    Status Quo of Evidence-Based Design Research and Its Research Trends in Korean Healthcare Architecture

    Kim Duk-Su | Kwun, Joon-Bum | 2014, 20(2) | pp.7~16 | number of Cited : 1
    Purpose: The purpose of this study is to provide understandings about EBD research trends inKorean healthcare architecture research. Method: The systematic literature review was conducted,while comparing the characteristics of research papers in Journal of Korea Institute of HealthcareArchitecture with EBD related research papers among them. Results: It is found that the differenceof research method utilized between healthcare research in general and EBD research. Specifically,a research method most utilized in general is a field study. In EBD research, however, literaturereview is most frequently used. Implications: This study can be used as a reference point for furtherdevelopment of EBD research in Korean healthcare architecture. In addition, research results canbe used as a communication tool with healthcare specialists such as doctors and consultants in ahealthcare project team. Thus, this study is anticipated to play a preliminary role for the developmentof healthcare architecture design in Korea.

    Background and Facility Characteristics of Service Attached Elderly Housing in Japan

    Kwon, Soon-Jung | Ji, Junhwan | 2014, 20(2) | pp.17~26 | number of Cited : 3
    Purpose: This study tries to explore and analyse Service Attached Elderly Housing of Japan in orderto prepare new elderly housing type effectively for aged society of Korea. Service AttachedElderly Housing was introduced in 2011 and it includes existing elderly housing of Japan suchas Designated Elderly Housing, Elderly Friendly Housing and Superior Elderly Housing. Methods:Historical transition of Japanese elderly housing and background of the introduction of ServiceAttached Elderly Housing have been reviewed first. Thereafter research team visited to 3 elderlyhousings of Japan providing elderly services such as elderly care, meal, cleaning, washing, safetycheck, entertainment, etc. Based on the literature survey and field trip, the characteristics ofService Attached Elderly Housing have been drew out. Results: As the characteristics of ServiceAttached Elderly Housing of Japan, mixed use facility, community based housing, generation mix,barrier free design, and provision of daily life service for the elderly have been identified. Implications: Not only physical consideration including Universal Design but also elderly servicessuch as elderly care, meal, housework, safety check, entertainment and so on are necessary forthe supply of elderly housing.

    A Study on Universal Design Critical Factors of the Urban Railway Station

    강병근 | 이주형 | Kim, Sang-Woon and 2other persons | 2014, 20(2) | pp.27~35 | number of Cited : 7
    Purpose: The number of the transportation poor has been steadily increased, and also the socialperspective toward the disabled has been changed. Thus, Universal Design has been needed. Inparticular, the unknown majority of the transportation poor have frequently used the urban railwayfacilities which should reflect the ideals and principles of Universal Design. However, previousresearch has not focused on the study on critical factors of Universal Design. Based on thisobservation, the present study aims to find out Universal Design critical factors of urban railwaystation. Methods: This study explores the criteria of planning Universal Design in the urban railwaystation by analyzing and comparing the similar criteria used in both domestic areas and foreigncountries. Result: Findings from this study are as follows. First, we found out the critical factors ofUniversal Design in the urban railway station by comparing and analyzing the similar criteriapreviously used. Second, this study also suggests the better directions toward the domestic criteriarelating to the urban railway system. Third, we found the need of the universal standard as wellas individually corresponding strategy. Moreover, we found the need of preparing the critical factorsfor the physical environments as well as the human service. Implications: The further research onfindings of the planning criteria will have been continued on the basis of findings of the presentstudy.

    A Study on Environment-friendliness in the Chungnam Regional Public Hospitals - Focused on the Sustainable Site and Transportation

    Yeonghwan Lim | 2014, 20(2) | pp.37~45 | number of Cited : 0
    Purpose: Numerous researches about healthcare buildings have been performed however, they weremainly focused on convenience or healing condition for medical treatments. The hospitals consumeenergy and generate CO2 as twice as the residential or commercial buildings do(Lim, et al.,2010a:154). The public regional hospitals are especially in serious conditions. They are more than20 years old in average. Energy efficiency and environmental friendliness in the public regionalhospitals are far behind ones in private sectors. Even though the ministry of health & welfare issupporting renovation of the builidngs and enhancement of the facilities every year, it is notintegrated including sustainibility. In this study, we investigates current conditions of the regionalpublic hospital in envrionment-friendly standpoint, especially focused on Chungcheong Provincearea Hospitals. Methods: we investigates current conditions of the regional public hospital inenvrionment-friendly standpoint, especially focused on Chungcheong Province area Hospitals. Thestudy was executed by qualitative and quantitative evaluations with site inspection, drawing analysisand interviews. Results: Through this study, we found that the Chungnam regional public hospitalscan be environmentally improved by management plans and programs. Implications: Based on thisanalysis, Korean Green Building Certification for healthcare facilities will be developed in near future.
