According to the technical advice from the government of Japan, continuous walking distance tends to range from 500 m to 700 m and the distance tends to be shortened as people get older. In the literature, it was found that (1) 65% of elderly pers...

Japanese cities have alleys (roads narrower than 4 meters) that are densely lined with small houses on both sides. These alleys serve as places for private activities that support local communities and facilitate transportation. Alleys are charact...

Urban blocks and road networks are the basic spatial elements which compose urban form. Since urban blocks are the geometrical inverse of road networks, urban block patterns are regarded as the results of plane tessellations by road networks. In r...

The relation of distribution function of lot frontages and building density is theoretically discussed by making a mathematical model. We model the distribution of lot frontages as that of the length of Poisson Voronoi cells on a perimeter of a cl...

Mean lot depth is one of the important indices for specifying the typical lot in a district. Data of lots depth is, however, impossible to obtain directly. Hence, we define lot depth as the ratio of lot area to lot frontage. If the hypothesis hold...
