  • Assessing the urban design appropriateness of xiaoqu: the case of Pujiang
           Town, Shanghai

    • Authors: Marco Capitanio
      Abstract: A liveable neighborhood is the result of a multitude of factors, actors and circumstances, pertaining, among other things, to the built-environment, the socio-political and the economic context, adjusting over time. As in Shanghai numerous new towns are being built, urbanization growth has been researched mainly from a large-scale and quantitative point of view. A discourse on liveability is a necessary step to combine a more qualitative-based approach. This paper deals with the analysis and possible improvements of Shanghai’s peripheral developments, especially focusing on the neighborhood scale in a middle-class context. A contextualization of the new towns’ inception and main issues will provide the necessary background knowledge, and specific attention will be drawn to the Chinese urban typology of the enclosed compound (xiaoqu). One case study will be analyzed—a relocation area in Pujiang Town (south)—investigated through three urban design factors: diversity of uses, walkability, and green and public space. These will highlight the crucial role of a certain mixture of uses and the need of specific architectural typologies to house them; the contradiction between sense of enclosure and social interaction; the mutating nature of public space. Following new 2016 urban guidelines promulgated by the central government, compounds are required to gradually open up their walls and fences; nevertheless the resistance of residences and historical urban models in China will constitute a challenge to the implementation of these guidelines.

  • The Study of Cultural Landscapes of Central Yakutia for the Development of
           Scientific Tourism

    • Authors: Viktoriya FILIPPOVA, Antonina SAVVINOVA, Yuri DANILOV, Sébastien GADAL, Jūratė Kamičaitytė-Virbašienė
      Abstract: In this article authors analyse natural and cultural landscapes for scientific tourism. Central Yakutia with the unique permafrost landscapes is a rich and large territory of sites of interest for the development of “scientific tourism” for explorers, researchers or eco-natural-tourists. There are three types of scientific tourism relevant for Central Yakutia: the aim of which is scientific research; the aim of which is practical training and education of students of educational institutions; the aim of which is introducing the history of scientific research, unique natural resources, historical and cultural heritage to a wide range of people. The objects of interest of scientific tourism – landscapes of Khangalassky region – are classified according the selected types of scientific tourism using methods of secondary sources analysis and field research. The study showed that scientific tourism on the territory of Central Yakutia is quite feasible and has great prospects due to the unique landscapes. It can also give impetus for the new scientific discoveries. In one of these new areas the research is being conducted within the framework of the project RSF 15-18-20047, which justifies the application of the concept of identifying the ontological characteristics of the landscapes with the use of linguistic and mental representation of it. The determination and description of cultural landscapes, collection of field materials and mapping of the cultural and landscape zoning of Khangalassky region was funded by the RSF.

  • Sustainability of Heritage Preservation in Academic Education of
           Architects in Lithuania

    • Authors: Jūratė Jurevičienė, Edita Riaubiene, Dalius Vrubliauskas
      Abstract: Research of urgent problems and new aspects of contemporary tendencies in architect education of the preservation of cultural heritage in Lithuania has been carried out by the team of Department of Architectural Fundamentals, Theory and Arts, Vilnius Gediminas Technical University. Within the framework of the "Sustainable Rehabilitation of the Historic Towns in Europe” (SURE), project funded by EU with the collaboration among the Polish, Italian, Spanish and Lithuanian counterparts, Vilnius team has performed the research on the problems in emerging tendencies in the highest education on the preservation of the cultural heritage in Lithuania. The questionnaires for the opinion pooling were sent to the selected threefold type of the recipients: educational-scientific, public-state, and private-professional (Best Practices Handbook 2017). The research of enquire reflected devastating effect of recent processes of urban planning in Lithuania in the immovable cultural heritage area: neglect of cultural landscape value in urban planning of cities, concern of identity loss and negative impact of globalization, lack of proper maintenance and use of historic buildings. Contrary to these revealed problems plea of recent international strategic documents emphasize variety of ways of contribution of historic areas in bettering of urban life. Lack of ecological approach in urban heritage planning, tension between contents of academic programs and official aims of strategic documents ratified by the State, difference in expectations of theoreticians and practicing urban planners were revealed by the results of completed research. The differences in attitudes of academicians and professionals, i.e. inadequate reflection of urban heritage in urban planning processes, shortcomings in integrating of local communities into preservation processes and academic education of architects were clearly stated. Variety of important issues in relation with protection of cultural heritage and sustainability was unveiled in academic education of architects in Lithuania. Provided questionnaires and collected results of the answers, after the completed analysis of the education programs and expert survey disclosed the shortage of ecological knowledge in the field of cultural heritage protection. Considering revealed problems and needs integration of sustainability and urban heritage preservation should be proposed as one of major target for the improvement of existing educational system of architects in Lithuania. Primarily targets to be hit by the alteration of the situation would be the reduction of the lack of ecological approach in urban heritage planning, diminished tension between contents of academic programs and official aims of strategic documents ratified by State and lowered difference in expectations among the theoreticians and practicing urban planners.

  • Evaluating Building Sustainability Literacy Level in Nigerian
           Architectural Education

    • Authors: Oluseyi Akinola Olagoke, Olusola O. Bamisile
      Abstract: Sustainability has become a qualifying factor of every human endeavour and architectural educators could simply not care less in ensuring a holistic education cleverly hinged on the tenets of both conscientious and discretionary use of the ever-depleting natural resources much of which is morally right to be left for yet many future generations. Also, since a good proportion of architecture graduates from Nigerian tertiary institutions end up as teachers in architecture departments, it becomes important to understand the level of their knowledge of the concept of building sustainability while in school as understanding how much they know could be helpful in properly positioning them to be better architectural educators. This research hence focuses on six selected departments of architecture and architectural technologies in southwest Nigeria and the aim is to establish whether the concept of sustainability is well taught and understood both by architectural educators and students. Open and close-ended questionnaires were distributed to students (young architecture graduates) and the results are analyzed using statistical tools. Consequently, findings derived from this survey are hoped to help inform a set of recommendations aimed at enhancing improved knowledge acquisition by these teaming future professionals thus ensuring a holistic and balanced training and education necessary for proper entrenchment of the much needed sustainability consciousness and awareness in Nigeria.

