Abstract: This study explores the modernization of tea packaging, departing from traditional landscape-themed illustrations to resonate with younger consumers. With a focus on the Ancient Tea-Horse Road theme and Ya’an Tibetan tea, various methodologies are employed: Literature Review: Illustration styles are analyzed across historical periods to inform modern design choices. Case Analysis: Existing tea packaging designs, particularly those targeting young consumers, and integrating elements of the Ancient Tea-Horse Road, are examined. Field Research: The historical and cultural significance of the Ancient Tea-Horse Road are investigated. Design Implementation: Computer software blended hand-drawn images with modern images. By infusing the essence of the Ancient Tea-Horse Road into Ya’an Tibetan tea packaging through modern illustrations, this study aims to create a visually appealing product that bridges tradition with contemporary aesthetics. This approach revitalizes traditional themes, enhancing product distinctiveness and market competitiveness.

Acoustic Quality of Volcanic Rock Material for Interior Space Control and Design: Evidence from Teaching Space



JDSSI 20231(3-4), 56-83; https://doi.org/10.59528/ms.jdssi2023.1231a13 - December 31, 2023

Abstract: The cognition of a good campus environment refers to the physical environment formed by planning and design, considering the function, reasonable layout and atmosphere of the space, and putting forward an implementation plan that can meet or exceed the teaching, learning and life needs of teachers and students, so that the campus has perfect overall characteristics. This paper takes university lecture halls as the research object, studies the spatial sound requirements and tests the acoustic quality control of these spaces, and attempts to explore the feasibility of using volcanic rocks as wall decoration materials. According to the characteristics and principles of sound transmission, combined with the present situation of the lecture hall and its original acoustic environment, a series of acoustic field experiments are implemented. By means of computer software simulation, the advantages of volcanic rock as wall decoration material in sound absorption effect and quality control are proved, and also its effect is better than other materials. Obviously, the computer simulation software is an applicable way in assisting the selection of interior wall decorative materials. Therefore, this study confirms the sound quality characteristics of volcanic rock materials and provides a feasible reference for those spaces requiring acoustic quality control in the future.

Abstract: As societal developments progress and perceptions shift, there is a discernible aging trend in the global population. This trend results in a growing number of elderly individuals left living alone, leading to the development of loneliness and isolation among older people, which has seriously affected their state of mind and body in their twilight years. In this study, Post-occupancy Evaluation (POE) was conducted to construct an evaluation index system based on the following standard layers: Accessibility, Security, Comfortableness, Identifiability, Convenience, Wellness and Aesthetics. The index system analyzes the suitability of elderly care in 15 villages in suburban areas of Beijing, China, and the key findings are threefold: (1) It is essential to improve the site’s defenses against particular climates according to the actual situation and enhance the comfort of the whole day and year. These are also factors that need to be considered in order to increase the motivation of older persons to use outdoor public spaces. (2) The evaluation results have been further refined and classified, unveiling four predominant concerns: Insufficient safety measures, Poor comfort, and Limited social interaction are the main factors affecting the motivation of the elderly to participate in outdoor activities. (3) After synthesizing the results of qualitative and quantitative analysis, the following conclusions were drawn: Recommendations to enhance these public spaces for the elderly in suburban villages emphasize: Reducing the safety hazards of the space, Improving the comfort of rest, relaxation, socializing, fitness, Avoiding the functional areas of motion and static influence each other, Paying attention to the healing function of the space to be effectively segregated.

Abstract: Purpose: To review and analyze the research status of the application of generative adversarial networks (GANs) in the field of architecture design. Methods: This study followed the latest PRISMA guidelines and systematically collected relevant research literature from domestic and international sources. In-depth analysis was conducted on 95 representative Chinese and English language articles. During the analysis process, three dimensions of intelligent architectural generation methods were comprehensively and deeply explored: the data application scale, algorithm type, and architectural design process. Results: (1) GANs have been applied to various processes in architectural design practice, from design generation, development, and evaluation to final solution expression; (2) GANs can be applied at different architectural scales, ranging from large-scale complex functional buildings to refined layout designs of residential units; (3) the appearance of GANs enables designers to quickly present design results at various stages, greatly improving work efficiency; and (4) at present, GANs also have many shortcomings, mainly reflected in the accuracy of the data and the usability of tools. Conclusion: Improvements in computer performance and the enrichment of data resources have promoted the widespread application of intelligent architectural generation methods. GANs have great potential in the field of architectural design and can provide a more efficient, flexible, and diverse design process. However, further research and development are needed to address the challenges and limitations of using GANs in this field.
