Kinkyo (parents and children who live in the same neighborhood): Reconsidering the Relationship between “Family” and “House”
A family does not always live in one house. The word ‘family’ is not given a legal definition and we tend to use the concept of household although it is different from the general concept of family.
In this lecture, I am going to reconsider the relationship between “family” and “house” by examining one example of kinkyo as it shows remarkable difference between our general ideas and the actual situation.

- The purpose of my studies is to create an environment in which humans are able to have richer relationship and I examine how human beings perceive or recognize the environment. My research focuses on the formation of a theory on architectural, interior and environmental designs based on actual observation and examination of human behavior and way of life in their environment. To summarize, I am interested in these concepts: personal space, houses, hospital rooms, offices and public spaces.
