沿道囲み型住宅の面的展開による都市空間形成 : 住宅地開発事業における設計指針の策定と運用 URBAN DESIGN OF HOUSING BLOCKS WITH STREET WALL AND COURTYARD : Case study on making and use of design guidelines in a residential development project
A proper type of building is essential to create a good urban form. Perimeter-shape blocks have been accepted in Western cities. Despite the general quality as urban architecture, they have never been common in Japanese cities partly because they face other than south and stand adjacent streets. The weakness can be overcome and turned to be valuable quality by cooperative design of buildings, streets and blocks. The case is on Makuhari Baytown, a newly developed 8900-unit residential district in Chiba coastal area, which completed urban quarters of housing blocks with street wall and courtyard. This paper discusses the practice of block architecture based on the Design Guidelines.
