A Study on the Improvement of The Down Town Residential Tendency for ESSD -The Case of Teagu City-
Journal of the Korean housing association, volume 11, issue 2, 2000, Pages 1~12
Down-town community is an essential element for ESSD. But the population of down-town has been decreased since 1990's. Therefore this study is about how to improve the down-town residential tendency through the civic research, examination of related policies and legal system. And the result is as follows. First, Taegu has lots of problems as a residential space, that are caused by bad residential environment. They also, however, represent the validity of arrangement of down-town community and we could find the possibility for development. Second, Japan perceived the importance of down-town community and a great deal of effort was done to save residential space with various programs. But it is ignored in Korea for economic reason. Therefore we need to change our view of Down-town residence. Third, the role of government, people and specialist are important for the improvement of Down-town community. 1) The central government and ask its responsibility. 2) The local government makes the best use of present laws and is required of management with elasticity in favor of the regional character. And it need to set the future image and aim of the city. The aim should be the one that meets the practical need of down-town community and suitable programs need to be activated. 3) Generally, the citizens who are living in a region know it's problems the best. So the citizens themselves can advertise their Down-town community and participate to solve its problems 4) Down-town community requires a differential policy from general residence. Thus the professional have duty for the development of proper know-hows for Down-town community.
Emotionally Charged Field Dynamics of Lived Space
Journal of the Korean housing association, volume 11, issue 2, 2000, Pages 13~23
Lived space, i.e. space as we experience it in our mundane life, does not exist independently of material objects: it is defined, delimited and made sensible by them. Concrete spaces so manifest are not sterile and neutral homogeneous voids. Not only do they interact with material objects but also influence our feelings and behaviour, constituting emotionally charged fields. This field dynamics of space is readily observed in the phenomenon of place as well as in the etymology and usage of the word 'place'. Each space is pervaded by a particular mood or atmosphere in accordance with its size and shape as well as with the perceptual properties of its constituent objects. Moreover, within each space the atmosphere also changes depending on the location. Space then can be thought of as a nonhomogeneous field of emotional energy. The fact that one is attracted to some places and repulsed by others may be described as one's being subject to invisible forces of pulls and pushes, attractions and repulsions. Out spatial environment is therefore a field of forces of varying directions and magnitudes.
Physical Living Environment for the Elderly with Dementia-Type Problems -Focused on the Welfare Facilities for the Elderly-
Journal of the Korean housing association, volume 11, issue 2, 2000, Pages 25~36
The purpose of this study were; 1) to describe the present situations of dementia-related characteristics in the welfare for the elderly; 2) to explain the perception of the staffs on the effect of the features in physical living environment and to identify the variables influencing this perception; and 3) to examine the present provisions of the features in physical living environment and their effects on making a therapeutic environment. Questionnaires by 122 staffs in the welfare facilities for the elderly were used as a final sample of the analysis. Data were collected using a self-administered survey. The results of the study provided the information on the major symptoms or behaviors of demented elderly with respect to frequencies of occurances and caring and the way of manipulating the physical environment to slow down the progression of the disease and making the demented elderly live independently as much as possible to achieve their quality of life.
The analysis of elderly using behavior and propinquity of neighborhood facilities
Journal of the Korean housing association, volume 11, issue 2, 2000, Pages 37~49
The purpose of this study was to examine elderly using behavior and propinquity of neighborhood facilities and to analyze the relationship of propinquity and using behavior of each neighborhood facility. The results of the study indicated that the elderly are using more frequently and living more close to leisure facility such as sports/health facility, hobby/education facility, and entertainment facility. Age and health status of the elderly were the important factors on the use and propinquity of neighborhood facilities. On the other hand, the elderly having higher education and economic status were more likely to use and live close to leisure facilities. For the elderly, the need of physical propinquity to neighborhood facilities and providing information about the facility location were required. For the mid-aged people, the education about leisure culture of the later-hood years were suggested since the use of neighborhood facility is depending on one's habit.
The Model of Housing Consumption Behavior of Rental Households
Journal of the Korean housing association, volume 11, issue 2, 2000, Pages 51~62
Despite the massive housing production since the 1990's, housing affordability of rental households has not been substantially improved. The objective of this study was to investigate housing consumption behavior of rental households. Numerous literatures pertaining to the subject were thoroughly reviewed. SPSS PC+ for window was used to analyze the data collected to Korea Research Institute for Human Settlements(KRIHS) in 1999. The major findings are highlited as follows: The results shows a statistically significant difference in housing consumption behavior according to household income, the age of householder, number of family. And estimation of the willingness to pay revealed that low income families are influenced on the rental price and the income elasticity of demand is high.
A Laboratory Study on the suitable standard height for the lavatory in public spaces
Journal of the Korean housing association, volume 11, issue 2, 2000, Pages 63~73
The purpose of this study was to find a suitable standard height of the lavatory in public spaces through the review of relevant regulations, questionnaire survey, lab works, and experiment to measure lavatory heights. The results of the study were as follows: First, the heights of the current public lavatory were ranged from 68cm to 89cm, and the heights to the faucet were from 71cm to 91cm. The recent lavatory was more likely to be higher in heights. Secondly, the suitable height for public lavatory was ranged from 55% to 65% of the heights of the participants put on shoes. Thirdly, 90cm lavatory in height was considered to be more suitable to use for the majority than was 83cm lavatory. Fourth, the author suggest that the suitable y(lavatory height)=77.818 + 0.117x(put on shoes heights). This study suggested that adopting 95% range, the most suitable height of public lavatory is more than 90cm high for the people whose heights are more than 150cm.