      Abstract: Given the climate change, the high levels of pollution nowadays and the depletion of lithographic resources, low carbon technologies for road reinforcement with low energy consumption are essential for a sustainable future. These technologies, including incorporation of nonconventional materials, such as oil sands or bituminous sands, in pavement construction and recycling techniques of the existing deteriorated pavements, represent significant methods which can be performed for a better conservation of resources, and therefore the environment. In terms of environmental indicators assessment, the results of recent research undertaken for road pavement reinforcement strategies are presented. The Global Warming Potential expressed as quantities of CO2e emissions for a road pavement incorporating various alternative materials, such as oil sand and reclaimed asphalt have been evaluated using a life cycle assessment (LCA) study performed with asPECT software. The results obtained from these studies are presented within this paper and specific recommendations with regards to various technologies usage are given. These are required for minimizing the environmental impact of transport infrastructure and thus advancing towards low carbon mobility. The paper aims to highlight the need for effective measures concerning road pavements maintenance and intervention works. These measures are intended to extend the pavements lifecycle and therefore to reduce the overall ecological impact associated with the reconstruction of the road pavement because this action is correlated with significant quantities of polluting emissions released into the atmosphere, enormous granular materials and energy consumption and thus, an exponential increase of the greenhouse effect.

  • INNOVATIVE ENERGY HARVESTING EXPOSITION PARK IN KAUNAS SCIENCE ISLAND

    • Authors: HARIHARASUBBU BALAMOORTHY, RASA APANAVICIENE
      Abstract: The paper involves utilizing the land area in the Science Island of Kaunas where a Science Museum is proposed to be constructed. The Project takes into account the surrounding areas of the museum in the Science Island for installation of micro energy harvesting structures. These structures are proposed as a part of the exterior Science Island project. This project proposes various Energy harvesting elements such as Photovoltaic dome, Photovoltaic Floors, Piezoelectric Rain Farm, Luminescent concrete roads, Wind Energy Trees and three alternative Landscape architecture layouts of those structures around the Science Island area. The paper covers the energy calculation of those micro-structures and the construction cost analysis. The energy calculations show significant role in powering up the park area in the proposed Science Island however it does not cover the main Building (with its interiors included) of the proposed Science Island’s Science museum. The paper concludes that the implementation of these innovative energy harvesting elements through means of Landscape Architecture not only enhances the aesthetic appearance of the Science Island Park but also provides alternative energy resources for electrical elements inside the park.

  • Use of Quartz Sand to Produce Low Embodied Energy and Carbon Footprint
           Plaster

    • Authors: Jiajian Chen, Pui-Lam Ng, Roman Jaskulski, Wojciech Kubissa
      Abstract: Plaster is a widely adopted material in buildings. However, since the manufacturing of cement, a common component material in plaster, involves heating limestone and emits a lot of carbon dioxide, there is inherent problem pertaining to plaster that it is associated with a large amount of embodied energy and carbon footprint. One strategy to solve the problem is to employ quartz sand, an economic and abundant natural resource, to partially replace cement for plaster production to directly reduce the embodied energy and carbon footprint. To investigate the feasibility of practical use of quartz sand in plaster and quantify the effect on reducing the embodied energy and carbon footprint, a total of 30 plaster mixes with quartz sand content varying from 0% to 20% at various water/solid ratios were produced for laboratory testing, and the embodied energy and carbon footprint of each plaster mix were quantitatively estimated. Results demonstrated that the incorporation of suitable quartz sand in plaster could improve the workability for mixing and trowelling and reduce the embodied energy and carbon footprint as well as the cost at the same time.

  • Characterization of Ternary Batched Concrete Parking Lots on the Ground
           Containing Saw Dust Ash and Egg Shell Powder

    • Authors: ALBAN CHIDIEBERE OGBONNA, ABUBAKAR MIKAILU
      Abstract: The quality of a concrete parking lots, floors or slabs is highly dependent on achieving a hard and durable surface that is flat, relatively free of cracks and at the proper grade and elevation. The properties are determined by the aggregate characteristics, cementitious materials and the mixture proportions.  Concrete industry is one of the largest consumers of natural resources due to which sustainability of concrete industry is under threat. The environmental and economic concern is the biggest challenge concrete industry is facing. This study addressed, the issues of environmental and economic concern through the use of saw dust ash and egg shell powder mixture as partial replacement of cement in concrete. Hydraulic Cement was replaced by the mixture of Saw Dust Ash and egg shell powder at 5%, 10%, 15%, 20% and 25% by weight. The cylindrical concrete specimens were tested for compressive strength, flexural strength, splitting tensile strength, slump and density .The compressive strength of the specimens was evaluated at the 3rd, 7th, 14th, 28th and 56th days of age. The flexural strength and the splitting tensile strengths were evaluated at 14th and 28 days of age. The results obtained satisfied the minimum specifications of relevant standards and manuals. The study concluded that mixture of saw dust ash and egg shell powder is a suitable supplementary cementitious material and can satisfactorily replace hydraulic cement up to 20% by weight in the construction and maintenance of concrete parking lot placed on the ground.
