Urban public spaces are designed to be spaces that many people would find comfortable. Public open spaces, plazas, and parks serve as urban voids and are important for enhancing the landscape and providing places for people to work and rest. These spaces are a combination of common solutions that have been cultivated with the development of the city and are comfortable for all people.

In recent years, however, the concept of “sensory diversity” has been gaining popularity. The way people perceive space, such as light and sound, varies from person to person, and there are people who find spaces created with an average sense distressing. The purpose of this study is to consider inclusive design spaces where sensory minorities feel as comfortable as the majority.

In this study, as a basic research on inclusive space design, we surveyed the sensory reality of urban open spaces using Esri’s ArcGIS Survey123 to evaluate sound, landscape, and sense of oppression, and to record the overall evaluation and components of the space. It was found that the comfort level of the space, which is considered comfortable by many people, varies depending on the area, components, and their arrangement. However, the evaluation may change depending on changes in traffic volume due to events and physical condition. Therefore, it is necessary to consider how to respond to the environmental and physical changes that occur from day to day. It is also necessary to consider a solution to the possible contradiction of fixed sensation caused by designing with the commonalities obtained from this survey.
At present, the number of surveys is small and lacks universality to consider inclusive space design. Future issues are how to survey environmental and physical changes to make the survey method more accurate, and how to share and promote the survey method.
