A Study on the Representations of Housings in Magazines - Focused on Comparison of the Form and Content of the Texts of Architectural Magazines and Women's Magazines -
Woo, Shin-Koo ; Jung, Soon-Won ;
Journal of the Korean housing association, volume 18, issue 1, 2007, Pages 1~10
This study aims to examine the way in which magazines represent housings, since magazines are one of major channel to connect individual houses with the public including professionals and the mass as well. Not only the professional architectural magazine but also women's magazine produce discourses which exercise huge influences on the public's understanding of the housings. After examining the different ways of representing housings in the houses related articles of architectural magazine and women's magazine, serious discrepancies have been noticed in both form and content of the text. In representing housings, women's magazine uses headlines and standfirsts with various modifiers to enhance the chance of interventions of the magazine/journalists. Focusing of the interests upon residents and architects, women's magazines force the reader to look at the housings through the frame of social status and celebrity of the residents and architects marginalizing actual houses. On the other hand, architectural magazines adopt externalized and objective way of representation using minimum layout elements following relatively uniform editing format. The abstract, rigid and masculine way of representation in the architectural magazines endow the published housings with the masculine and normative senses which can be seen as some sorts of aura which obstruct easy access to the housings themselves.

Journal of the Korean housing association, volume 18, issue 1, 2007, Pages 11~18
At the economical crisis of Korea in 1997, self-determined price for apartment and the revision increasing the ratio of residential area for mixed-use residential building were introduced to activate the construction industry, which causes construction companies to build super high rise apartment discriminative and high class orientated. This study aims to classify the super high rise building which is planned to build or built recently and to analyze the architectural characteristics. The objects are 288 unit households in 26 apartment complexes higher than twenty five story since 1998. As a result, super high rise building comparing with existing apartments were being varied in plan types of main building and unit household and in construction types. As for the plan, the number of walls having opening to outdoor were increased and it is considered that high rise building can take advantage of a view, lighting and sunshine. The location of living room that used to be in the center of unit in existing apartment was moved freely without rule.

Jun, Nam-Il ; Yang, Se-Hwa ; Hong, Hyung-Ock ; Sohn, Sei-Kwan ; Eun, Nan-Soon ;
Journal of the Korean housing association, volume 18, issue 1, 2007, Pages 19~26
The purpose of this study was to fine the changes in lavatory/bathroom and daily lives to clarify the modernization process of the housing through everyday affairs and adjustment behaviors after the period of opening the port with microscopic perspectives. For the purpose, reviews were focused on hygiene and cleanliness in lavatory/bathroom and the changes in such areas. Secondly, how the process of conflict and settlement due to such changes had been approached since modernization was studied. Research method used were literature review and field study. The results of the study were as the follows: From the perspective of 'hygiene' and 'cleanliness', which were the main characteristics of modernization, the lavatory/bathroom culture in traditional Korean housing might be considered very unsanitary and despicable. The actual problems encountered by the inhabitants, however, might be less significant than those discovered by the pioneers at that time. Despite such reality, housing adjustments through renovations of the bathrooms and lavatories by some classes implied the need for housing, which had been inhibited in themselves. Also it was found that the family conflicts due to cultural and life style differences existed in each time period.

Journal of the Korean housing association, volume 18, issue 1, 2007, Pages 27~34
The purpose of this study is to examine the characteristics of the plan of fishing village house in the Shikoku district. The research was carried out by field survey and measurement of the traditional house and street system in Higashimachi area of Tomoura. The results of this study are as follows. The traditional house of Higashimachi area is to be taking the plan of Machiya form that is the residence form of a city without being related a fishing village. And the street system is as orderly comparatively as a city. This is not the thing as that is surprised when we think the fact that Higashimachi area has maintained close relation historically with Kyoto, Osaka, etc. However, as for the house of Higashimachi area, the scale is smaller in comparison with Machiya, there is a fundamental difference in terms of the house for the exclusive use of residence. Machiya is the dual constitution of business space and life space. To it the house of Higashimachi area is doing the unitary constitution. Mise is the original opening device (a kind of the front door fitting) of traditional house of Higashimachi area and has the functions that complement narrow space and of offer community space. Finally, the traditional house in this area is equipped with all the residence functions of necessary minimums, although the scale residence is small. It is said that this is the case of a 'small residence' in a Japanese residence.

