Abstract

Recently in Japan, streetscapes have been changing by repeated deregulations and redevelopments. In this paper, the desirable building forms and facades in Nihonbashi is examined through experiments using the VR system. Firstly the changes of impression in three streetscapes whose buildings forms and height are different are investigated. Secondly, the difference in impression of facades in the cases they are seen in streetscapes or seen individually is examined. Thirdly analysing the correlation of physical components and unique facades, the relation between attractiveness of streetscape and building forms and facades is clarified. From these results, way of design to create lively, emotional and unique streetscape in Nihonbashi is suggested.
