Design procedure applying theory of temporal and spatial environment
Cerebral hemisphere specialization in the human brain may play an important role for the independent effects of temporal and spatial factors on subjective preference of the sound field. The scale values of subjective preference of the sound field and the visual field have been described by the temporal and spatial factors [Ando, Auditory and Visual Sensations, Springer-Verlag, New York, in print]. Accordingly, the theory of environmental planning incorporating the temporal and spatial values for the left and right cerebral hemispheres, respectively, has been proposed by blending the built environment and nature [Ando, theory of temporal and spatial environmental design in McGraw-Hill Yearbook of Science & Technology 2009, McGraw-Hill New York, 2009]. In this theory, three stages of human life (body, mind and creation based on individual personality) in the temporal design are treated. In the present paper, we shall discuss design procedure in application of the theory of environment, in which distinct temporal periods of the brain activities as well as the environment including those of cosmos, and distinct spatial ranks are taken into consideration. In design process, we exemplify acoustic environment. For the third stage of human life, which has not discussed previously, each element of the matrix consisting of the distinct temporal period and the spatial ranks is demonstrated.
Key words: cerebral hemisphere specialization, distinct periods, distinct space, and design procedure
