The purpose of the KSC project is to develop and organize Culture and Scientific Research Districts; a group of twelve new districts in an area of approximately 15,000 hectares, where the three prefectures of Kyoto, Osaka and Nara meet. By this development method, in which the area is divided into a group of small districts, harmonization with the natural environment and the local communities is made possible. In this way a step-by-step plan of development is also realizable.
Each district will be developed and will form an autonomous city with high-level amenities and manifold functions to facilitate research and study, living, work, learning, interaction and play, by a transportation network, into an organic whole.
