Article
Full-text available
As an answer to new challenges concerning the role of the architect in future societies, a new approach to the teaching of technological and environmental design was developed by an interdisciplinary team of academics, involving a reconsideration of the basic concepts and strategies in architectural design and its interaction both with natural and...
Article
Full-text available
A thorough understanding of the elements that affect both the acoustics of spaces designed for jazz music genre and its perception by the listeners is studied. The subjective evaluation experiment at a first stage sought the parameters that affect a jazz audience's perception and at a second stage the extraction of a smaller number of factors which...
Article
Subjective evaluation experiments were carried out in underground train stations of the new ' Metro ' network in Athens. Thermal and visual environmental comfort, were explored. A wide range of ordinary passengers and young students were used as assessors. The rating scales were of the bipolar semantic type. Factor analysis of the raw scale judgmen...
Article
Measurements of environmental comfort in underground train stations in Athens showed that noise levels exceeded standard recommended values in all stations tested. Environmentally designed stations, exhibited smooth variation in their lighting levels, between surface space and underground; they were also, found to mitigate thermal extremities of th...
Article
Full-text available
Subjective evaluation experiments of noise were carried out at underground train stations in Athens, with ordinary passengers as assessors, and employing, for the first time, bipolar semantic rating scales previously justified experimentally. Factor analysis of the raw-scale judgments produced three independent subjective factors, namely FATIGUE IN...
Article
Subjective acoustic evaluation experiments were carried out at live concerts in concert halls with ordinary concert-goers as listeners, and employing bipolar semantic rating scales previously justified experimentally. Factor analysis of the raw scale judgements produced four independent subjective factors, namely BODY (full-bodied, full, voluminous...
Article
For subjective and objective measurements carried out in two concert halls, a correlation analysis identified relationships between subjective acoustic factors obtained at live concerts with ordinary concert-goers, and measured physical room acoustic criteria. The subjective factor BODY correlated with the low frequency 80 ms early-to-late sound in...
Article

In this research the stations of the new subway in Athens are studied as transition spaces between indoors and outdoors, as well as surface and underground uses. The importance of transition spaces has been recognized through architectural research for many years, as they form a link between interior and exterior, public and private domains, and as...
