This photo contest aims at ranking pictures of urban residential facades of Nezu, Tokyo, according to the participants’ perception of one particular aspect: the domestic character of facades.

So, you should rate a house as highly domestic if you can feel well the lives of its residents.

Should you find hard to imagine the residents’ lives, then rate the house with low domesticity.

What is this contest for?
This poll is conducted as one part of a master thesis. The research for the thesis operates by puting people impressions (from poll) against quantitative measurements (from data collection on site and analysis). The study focuses on the perceived domesticity of facades, as it is considered a defining characteristic of Nezu precinct, and correlates it to a measure of the visual permeability of facades.
