The era of globalization has ushered in dramatic changes in the past decade covering a wide range of distinct political, economic and cultural trends whereby people adapt their houses to suit their needs and desires. This paper discusses the process of change analytically, emphasizing the importance of understanding the transformation of Lao traditional houses and its impact factors to the transformation and adaptation to suit with globalization trend, and conservation of the characteristics of traditional houses. This study takes place in Luangprabang, an ancient city of Lao PDR, which was designated as a world heritage city in 1995 as it is rich with diverse, tangible and intangible values. Five cases of traditional house in Luangprabang are examined to understand their transformation through time, by analyzing the basic spatial formation, components and elements, especially to find out the impact factors to such transformation. The study revealed that the transformation of the traditional house is subject to not just one single factor, but to a number of factors, where globalization, regulation, economy, and social aspect factors play a prime role and are the root for all these changes. The case study also indicates that these changes are connected to the benefits of income generation as a survival strategy for the low and middle-income people in Luangprabang as well as the housing demands. In the transition period a new residential type appeared accordingly, in which living spaces were categorized according to their general functions. There was a harmony between people's needs and the physical characteristics of the house.

Single household is expected to be the typical form of future Korean elderly household from reduction of household size and rapid growth of the elderly. As Japanese solve the same problem with Senior Sharehouse, a case study on Senior Sharehouse in japan focused on the Spatial Arrangement and Spatial Composition could suggest an potential applications in Korea. In conclusion, compare to Korea, the Senior Sharehouse in Japan supplies additional
more space to support the physical movement of the elderly and to help the elderly to solve various functions at one space. The independence and privacy of residents are also assured by supplying single occupancy. Space analysis shows that public space is as spacious (47.3~55%) as personal space. The result of the Space analysis suggests that the sharehouse provides rational ratio of space to assure residents' independence. It was supposed that the center type would be the main stream of the Spatial Arrangement for sharehouse considering its characteristic of sharing space. But, the Senior Sharehouse in Japan prefers corner type. The guarantee of personal space is being considered as a important characteristic. As a result of case analysis, Senior Sharehouse can be a proper type of house for single elderly household and present study can be used for the baseline data to solve the residence problem for single elderly household in Korea.

DOI : 10.6107/JKHA.2015.26.2.021
The purpose of this paper is to estimate and deduct appropriate Hanok type within Suwon Hwaseong Fortress in which formula Hanok type has not remained. To do so, urban change according to chronology is analyzed and architectural aspect of transition is collected. By using geographic information in Suwon Hwaseong Fortress, present urban structural density, status of architecture and chronological aspect of transition in one-story buildings is surveyed. Through these data, appropriate Hanok form and density to the area is suggested. As a result, Hanok with two or more stories is economically suitable because its average plottage is excessively narrow. And back trowelling is desirable to construct walls in some concentrated areas with Hanok through arrangement of construction. Also in the other building sites, Hanoks are formed by a standard for separation to the property line. However it is necessary that exist standard about separation of property line is institutionally alleviated.

The 'pathways' in the Deteriorated Residential Area is the valuable place which represents the history of the community. The 'pathways' is the physical boundary which connects individual environment of private residential area to public environment and which has value as a medium for the definite site for regeneration of Deteriorated Residential Area. Thus, the 'pathways' is considered as the perfect material for the public design for spatial culture to regenerate the Deteriorated Residential Area. However, the most of the public design projects utilize the 'pathways' fragmentarily, there are few systematic studies based on the attribute of the Deteriorated Residential Area. The purpose of this study is the consideration on the attributes of the 'pathways', the detection of the spatial characteristics to find application of the 'pathways', and the cultivation of the baseline data for further research for the spatial nature of the Deteriorated Residential Area. For this study, theoretical consideration is practiced in advance to analyze the meaning of the 'pathways' and Deteriorated Residential Area, the case research is performed using design elements as the analytic frame, and the approach is inferred for systematic public design based on the above result. The objects of case research were chosen among the latest projects implemented in the Deteriorated Residential Area whose subject was 'pathways' and which showed successful result. The characteristics of them were investigated and the details were examined through the homepages of the projects, the reports related to the projects, research material, and interview with the people involved. And to conclude, 'pathways' represents the composition of contents, the space of movement, the formation of community, the landscape design, and the participatory design in the Deteriorated Residential Area. The 'pathways' also finds the proper secondary cultural material for the spatial characteristics and can create the space for the various movements, stay, and communication using the characteristics of movements. The narrow and closed space should be utilized actively to be altered into beautiful space and the Deteriorated Residential Area should be regenerated into coexistent design where people share their lives through sharing spaces.

