Bridging Personal Adaptations to Urban Landscape Design
This paper describes how affective engineering approaches contribute to urban design methods for street and urban landscapes. I focus on (1) differences attributed to individualism of the English and the Japanese in urban landscapes, (2) differences between information and the environment and the current information environment, and (3) introduction of Symbiosis Communicator for Advanced and Preserved Environment (SCAPE), the design support system that includes Kansei, knowledge, and augmented media. A case study highlights a landscape designed in a resident participation project in Chiba, Japan. I conclude that SCAPE may help with designs that promote local diversity and resident participation.
