Course Description

We are now strongly required to extend the design object from the artifact environment to man-environment system in the field of architecture, city, environment, and landscape. It is not enough to construct the general theory of design separated from specific design fields, and we have to develop “Man-environment System Design Theory” to organize design objects and design methods, because the feeling and knowledge on design object have a great influence on design process. In this lecture, we explain design theories and design methods from the multiple viewpoints such as architectural and urban planning & design, landscape design, history and design, social system engineering, and environmental engineering. Moreover we will try to illustrate some advanced design projects as case studies, together with the designers.