As the Korean construction market in the apartment housing has changed to a housing consumer focused market, interest and importance on efficient use and management on existing buildings has increased rather than demand for new buildings. Interest of housing consumers on apartment house quality has increased in this market paradigm, and this spontaneously is connected to quality flaw related defect disputes and lawsuits that the importance of defect diagnosis has continuously increased. This defect diagnosis is directly connected to maintenance charges in defect dispute and lawsuit processes that rather objective and highly credible progress of duty is required. However, most defect diagnosis firms today that progress defect diagnosis are using different diagnosis methods and depend on the experience of experienced professionals that there is no standardized defect diagnosis process. Therefore, the purpose of this study is to provide common defect diagnosis process model for defect diagnosis firms utilizing the BPMN (Business Process Modeling Notation) modeling method. It is expected that this will contribute to professional and reliable task performances of concerned defect diagnosis workers. Furthermore, it is expected that design lawsuit damage will be substantially reduced by standardizing defect diagnosis processes.
A Study of the Planning Characteristics of Neowa Houses Applicable in Contemporary Housing Plans
Yun, Jieheerah ;
Journal of the Korean housing association, volume 26, issue 2, 2015, Pages 81~88
DOI : 10.6107/JKHA.2015.26.2.081
The purpose of this study was to investigate the possibility of applying the planning characteristics of Neowa houses to contemporary residential structures. Contrary to the popular assumption that traditional Korean houses have decentralized plans, local building traditions observed in Neowa houses show that the diversity among hanoks allows the incorporation of traditional spatial organization into the contemporary residences. By analyzing the spatial organization of Neowa houses, three advantageous planning characteristics were found. First, the presence of indoor wooden floors (maru or daechung) as well as outdoor wooden floors in Neowa houses is practical for Korea's weather marked by humid summers and icy winters. Secondly, the internal orientation of space in Neowa houses is more appropriate in the contemporary context of a highly urbanized society emphasizing family privacy. Thirdly, the flexibility and interchangeability of interior elements can be applied to improve efficiency. By applying the aforementioned characteristics, this study suggests ways to adopt traditional features to improve contemporary residences.
Housing Pathways of Middle-class Married Women Toward Owning the First Home Through Life History
Lee, Hyunjeong ;
Journal of the Korean housing association, volume 26, issue 2, 2015, Pages 89~101
DOI : 10.6107/JKHA.2015.26.2.089
The purpose of this study is to explore the housing pathways of middle-class married women toward owning a first home. In doing so, an in-depth interview as a qualitative method was conducted, life history was utilized to track down the path to first-home owning, and all the interviews were transcribed for analysis. The research participants were well-educated middle-class full-time housewives owning a home. The findings indicated that family formation through marriage and child birth was a primary driving force to buy a home. It was shown that owning a home was perceived not just as a stepping stone for building both family wealth and social capital but as one of the most important pillars to reinforcing traditional family values. In spite of some intergenerational distinctions on the path toward home owning, commonalities across generations included that home owning was considered to be a social icon for middle-class, it became almost impossible for younger generations without parental support which stimulated the intergenerational transfer of wealth, and it was greatly determined by both family income (affordability) and home finance options(borrowing capacity). This research implies that the changing social landscape transforms the value on homeownership and could undermine the socioeconomic strengths of home owning. Nonetheless, it's of importance to strategically assist first homebuyers who are likely to be a member of middle-class.
Economic Evaluation of Underground Parking Lot PC Structural System that is Suitable for Long-Life Housing

Precast Concrete (PC) construction method can be the one that is suitable for long-life housing due to its merit in respect of maintenance and durability based on crack-free from mass production with indirect construction cost-saving-effect due to shortening construction period comparing to the conventional construction method, but it has the problem that causes the raise of direction construction costs. So, this study analyzed its economic feasibility of PC method whose maintenance and durability are excellent for underground parking lot of apartment house for accomplishing cost-saving long-life housing by applying the various structural system. In evaluation of unit module structural system, two-way PC system requires 10 to 28% more costs for frame work than RC rigid frames, and, one-way PC system 98~112%. Although it varies depending on the method, the costs are similar to RC rigid frame structure, provided a proper method is adopted. Also, Model 11, which was most economical in the evaluation, was applied to an real parking lot and about 2 to 6% of construction costs was reduced than RC rigid frames. This seems to be because, although PC system has a higher production cost, introduction of P.S (prestress) reduces member depth and, therefore, height, as well as the number of members per unit module.

Journal of the Korean housing association, volume 26, issue 2, 2015, Pages 111~119
DOI : 10.6107/JKHA.2015.26.2.111
This study aims to analyze space planning of accommodations in seven closed schools involved in experiential activity programs on Jeju Island, a famous tourist destination in Korea. The results are as follows. First, 35 schools had been closed down in Jeju between 1982 and 2015. Among them, four closed schools were sold, three are currently used by the Jeju special self-government provincial office of education, and 25 are being leased by individuals, village organizations, and other entities. However, they have not been well-operated, and so strategies for the effective management or operation of these closed schools should be developed. Second, there are distinctive differences in space planning of accommodations based on the correlation between experiential activities and the types of participants. If the experiential activity participants are mainly individuals or small groups, the closed school is likely to plan double-bed accommodations and individual bathrooms rather than large group rooms. Third, in order to operate experiential activity programs, closed schools require four different spaces for experiential activities, lodging, dining, and sanitation. The largest space available in each school building is used for experiential activities, and original classrooms are still in use. According to the standard drawing of school architecture, standard classroom size since 1997 has been
meters, and lodging rooms have mainly been re-planned based on the module of the standard-sized classroom. School cafeterias are utilized as dinning and kitchen spaces. For sanitation purposes, original school restrooms are still used by experiential program participants, while the shower rooms are newly equipped.