Lim, Mann-Taek ; Kwon, Chang-Yong ; Kim, Hyun-Tae ;
Journal of the Korean housing association, volume 18, issue 1, 2007, Pages 35~42
This study aims at examining the actual conditions of lighting environment and the consciousness and responses of residents with the living room of apartment house, grasping the problems of existing lighting methods, offering the lighting environment design standard in harmony with the various demands of residents, functions of living room space, life in living room and interior decoration and then pursuing the comfortable living environment. As the scope and methods of research for these, existing research methods are examined through the consideration of preceding researches and the basic outline of this research is constructed. Questionnaire survey is conducted with six apartment complexes including Kumho district, Munhung district, Sangmu district, Unnam district, Ilkok district and Chumdan district, the problems and improvements of lighting environment conditions are examined, conception and selection of lighting equipment design image are made, lighting equipment design of living room is suggested and the expected effects of lighting equipment ordering method are arranged as follows. As a result of examining and analyzing the lighting environment of living room in existing apartment houses, it is known that the conditions of existing lighting environment considered uniform lighting plan for functional sides of each room which didn't consider the various living behaviors and preference of residents and while the degree of interior decoration design is actually positive. Accordingly it seems that the lighting equipment ordering which considers the various preferences of residents is applied as the means for comfortable lighting environment, the interior environmental mood will be greatly improved.

Journal of the Korean housing association, volume 18, issue 1, 2007, Pages 43~51
This study examines and analyzes view hindrance factors of high-storied apartment houses at small town like 'Eup' where county office locates and it is found that hindrance factors include designation of residential area and height, length and form of main building. On recognition of view, most subjects of research considered high-storied apartment houses hindered urban view and its regulation is needed. Apartment houses at small cities become main factors of hindering urban view because they were located randomly regardless of scale of city and surrounding situation, but there is no measure to control it. Accordingly, view control through enaction of regulations is urgently needed with establishment of guidelines such as height of large buildings including high-storied apartment houses, length of main building, location and regulation of exterior design.
A Research on the Uses of Storytelling Approach for Architecture
Yoon, Ki-Byung ;
Journal of the Korean housing association, volume 18, issue 1, 2007, Pages 53~60
Storytelling approach is the way to formulate and solve problems using stories. Story is a means to understand and react everyday life that can be regarded as multi-dimensional problems. The approach becomes popular in various fields in conjunction with digital technology. In particular, it is used to solve problems in relation to whole context. In design, storytelling approach is used to clarify design constraints. It can be used to clarify and communicate thoughts for design artifacts, and to understand how the artifacts might be used in particular circumstances. In particular, the approach is useful to use under uncertain circumstances. In architecture, storytelling approach can be used in the area of design generation, design critique and capturing design knowledge. In design generation, it can be used to describe and formulate design experiences rather than simple designing artifacts. The approach formalizes design based on stories of user experiences. Digital technology such as virtual reality can be used to experience designed spaces for design modifications. In design critique area, it can be used to fill uncertain facts for historical buildings as welt as different from present status. Such stories can be used to build digital modeling and used to open criticism. Stories can be used to formalize knowledge in architectural domain as a form of implicit knowledge for certain projects. In architecture, it often is required to design types of environment never experienced before as well as to accomodate fast changing technologies. Storytelling methodology can be used as a method to cope with uncertainty and complexity in design requirements along with accumulating design knowledge.

