About the Journal
International Journal of Architectural and Infrastructure Planning [2456-0154(e)] is a peer-reviewed hybrid open-access journal launched in 2015 with all these trends allowing the perfect distribution of work in all stages of the construction process and thus enabling proper execution with fewer inaccuracies, the popularity of BIM (Building Information Modeling) is reaching new heights. As a result, it enables the work of multiple roles such as engineers, architects, estimators, clients, and many others in a single shared process. In the building and designing process, the additive design incorporates both human and artificial intelligence. It won’t be long before more robots and humans collaborate to build a more efficient project. 3D printing has not only enabled the construction of prototype models of actual structures, but it can now construct the entire structure by itself.
Focus and Scope
Green Infrastructure: Gray infrastructure refers to the older (and typically more expensive) water management systems that green infrastructure supplements and, in some cases, replaces. It uses hard infrastructure like storm drains, concrete, and pipes to collect and channel stormwater (sometimes treated, sometimes not) into waterways. It does not provide the same range of benefits as green infrastructure because it does not reduce the amount of stormwater that enters waterways and, for the most part, does not improve the quality of that runoff.
Landscape Architecture: The design of outdoor areas, landmarks, and structures to achieve environmental, social-behavioral, or aesthetic goals is known as landscape architecture. It entails the systematic design and general engineering of various structures for construction and human use, as well as the investigation of existing social, ecological, and soil conditions and processes in the landscape, as well as the design of other interventions that will produce the desired results.
Spatial Planning: Space planning is a detailed examination of how physical space is used in structures. It considers the function of spaces as well as who will use them. Space planning is a multi-step process that is an essential component of the work of interior designers and architects.
Organic Architecture: Organic architecture refers to architectural designs that are inspired by, built around, and blended in with their natural surroundings. Frank Lloyd Wright, an American architect, coined the term organic architecture. Organic designs do not attempt to infringe on nature, but rather coexist with it, resulting in a composition that celebrates and converses with the natural world. Organic architecture is defined by its relationship with nature and the consistent use of styles and natural materials to form a cohesive whole.
Infrastructure planning, design, and management: Modern societies rely on infrastructure networks such as transportation systems, power grids, water utilities, and communication networks to function. National and local economies are heavily reliant on efficient and dependable infrastructure networks. Furthermore, infrastructure networks that provide an adequate level of service add value and a competitive advantage to a region’s socioeconomic growth. The primary function of transportation infrastructure networks is to provide continuous physical access to and from communities, as well as to support reliable, safe, and efficient transportation of people and goods between regions.
Landscape ecology: Landscape ecological concepts have a lot of potential for incorporating ecological knowledge into landscape planning (Botequillha Leitao and Ahern 2002). According to Merriam-online Webster’s dictionary, an abstract or generic idea is generalized from specific instances (Merriam-Webster 2020). In the context of landscape ecology, these concepts can refer to the representation and organization of landscape elements (for example, in terms of connectivity), landscape characteristics (for example, patterns), or frameworks for landscape analysis (e.g., landscape services).
Urban Green Infrastructure: Urban parks, street trees, landscaped boulevards, gardens, river, and coastal promenades, greenways, river corridors, wetlands, nature preserves, tree shelterbelts, and working trees (e.g., trees that provide windbreaks, riparian buffers, alley cropping, silvopasture) at former industrial sites are examples of these (USFS, n.d.). Through shading and the cooling effects of evapotranspiration, urban forests can reduce energy use (particularly for air conditioning) and the urban heat island effect.
Space green infrastructure: Space Management and Planning is a subset of Facility Management (FM), a professional field that encompasses everything related to the physical premises that a business occupies. Facilities Management encompasses not only office space usage, but also industrial and manufacturing spaces such as factories, laboratories, loading docks, retail space, mailrooms, outdoor test facilities, and other similar structures.
Charging infrastructure planning: The placement of electric vehicle chargers at home, work, and other convenient locations are determined by charging infrastructure planning. We assume in this study that all BEV drivers have access to level 1 chargers at home.
Enterprise Architecture: A conceptual blueprint that defines the structure and operation of organizations is known as enterprise architecture (EA). The goal of enterprise architecture is to determine how an organization can achieve its current and future goals effectively. The practice of analyzing, planning, designing, and eventually implementing analysis on an enterprise is referred to as enterprise architecture.
