Abstract

The significance of neighbourhood in hosting a group of dwellings units and possessing adequate communal facilities could not be overemphasized in the study of people and place relationships. There are two main objectives of this study: (i) to study the neighbourhood’s associated challenges through the size, growth, and land use distribution, and (ii) to investigate the perceived inhabitants’ activities pattern within the neighbourhood. The objectives are explored through a morphological and GIS-based land use analysis of a rural neighbourhood in South-west, Nigeria. The town is studied in three transformation phases, dating back to five decades using ArcGIS version 10.3. The 1st phase spanned between the year 1910 to 1959, while the 2nd and 3rd phases ran through the year 1960 to 1999, and year 2000 to 2015 respectively. The exploration in this study is to document the diverse neighbourhood challenges, features, and prospects, which remain uninvestigated in the case study area for the past years. The first finding revealed that some challenges needed to be resolved in a bid to meet the residents’ current basic needs. The second finding indicated that the rural settlements in Nigeria emanated from the residents’ adaptation to the environmental conditions, cum transformation through human activities. Meanwhile, the third finding established that the human settlements evolved in connection to the local socio-economic, recreation and religious virtues of the traditional marketplace (Oja). In conclusion, human historical and social influences play a significant role in ameliorating the challenges associated with the spatial developments of the settlements. The implication of the study becomes vital to the major stakeholders and professionals in the built environment on the significance of enhancing the sustainable communities in Nigeria.

Abstract

Rapid urbanization and the concern for climate change have led to a growing trend to bring nature into the cities. Due to artificial urbanization, urban heat islands have become a serious problem. Greenery is expected to be an effective countermeasure, and much research is available regarding green roofs, green walls, street trees and parks. The intent of this paper is to present a synthesis of the literature review on the design and technology for cooling of building and surroundings by using vertical greenery system. Effect of design parameters on building microclimate and the applicable cooling technologies are discussed.Keywords: Vertical greenery system, cooling effect, temperature reduction, humidity

Abstract

Home-school journey is part of children daily routine in many Indonesian cities and towns. Consequently, the street environment is an important component for children’s growth and development. In the last two decades, many urban centers have been identified as unsuitable for children’s home-school journey due to issues relating to high urban density and traffic congestion. Therefore, many children are denied the opportunity to experience the outdoor environment. Their life is centered at homes and within their schools. There are few studies that explore the affordances of street environment on home-school journey for less privileged children in old city zones. This study explores the affordances of street environment that influence children’s play behavior and performance during their home-school journey. The elements and environment of home-school journey play an important role in promoting children’s active free play toward their environment. This study observed 40 less-privileged children, aged 9 to 11, from low income families that walked to their schools in the old city zone of Makassar. Data on children’s activities and their perceptual responses on the street environment during the journey were elicited using one method which was children’s observation. The data were content analyzed using Nvivo software. The result revealed that the children displayed a variety of behaviors related to the social transaction, physical play and decision making. Affordances of street environment are associated with elements including buildings, vehicles and street furniture whereby the children’s direct engagements lead to indirect learning.  Therefore, middle-childhood children recognized that the street environment is part of their routine living experience.
