Abstract

The majority of countries in the world suffer from rapid urbanization, which is associated with many problems as a result of the absence of integrated regional policies of development. One of the most important solutions is urban sprawl, a decentralization way to overcome the effects and problems of rapid urbanization. Hence the research problem in the lack of clarity of urban sprawl policies to solve the problem of overcrowding and overpopulation. The objective of the research is to determine the urban sprawl policies to solve the problem of overcrowding and overpopulation, the research hypothesis is that urban sprawl policies actively contribute to solving congestion and overpopulation problems. The research has come to define these policies and analyze an experience for each of them extracting the elements of success or the reasons for its failure to come up with the useful results in the success of those policies in solving the problem of overcrowding and overpopulation.

Abstract

Urban waterfronts are vital components of the urban landscape for cities with such areas. There are legal as well as planning implications for optimizing land uses within. An essential element to a successful policy for developing land strips along the river basin is a clear definition backed by a legal framework. A review of number of examples from different parts of the world indicates no universal approach to dealing with areas adjacent to water bodies . A survey of land uses along the waterfront of the city of Baghdad clearly indicates underutilization, which constitute a social and economic loss to urban residents.

Abstract

The purpose of this study is firstly; to find the urban configuration of new residential project (Zanko's Village) in Erbil city, to examine the efficiency of the urban spaces design at the local and global level by using space syntax theory (Depth Map 10),that gives for planner clear understanding for the whole systemby determining two type of spaces had been defined by Bill Hillier as integrated and segregated spaces. The main goal is to determine the most integrated and segregated spaces which enables planner to choice the best location for urban activities, from other hand to examine the intelligibility of the system where the intelligibility is an attribute to make place more cognizable for city's dweller and enables to move through the city easily to reach the destination point. The research problem represents about confusing in disposition of urban activities, from other hand the accessibility of activities depends on intelligibility of the system, therefore space syntax considers an active tool to discover the spatial structure of the city and to give different categorize of urban spaces. The hypotheses of the research: 1- The relationships between urban spaces, locally and globally have been influenced by the spatial patterns of the city. 2- The gridiron plan achieves a high degree of intelligibility. To attain research goals, and examine research hypotheses will be adopted the following methodology: - Analytical-descriptive method to establish a theoretical base to understand the urban structure including the main concepts and definitions. - Mathematical method to establish quantitative base to measure space syntax parameters, and to reach the intelligibility of the system by the correlation between variables. Finally the research submits a set of conclusions concerns to the syntactical analysis of study area, and other quantitative measures to understand city structure.

Abstract

Residentialusageisoneof the most important and biggest uses oflandtakingapproximately(50-60%) of the differentland use. Residentialusage has receivedbig attention and interest of many researchersand planners are interested inthe development and implementation ofdifferent foundationsandstandardsin order to create aresidential environmentthat is compatible to the necessities of a properand comfortable life. Infrastructure services provide an effective and vital role, therefore; they are considered as one of the most importantmattersmust be met for asustainable life. Accordingly due to thegrowthand improvement happeninginall aspects of life; it has becomenecessary to originatesuccessful methodsfor the purpose ofproviding and approving proper services. The inability ofauthorities(the public sector) to provide infrastructure services that commensurate with therequirements of modern lifein our cities, in which the study areaisone of them, has become clearly obvious. With theincreasingduties andresponsibilities ofpublic sectorin managingmanyand complexjoints of life, it hasbecamedifficult toprovide and support services that are characterized byhigh-class global standardstherefore; certain requirements and measures need to be taken. And dueto the presence ofprivate sector, andhas the ability tokeep pace with the technological and technical advances regarding the administrative and technical level, it has become a commitment to orientation this sector as a successful alternative. From here,we emphasize theimportance to studythe role ofthe private sectorin providing infrastructure servicesfor housing sector, and to focus onthe effective roleit provides for a convenient and comfortableresidential environment. Based onthis, the researchenfoldedon studying the mechanismsthat privatizethese services, these will be achieved by analyzingtheir properties and their role increatingservices that respond to the increasingrequirementsof life.

Abstract

The study named" Determine Suggestions to solve Informal Housing problems"is aimed to determine Informal Housing regions and scientific study for the phenomenon in Baghdad, This study is prepared within the framework of defining the concept of informal regions and the difference factors that led to its beginning and distribution, Then highlight the most important Issues and results of these regions. The time interval for the study is between (2003) to (2008) in (14) municipalities which represent the main design of Baghdad city, which witness the increased and spread of this phenomenon for the above interval. Also the study extends to some Neighbourhoods Unit in order to find out the increasing amount in Informal housing after 2008 to 2010. The study proved the presence of many problems that Baghdad city suffering, because of Informal housing, and in order to find the suitable solutions via questionnaire of concerned opinion of executive authorities and the planners opinion makers. The study results are that there is semi general agreement for refusing the Informal housing as it is, because this phenomenon is make defeat in social and economical sides and the town scape for the city,especially in Baghdad center and the interior, and the excepting of this phenomenon from some opinion makers in external regions of the city by suitable approach that the study deals with . This study then makes some conclusions and recommendations that hopefully will contribute to addressing the problem on one side and prevent its appearance and increasing on the other side, hoping to take advantage from it, in any future planning process concerning this phenomenon.

Abstract

The materials and construction techniques have evolved in the world in proportion to the new requirements of sustainable architecture, which lately have been used widely all over the world. To minimize the damage to the environment, reduce energy consumption, and the reliance on renewable energy sources to protect the rights of future generations in environmental resources. However, the local construction sector in Iraq has not kept pace with this great development, nevertheless still uses materials and construction techniques are not fit with the local environment. Referring to a recent residential project has been established in the Najaf province. This research aims at introducing the most prominent of these materials and technologies that can be used in the local architecture. And to adopt environmental criteria for evaluating constructions projects when building permits are giving to reduce environmental damage and wasting resources.
