For this outreach program with the Danville region, multidisciplinary teams of architecture, landscape architecture, and urban and regional planning students collaborated on proposals for ecologically sustainable developments that would connect downtown urban spaces with the Vermilion River and offer places where people could interact with nature more directly. Community members offered input on their priorities as teams began drafting their ideas, and final presentations were given to an audience that included faculty members, classmates, and Mayor Scott Eisenhauer of Danville.
Cooking classes offered at Japan House emphasize that a beautiful presentation is integral to a successful dish.

Each summer Japan House hosts Matsuri, a festival highlighting culture, food, arts, and traditions plus—of course—fun for everyone.
In a landscape architecture class led by Stephen Sears for the FAA Summer Intensive, students sketched and collected images for design collages.