Moon, Ji-Won ; Ha, Jae-Myung ;
Journal of the Korean housing association, volume 18, issue 1, 2007, Pages 83~93
Following the previous ones, this study is intended to explore methods of qualitative assessment on the view from apartment units. It first complemented and analyzed the attributes of landscape elements and then set up questionnaire items based on these attributes to identify the tendencies in apartment inhabitants' recognition of landscape elements, and then conducted a preference assessment on the test cases sampled on the basis of picture and other data collected in the previous studies to identify the characteristics of the preference for the view from apartment units according to landscape elements. Consequently, the following results have been derived. First, the landscape elements seen from apartment units may be classified into a total of sixteen categories, and the overall ratio of natural elements to artificial ones is shown to be approximately one to three. Second, it is also shown that apartment dwellers tend to prefer natural landscape elements over artificial ones, and the preferences for the distance to and location of landscape elements exhibit certain variance depending on the type of the elements. Third, the analysis of the preference for landscape elements has revealed that the types of landscape elements, the make-up and diversity of landscape elements, and the perceived distance to landscape elements as well as the resultant feeling of openness all affect the preference tendencies.

Choi, Jung-Shin ;
Journal of the Korean housing association, volume 18, issue 1, 2007, Pages 131~139
The aim of this paper is to find out different preference of common spaces and shared activities in senior cohousing community between regions in Korea: Seoul and other cities. Social survey was conducted nationwide and the respondents were 50s only, since they are the generation who will face to elderly housing subject within 10 years in turbulent Korean society. Collected data, about 1000, were analyzed by SPSS program using frequency, percentage, and Chi-square test. In summary, respondents mostly would like to move to senior cohousing on circumstance when they remain alone without big difference between regions. Loneliness and housekeeping were considered as the most difficult issues for the elderly to manage by themselves. Among common spaces, exercise room was the most preferred space to meeting room and kitchen. Exercise room was more preferred in Seoul than in other cities, on the contrary meeting room was evidently less preferred in other cities than in Seoul. Regarding shared activities, resident meeting, gardening, and common meal were revealed as less preferred activities than hobby exercise and tea meeting. As a conclusion, I would like to propose that a big common living room is better to be designed for meeting room cum dining and gathering room with flexibility in order to give residents chances to know each other more often. And since common space and shared activity show different preferences by regions, those are to be designed and planned reflecting region's different circumstance.

In this research, to develope wooden house model with post & beam structure which is commensurate with domestic environment, we analyzed the size and module of a unit space and space organization of existing habitation, then, based on the result, we tried to suggest general wood house modules. For this, we investigated 98 floor plans for 30 pyeong apartment in Seoul, Gyounggi-do, Gwangju, and Jeolla-do. The results are showed as follows. 1) It has shown that 7 posts distances are available in 2 bay floor plan type - 3.0 m, 3.3 m, 3.6 m, 3.9 m, 4.2 m, 4.5 m, and 4.8 m. 2) It has shown that 8 posts distances are available in 3 bay floor plan type - 3.0 m, 3.3 m, 3.6 m, 3.9 m, 4.2 m, 4.5 m, 4.8 m, and 5.1 m. It was concluded as follows, applying the standard of regulations of horizontal modular coordination design, from
the standard of modular coordination design in architecture(KSF 1525)
. 1) The available widths are 3.0 m, 3.3 m, 3.6 m, 4.2 m, and 4.8 m, and the available depths are 3.0 m, 3.3 m, 3.6 m, and 4.2 m. 2) To guarantee a space through post module of a room combination, we can use a module of 3.6 m, 4.2 m, 4.8 m except 3.0 m, 3.3 m among available modules. The module investigated in post & beam structure wooden house is applied in basic 6 floor plans as follows. 1) When organize the room on the basis of tile module of 3.6 m, 4.2 m, it was possible to organize the floor plan. 2) After arranging main room, making practical application of variableness which is advantage of post & beam structure, putting to practical use of extra space that becomes the combination of atypical room such as kitchen, dining room, and bathroom, it was possible to organize the floor plan of the residence. 3) It is possible to organize whole rooms through the plan module from 3.6 m to 4.2 m, that decides the floor plan of a wooden house.
