In this paper, problems of visual elements in urban areas are examined for optimum conditions, based on the results of The investigation conducted at Tenjin Mall in Fukuoka, Japan. Urban areas contain concentrated and disordered visual elements for walkers and drivers. It is preferable for safe driving to decrease the rate of information processing, while it is supposed that the more information is provided for people to assimilate, the more interest people feel in walking. The paper concludes by presenting hypothetical theories on control methods for visual elements, taking into account the relationships with human perception and other factors. (TRRL)