Spatial layouts and function of the chinese private house in south-east area
Journal of the Korean housing association, volume 11, issue 2, 2000, Pages 75~83
The purpose of this study was to analyze spatial characteristics of Chinese traditional residents. This study was carried out in order to have a clear understanding of how cultures of neighboring countries influence Korean residential history and to grasp an objective view on characteristics of Korean houses by comparing and contrasting the characteristics of Chinese residents. This survey was conducted by observing, interviewing, taking pictures and analyzing the pictures that were taken on the real spot. Additional data were collected by participating the seminars of Chinese experts on the traditional house. The spatial layouts and function of Chinese traditional house were analyzed by using pictures, sketches and data which were gathered by interviewing and observing. The shape of Chinese traditional unit plans of houses is basically linear. By repeating this linear shape in the south.north and east.west side, various shapes are formed as an outcome. tangwu and woshi, the living space of Chinese traditional house are strictly hierarchical.
A Study of Utilization of Semi-public Space of Street for the Betterment in Life Environment
Journal of the Korean housing association, volume 11, issue 2, 2000, Pages 85~95
This study tries to promote an effective use of semi-public space of urban street in social point of view. The main results are follows. First, semi-public space is occupied by private users and it makes urban landscape unrecoverable. The real problem is that people do not know the space is for public use rather than pure private use. Second, the standard of semi-public space requirement should be changed from floor space to lot area. In addition, the standard should apply to buildings on an area less than a legal standard. Third, some ways of attaining the semi-public space in relation with adjacent lots should be introduced in the case of urban redevelopment nad living condition improvement projects.
The Study on Outdoor Space Alteration of Reconstruction Apartment
Journal of the Korean housing association, volume 11, issue 2, 2000, Pages 97~106
In this study, we analyze space alternation, which is shown pre-development and post-development in the reconstruction apartment. We point out problems in terms of the city and dwelling environment, and in looking for drawing up a plan for improvement as well. As a result of our research, we offer some important observations and conclusions. Ourdoor space of the site after the reconstruction caused inconvenience to the residents due to the plan for high-storeys, high-density, And the building shape and arrangement provide changeable conditions form line figures to variable figures due to courtyard patterns. The courtyard space changes into a parking area ; therefore the outdoor site gives worse circumstances.
A Study on the Relation between the Exterior Environmental Factors and Sensibility Responses in Apartment Housing Estates
Journal of the Korean housing association, volume 11, issue 2, 2000, Pages 107~116
The purpose of this study is to investigate the relation between the exterior environmental factors and sensibility responses in apartment housing estates. The finding of the study may be summerized as follow: 1) The method of analysis was that the adequacy of 214 sensibility vocabularies primarily drawn were analyzed by the evaluation group through questionnaire. As a result of factor analysis on them, 36 sensibility vocabularies were finally drawn and used as a tool for evaluation. 2) 22 elements were drawn as physical elements that shows sensibility responses according to residential complexes and classified roughly into five factors; the architectural factor, the rest space, the horizontal system, the design factor, and the annexed facilities. 3) The average score for sensibility items by complexes suggested that the sensibility contents would vary depending on the physical conditions of facilities by complexes. 4) It was shown that the percentages of sensibility responses by physical structural elements were 50.7% for the rest space, 24.1% for the design factor, 13.7% for the architectural factor, 8.1% for the annexed facilities, and 3.2% for the horizontal system. 5) The analysis of relation between the physical elements and the sensibility contents showed that the sensibility contents such as 'emotions', 'comfortable', 'luxury', 'symbolic', and 'intimate', had a positive relation with the physical elements such as the entrance of a complex, design element, artistic structures, and kindergarten facilities but a negative relation with the physical elements such as the shape of buildings, walkways, and separate garbage collection yards.
A Study on the Management of Precipitation for the Environmental Friendly Housing Complex -focused on the Contemporary Planning and Example Performed by Berlin-
Journal of the Korean housing association, volume 11, issue 2, 2000, Pages 117~127
As urbanization proceeds and therefore impervious surface coverage increases, the amount of runoff goes up and the hydrological cycle is also changed. The surface retention and interception of precipitation in the urban area are reduced because the surface area is now slick and solid. Increasing runoff in building areas of the city causes flood damage, water pollution, reduction of ground water recharge, and the other environmental problems. This paper investigates various techniques of increasing rates in a site development performed by Berlin. The techniques offered in this paper improve sit water balance, and thus keep the site ecosystem much healthier.

A Study on General Management of Multi-family Housing Manager
Journal of the Korean housing association, volume 11, issue 2, 2000, Pages 139~148
The purpose of this paper was to find the apartment manager's general work, problems and opinion. 35 managers of multi-family housing which located in Kwangmyung city were interviewed during July, 1999. Questionnaire was consisted of questions which manager's opinion about their job boundaries. At the managerial standpoint, there was a perceived gap in expectation level about the manager's role between the manager and residents in multi-family housing complexes. The fact that the lack of interpersonal communication caused this gap was founded. Managerial rules and guidelines should be described in detail and be known by all residents. Specified guideline should be suggested regarding the boundaries of the manager's job, responsibilities and rights, and extra work beyond the management job in order to prevent conflicts or problems between the managing body and the residents. There guidelines also play an important role in solving the conflicts and problems in multi-family housing.
