  • Major Event-led Strategy for Urban Development and Revitalization

    • Authors: Siwaporn Klinmalai, Peeradorn Kaewlai
      Pages: 123 - 142
      Abstract: Organizing major events is one of the key driving mechanisms for increasing the competitiveness of destination cities, especially for the event host city. In addition to major events, community festivals and local celebrations also play an important role in increasing opportunities for creating lasting heritage because they reflect the unique city culture and their preservation of historical traditions become a cultural property. The readiness of the city also helps support a major event format that is appropriate for the context of the city and its identity. This study examined the readiness of a city through the lens of 6 key factors, i.e., geography, history, culture, tourist attractions or event venues, facilities, and transportation system of the city. In addition, the study assessed event potential for a city using criteria that included: having international content; potential to attract a large number of participants and international media; potential to generate economic benefits for the city; community participation activities; potential of the organizer and the event area; and ability to create a positive event experience. The proposals for the major events are divided into 2 types: local events that have potential to be upgraded to major events; and international major events that can be engaged to organize in the area according to the types of event: sports events, entertainment events, creative and lifestyle events, and art and cultural events. The result of the study revealed the criteria for assessing potential areas for hosting major events within the context of the city characteristics and capabilities. In addition, the contribution of this study provides guidance to a city that would like to be the host of a major event and organize the event, using the city’s assets.

  • Green Infrastructure Development for a Sustainable Urban Environment in
           Chittagong city, Bangladesh

    • Authors: Mahadi Hasan Syed, Mohammad Ali Haider
      Pages: 1 - 24
      Abstract: The urban green belts mechanism was part of the city planning landscape of the 20th century for sustainable urban management. Greenbelt is a land-use policy and designation used in land use/land cover planning. The green belt has long been a design policy that also has a base in London accepted by other renowned cities such as Ottawa, Birmingham, Seoul, Frankfurt, Tehran's, Mashhad, Beijing, Gulbarga, Ontario, etc. Benefits include the value of living close to the green belts, recreational resources, productive farmland, transport connectivity, and a wide range of life support ecosystem services. The study investigated the present green space condition and its infrastructure with other cities around the world and prescribed the other mechanism in reviewing the Master Plan and the Detailed Area Plan of Chittagong city, Bangladesh along with a significant number of journal articles, books, and reports. The study found that the city of Chittagong is facing various problems in the present decades with its various problems like green space, recreational facilities, disaster, public health risk and so many. It also found that the city's geographical condition is suitable for developing an effective green belt in its periphery area. Although green wedges is another park system proposal for the barriers of urban green belt. The importance of land allocation for urban green space is usually neglected or easily reported in the city transition region. Besides, the city of Glasgow, Stockholm, Melbourne, and Copenhagen, etc. are accepted green wedges mechanisms.  For some barriers as like as industrial development and some exclusive economic zone, some green wedges are much suitable in the gap of urban green belt in Chittagong city. The concept of green belt and green wedges both supports sustainable urban management in the city of Chittagong. However, these findings and analysis will be of great importance to the urban planners and decision-makers, for making environment-friendly sustainable future planning of modern and the planned Chittagong city.

  • Landscape Change Analysis: Ecosystem Services in the Peri-urban
           Agriculture of Bangkok

