This paper discusses the appropriate design for super high-rise housing. The population of Tokyo, which had been decreasing, began increasing again in 1997. High-rise and super high-rise housing, which allow people to live in urbanized areas, are some of the factors behind this population growth. Super high-rise housing is a new living environment, one that is cross-sectional rather than planar. Creating these residential spaces requires a design technique incorporating a multiplicity of layers on the premises, as well as input from the prospective residents. This paper describes one part of the design technique for super high-rise housing. The research was conducted at Ohkawabata River City 21, a model of super high-rise urban housing. The research included a questionnaire, aggregative analysis theory, and aggregate curve. From the above research, the attributions of environmental cognition and life territory were determined, particularly those regarding the floors of residents of super high rise towers. This paper provides the appropriate attribution of the data for the design technique.
