Accordingly, have studied on the current situation of domestic housing adaptation projects to find out their problems and limits. Also studied on foreign housing support systems find out the operation system and organization factors which can be utilized when the housing adaptation support system is introduced. As this study has focused on the systematic support such as operation system in housing adaptation but not handled on the physical solutions such as the standard and method of housing adaptation, it has some limits as far as the comprehensive support system is concerned.

This study purposes to present the improvement on the index by analyzing concretely the certification and evaluation index and the actual certification acquisition focusing on the buildings acquiring the barrier-free (BF) certification. So, after analyzing the screening results of the buildings acquiring the BF certification and then grasping the general application level based on the above analysis, this study tries to present the improvement on the BF certification index by analyzing the detailed applications of the BF certification-acquired buildings and then grasping the problems on the evaluation index of the current certification system. It was analyzed that the items which applied the BF construction method generalized to the common buildings through the Act on the Promotion of Convenience in medium facilities and the items with higher distribution points were shown as high in terms of points and the acquired point level of items which influenced by the shape and condition of side and land to defile the appearance of buildings were low.

Journal of The Korea Institute of Healthcare Architecture, volume 18, issue 2, 2012, Pages 65~76
South Korea's rapid ageing and the fast increase of nuclear families have led to the social isolation of the elderly and generational conflicts. In order to solve these social problems, this study explores the ways in which different generations can communicate and interact more actively. We surveyed 110 social workers who run generation-integrated programs at community centers in Gyeonggi province, and also examined the spatial design of the four age-integrated community centers and analysed its effect on the intergenerational exchange. We propose several suggestions for intergenerational exchange programs and effective space planning to facilitate intergenerational interactions in multi-generational community centers. To develop intergenerational interactions and keep their constant relationship, the users of community centers should be the core of generation-integrated programs which can facilitate the intergenerational exchange and interactions.

This study is to understand the architectural types and characteristics of the medical facilities during ancient period. The study is based on the research of the medical and architectural history. The medical or healthcare facilities are influenced by their social, cultural and conceptual idea, especially how they think about 'disease', 'cure' and the 'medicine'. As the results of the examination of this study can be summarized as followings. Firstly, Ancient medical facilities are classified into four types according to the ideas of 'disease' and 'cure' ; 1) God oriented facility 2) health welfare facility 3) treatment oriented facility 4) practice & educational facility.