    • Authors: Fa Likitswat, Alisa Sahavacharin
      Pages: 25 - 38
      Abstract: Over the past decades, Bangkok peri-urban has been transformed from agricultural villages to urban development communities. Within the flat terrain and poor drainage characteristic of Chao Phraya Lower Floodplain, peri-urban agricultures are considered to be one of landscape patches and areas that creating and adding ecosystem services and values for mega urban areas. The significant loss of agricultural landscape of Bangkok peri-urban means that the loss of seasonal water retention areas, productive landscapes, as well as habitat for urban wildlife. This research classifies and analyzes landscape transformations especially agricultural landscape structures and functions of eight selective sites surrounded by the urban fringe of Bangkok. By tracing over the landscape change patterns backs form 1952 to 2018, the study areas include; 1) Rangsit Klong Sam and Klong Si, Pathumthani 2) Bang Kradi, Patumthani, 3) Lum Lukka Klong Hok Wa, Patumthani, 4) Klong Chorakea Noi and Klong Lat Krabang, Bangkok, 5) Bang Pla, Samut Prakarn, 6) Kok Kham, Samutsakorn, 7) Tha Mai, Samutsakorn, and 8) Klong Mahasawat, Nakorn Pathom. It is also critical linking and discussing on the ecosystem functions and services toward sustainable landscape management. This paper concludes the research gap between the lack of policies to practices for promoting the ecosystem services linking to the preserving and focusing on peri-urban agriculture landscape of Bangkok.

  • Redesigning an Italian Lake Chapel with Existing Proportions

    • Authors: Sajid I Awal
      Pages: 39 - 56
      Abstract: This research aims to derive the geometric proportion in the ruins of San Giovanni, an octagonal Renaissance chapel in Val Di Lago of Italy. It is a part of the revitalization competition project organized by Re-Use Italy in 2021. Vitruvius's methods that were later clearly used by Williams in relevant research are used for this research. Additionally, the method used by Balmer relating to finding the proportion system is also considered for this research. Eventually, findings from both analyses are compared, including relevant literature review, to derive the height of the roof of the remaining ruins of the octagonal Chapel, which is also a requirement for this competition. Literature reviews include the site's significance and orientation to the proportion system from the related research. From the findings, geometric proportions like 2:3 and 1:3 are used more dominantly throughout the analysis. The analysis is done from the drawings, including plans, elevation, and sections provided by the organizer. From the outcome of the investigation, any design layout can be generated which could be used for the design part of this competition project. Moreover, future relevant research can be carried out following this method to identify the existing ruins' proportion system.

  • Guidelines for Healthy Housing Development for All

    • Authors: Trirat Jarutach
      Pages: 57 - 70
      Abstract: Good health and well-being are some of the most significant trends in the contemporary world. Because of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, Thai people have healthier lifestyles, more concerned about their health, and consequently, change their behaviours to adapt to the ‘new normal’ ways of living. According to the result of an opinion survey by Suan Dusit Poll, 45.39% have changed their attention to healthcare by exercising, eating more healthy products, and emphasising housing and health education, and criteria for evaluating residential buildings have been established. The research study shows that the assessment criteria such as LEED and BREEAM mainly focus on energy and resource efficiency to reduce environmental impacts. At the same time, WELL and CASBEE tools are primarily occupant-oriented and include universal design principles. All of these aim for improving residents’ quality of life. The analysis of factors for healthy housing development indicates that residents were satisfied with eight essential factors such as location, lighting, materials, water quality, comfort, sound, air quality and energy conservation. Among these aspects, comfort and sound are the most critical factors. The results highlight the emphasis of project developers and architects. In the context of Thailand, the SOOK Building Standard by Thai Green Building Institute (TGBI) is a criterion used to evaluate both residential and other types of buildings. The objective of this research is to produce building evaluation criteria for residential and other building types. Consequently, future studies are recommended to study the physical characteristics and satisfaction of residents within a project with a healthy home concept., particularly in the projects that have received a certificate of building assessment criteria.

  • Design Perspective of Environmental Interventions through the Stroop
           Effect, Juggling, and Volunteering for Successful Ageing and Cognitive
           Health: A Review

