Vol. 17 (2021): January - June
With the great pleasure, we would like to present the Volume 17.02021 of the International Journal of BUILT which contains the research papers related to the field of Building, Urban, Interior and Landscape Technology. This online journal is published biannually the results of significant research articles which the current volume consists of four interesting articles from both local and foreign researchers. The collection of all articles can be listed as the following topics;
- Exploring the Impact of On-street Parking in Chittagong City, Bangladesh;
- ArcGIS Web- based Rapid Application Development for Presenting Urban Street Trees on Sidewalks;
- Nature Integrated Architectural Design: Construction of a Habitable Tree House in Khon Kaen;
- Resilient Home Design for A Coastal Community of Baan Khun Samut Chin, Samutprakan.
The article entitled “Technical Approaches of PM2.5 Control for Spatial Design in Thailand” was also reviewed to find suitable PM2.5 purification and techniques matched to tropical climate and high concentration conditions. The review was scoped to three levels of living conditions from outdoor situation for landscape study to architectural integration for architecture study and indoor applicable functions for interior designer study. Furthermore, this volume also includes the book reviews of “The New Carbon Architecture: Building to Cool the Climate” which is the most recent book by Bruce King (2017) and was presented by Associate Professor Dr. Supreedee Rittironk. This book provides many points and
interesting contents discussed about creation of both embodied carbon and operational carbon by the entire building creating process. However, the embodied carbon has not been discussed much which is the major portion of carbon production and also comes from processes (how materials are manufactured, how materials are transported, and how energy is used in construction process).
We gratefully acknowledge all of the board members, editors and editorial staffs for their contribution and continued support for this issue. Finally, we are extremely happy to release this issue and it is our hope that this fine collection of articles will be a valuable resource for readers and will stimulate further research into the vibrant area of our architects and the scholarly community.
