ItemZEMCH International Research 2020Kim, J-T ; Noguchi, M ; Altan, H (MDPI, 2022-01-08)ZEMCH is the acronym of “Zero Energy Mass Custom Home” and this research network was established with the aim of encouraging the active participation of academic researchers, , policy makers, and industry stakeholders, tackling issues arising in the delivery of socially, economically, environmentally and humanly sustainable built environments in developed and developing countries. Essentially, homes need to be designed and operated in such a way that helps to secure or improve physical and mental health and wellbeing of the occupants with diverse socio-economic backgrounds and cultural differences. Moreover, housing is also a complex system of energy and environment. Subsequently, energy use in buildings tends to generate negative impacts on environmental consequences and, thus, it cannot be undermined. Gradually, house-builders and housing manufacturers are becoming more aware of, and responsive to, the necessity for delivering zero energy/emission mass custom homes (i.e., ZEMCH) that contribute to alleviating the negative environmental impacts of climate change, while accommodating individual needs and demands of housing. This Special Issue is titled “ZEMCH International Research 2020”, reflecting the outcomes of the ZEMCH International Conference 2019, and aims to address innovative developments, state-of-the-art technologies and ideas in areas related to design, production and marketing issuessurrounding the ZEMCH delivery and operation around the globe. Selected authors from the ZEMCH 2019 conference are invited to submit their adapted papers to this Special Issue. Moreover, we also encourage researchers who were unable to participate in the 2019 conference to submit their research outcomes to this edition, which will be fully peer-reviewed, with the view to further selection and publication.
ItemThe Future Park & BeyondWalls, W ; Walliss, J ; Walls, W ; Walliss, J (Melbourne School of Design, 2021-05-25)A collection of essays, speculative design projects and discussions. Beginning with a focus on the Future Park competition, this publication documents this evolving discussion through the inclusion of design work and writing emerging from the Melbourne School of Design during our 2020 COVID academic year.
ItemEquitable Land Use for Asian InfrastructureTiwari, P ; Stillman, GB ; Yoshino, N (Asian Development Bank Institute, 2020-02-25)This volume will be of interest to policymakers, practitioners, academics, and students. Obtaining rights over land can be complicated by hurdles imposed by geography, settlement patterns, conflicting cultures, sociopolitical factors, and land use problems unique to each country. Equitable Land Use for Asian Infrastructure identifies policies that can balance the rights and interests of first peoples, informal settlers, and rural landowners against the development imperatives of land procurement for the greater public good. The collected chapters propose and assess promising models that might be customized to local conditions, such as long-term land leasing with options to buy. This timely volume will be insightful for policy makers, practitioners, academics, and students interested in instructive case studies of the state of Asian land registration, eminent domain, and redevelopment in situations of vulnerable communities.
ItemFuture prototyping Exhibition CatalogueLoh, P ; Qu, M ; Leggett, D ; Loh, P ; Qu, M ; Leggett, D (Melbourne School of Design, the University of Melbourne, 2020)Future Prototyping is the long-awaited effort to critically review and survey the current state of design innovation within the Australia and New Zealand context as we moved into a new decade. With foreword by Professor Jane Burry, authors of numerous books including Prototyping for Architects (Burry & Burry 2016, Thames & Hudson), the catalogue is edited and introduced by the curatorial teams consisting of architecture educators and design practitioners. This catalogue accompanied the Future Prototyping exhibition held at the Dulux Gallery, the Melbourne School of Design, from 24th of Feb – 27th of March 2020. The exhibition gathered for the first time 36 unique projects spanning multiple disciplines from art to engineering, architecture, fashion and computing to examine the status of prototype and how it acts as a pivotal moment for designers to articulate novel ideas and speculate on the future of our society.
