Hadano basin.In this proposal, I reconsidered the relationship between people and the spring water, which is a resource of this basin and has lost its value rapidly due to modernization. By planning spaces of activities connecting the lives and water along waterways, the homogenized scene of this village will be updated.