    • Authors: Warawoot Chuangchai, Sebastiaan Raymaekers
      Pages: 71 - 84
      Abstract: Environmental design is one of the solutions that supports the idea of successful ageing as well as cognitive health. Designing with environmental interventions offers opportunities for restoration, maintenance, or even enhancement of cognition, particularly in ageing people. Problems of cognitive health, such as mild cognitive impairment and dementia, are frequently and naturally found in ageing people. Design practices and experimental studies in related fields are moving forward at a rapid pace. However, less data are available in relation to design perspectives for cognitive health in the ageing population. This article reviews the benefits of environmental interventions in enhancing cognitive function for ageing people. Relevant English language documents were searched and reviewed through online databases e.g. Scopus, PubMed, Web of Science, Google Scholar and ResearchGate. In this review, the environmental interventions include both physical and social environment interventions. The physical interventions focus on selective attention and decision-making via the Stroop effect and juggling balls respectively. The social intervention focuses on positive behaviour and benefits related to volunteerism and volunteer activities. This article presents environmental interventions that can be integrated as normal daily activities for ageing people to live healthier and more cognitively enriching lives. These interventions could be used in wellness design strategies and applications for designers. The findings of this review also extend the boundaries of designing for the ageing population as an advantage for specialists. Designing with an understanding of cognitive health in ageing people is beneficial and recommended.

  • Towards a Wind Urbanism in Tropical Environments

    • Authors: Antoine Perrau
      Pages: 85 - 104
      Abstract: One of the conditions for the proper functioning of passive comfort in humid tropical environments is access to natural ventilation in buildings. This notion of access to natural ventilation has taken on its full meaning during the current health crisis. Based on this observation established by a rich literature, we asked ourselves how to ensure the sustainability of the good functioning of natural ventilation in a humid tropical environment of a building in a built complex' This questioning led us to show the importance of the context through various dimensions: the chain of natural ventilation, the programmatic context, the climatic and geographical context, the regulatory context. Taking these parameters into account has allowed us, in the context of a case study, the eco-district Cœur de ville de La Possession, on the island of La Réunion, to develop a new conceptual approach associating urban planning and aeraulic engineering from the beginning of the design process for maximum efficiency. To this end, we initiated a new approach based on: co-design, the use of physical wind tunnel simulation at different scales, the integration of environmental, architectural and landscape recommendations at the scale of the district and of the buildings making up this district, in an enforceable urban planning regulation. This has enabled us, within the framework of this eco-district, to develop the concept of the right to natural ventilation, of the windy city and of the guarantee over time of the preservation of this potential. The transcription of this approach in other eco-neighbourhoods in a tropical environment seems to us to be a major challenge to be considered and which could even be extended to other climatic zones, in the context of current global warming.

  • English Housing Development and Informal Settlement Prevention Plan of
           Bungkan City, Thailand

    • Authors: Kitapatr Dhabhalabutr
      Pages: 105 - 122
      Abstract: An important challenge to delivering adequate housing solutions in Thailand is associated with management problems that lack an effective mechanism to connect between concerned organizations. It is necessary to equip local stakeholders with housing management capacity under a participatory process. In this project, a housing development plan that included extensive community participation was delivered to Bungkan province which is the most recently established province in Thailand (2011) and as such, still lacked such a plan. The research project, “Housing Development and Informal Settlement Prevention Plan of Bungkan City” was conducted collaboratively by the National Housing Authority of Thailand and Khon Kaen University. The three major research objectives were to: formulate a city housing development plan for Bungkan city; create a participatory process of stakeholders that empowered their capacity through the planning process; and create a mechanism for housing development which connects key agencies from the national level to the local community. The research applied the Ladder of Participation (Arnstein, 1969) as the theoretical framework, with a mixed scale of the ladders including Consultation, Partnership, and Delegated Power. Data gathering and the planning process used a mixed method approach that included geospatial analysis through a Geographic Information System application, in-depth interviews, a questionnaire survey, stakeholder meetings, study trips, workshops, and exhibitions. At the end of project, the research achieved a housing development plan for Bungkan city with a new vision that included 5 strategies, 12 plans, and 46 projects. The research found that the key factor of project success was stakeholder’s inclusion at the beginning stage to the last stage of operation. In particular, the partnership concept in the form of joint committees shaped trustworthy relationships between stakeholders and allowed them to share a sense of ownership.
