A study on “Architectural product design”
“Architectural product design” is a design theory that we consider environment from relations between objects and spaces. So far, they tend to think like this: A city contains architectures, architectures contain interiors, and interiors contain furniture. However when we grasp anew the environment with humans, it reveals that a city exist between architectures and interiors exist between furniture. Therefore I determined Mobile architecture and Architectural furniture in the Architectural product design theory. The former is architecture that transforms environment into new one, and the latter is furniture that creates cozy space.
