"The social concern with the dispute over high-rise buildings in the urban space has been growing again for the last several years in Japan, and there is much demand in the explanatory model for psychological influences of those buildings. This study aims to verify the validity of the ""view factor"" as the explanatory variable accounting for the oppressive feelings caused by the buildings. The result of the study shows that when the front view of one building is evaluated, the oppressive feelings can be explained by the view factor to some extent, but its aspect ratio also has an unnegligible effect. On the other hand when more than one building are adjoining each other and the subjects observe them from the acute angle, the combination of the view factor and the aspect ratio can not sufficiently explain the effect on oppressiveness. In order to apply this index to the high-rise buildings control in urban spaces, it is necessary for us to find some additional variables in future."
