Group BE: Built environment


Built Environment group will take a new perspective on sustainable built environment and strategical approaches responding to climate change. Papers deal with the theoretical and/or practical aspects of the built environment. Two structured sessions are organised at EKC 2016. First session will deal with built environment that is integrated with diverse fields such as design, construction, and engineering. Second session is organised by the Korea Institute of Civil Engineering and Building Technology (KICT) and recent works on sustainable urban development and eco-city design will be presented.


Following sessions are focused in Built Environment at EKC 2016:

1) Sustainable built environment and urban design

2) National land use plans & Eco-city

3) Poster presentation




Session BE 1: Sustainable built environment and urban design (Room: Estrel C5) 14:00 - 15:40, 29 July


Convener/Chair: Dr. Pyoung Jik Lee (University of Liverpool, UK;


Session description: Built environment has substantial impacts on our lives. It contributes to air pollution, water pollution, and energy consumption and impacts on human health and climate change. In response, there are numerous local, national, and international entities adopting green and sustainable criteria for new construction and renovations. The primary objective of this session is to introduce the research and innovations aiming at creating a sustainable built environment that reduces resources consumption and creates better environment for well-being. This session deals with sustainable approaches for built environment by considering technical, behavioural and social issues and by examining how building and urban designs affect human performance and well-being. Therefore, the session will cover the various dimensions of the sustainable built environment such as indoor environment, energy, water, materials, urban design, and management and operations. Potential speakers of the session include researchers, students, architects, urban designers, and industry professionals.


14:00 - 14:20 “Camps and Cities in the Eastern Provinces of Rome: A Topographic Survey of Urbanisation”, Dr. Kee-Hyun Ban (King's College London, United Kingdom)

Session BE 2: National land use plans & Eco-city (Room: Estrel C5) 16:00 - 17:40, 29 July


Convener/Chair:Dr. Jung Woo Lee (Korea Institute of Civil Engineering and Building Technology, Korea;

Co-convener: Dipl.-Ing . Kiduk Moon (Brandenburg University of Technology Cottbus, Germany;



Session description: Most countries have their own short-term and long-term national land use plans, which have specific goals such as ‘economic growth,’ ‘population control,’ ‘decentralization of industry,’ ‘secure water resources,’ and ‘responding to climate change,’ formulating and promoting to solve various problems reflecting the needs of each political era. One of the main issues and trends when developing a new city and rebuilding an old city is how the city would be safe from the climate change, and how the city would have more green spaces for better human life; a such city is called an ‘eco-city.’ Therefore, this session will cover history and projects of national land use plans, and current status of eco-city development in Korea and Europe. Experts in this group will discuss and exchange their knowledge and experiences on sustainable urban development and eco-city design.
