pose of this thesis is to show one design approach to providing more preferable housing for users in Japan. Chapter 1 gives an overview of trends in Japanese housing construction, describes user requirements, analyzes problems in a case study, and suggests fundamental principles of design to guide future design decisions. In Chapter 2, the design process is developed by resolving issues at the larger, community level and scaling down to the individual houseplan level. Chapter 3 analyzes an existing Japanese housing project chosen as a case study, and illustrates alternative solutions based on the design principles described in the preceding chapters. Finally, unresolved issues and future housing concepts are discussed in the concluding chapter.
