The growing number of population and environmental degradation are due to natural disaster and economic depression. As a result, the rate of urban poor is and producing huge pressure on urban lands, housing and infrastructure. Due to limited resources these poor people encroached open spaces, wetlands, vacant plots or even footpath for shelter. They don’t have any access to proper job market, healthcare facilities, education and sanitation either. These constraints are mostly resulted from the failures of the government in initiation proper policies and measures. Past policies of slum clearance, modernist apartment projects, housing provision, self-help, sites and services, and in-situ upgrading have not been effective at solving the crisis. This is now prime time to established planning and environmental management policy and sustainable development of the city area. Urban land management, rehabilitation and socio-economic development of the slum dwellers are also very important issues. The key focus of this paper is to find out sustainable development process for urban slum dwellers and build sustainable living place for them which are free from eviction, criminals, rent seekers and other miscreants.</p> Sanjida Ahmed Sinthia Copyright (c) 2021 Sanjida Ahmed Sinthia https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/4.0 2021-06-24 2021-06-24 20 1 42 55 10.36041/iqjap.v20i1.534 Urban Strategies for Managing the Coronavirus Crisis https://www.iqjap.org/index.php/iqjap/article/view/538 <p>The management of the spread of the Coronavirus crisis is one of the main challenges in the world today, and of increasing importance due to the widespread spread of the epidemic and its negative repercussions on local communities around the world, which put local administrations on the front lines to address the pandemic and take the lead in mitigating its effects. The article attempts to develop a theoretical and applied model to manage the crisis of the outbreak of the Coronavirus in urban areas by monitoring and analyzing the forms of local administrations' response to the pandemic and mitigating its negative repercussions on local communities and the health of the population. The article is also considered a scientific contribution learned from global experiences in pandemic management by formulating a scientific methodology in the form of urban strategies and clarifying their direct objectives, stages of work, and their application methods at the urban level to serve as a base on which local administrations rely in their work to reach the recovery stage.</p> Mohammad Alaa Aljaffan Copyright (c) 2021 Mohammad Alaa Aljaffan https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/4.0 2021-06-05 2021-06-05 20 1 24 41 10.36041/iqjap.v20i1.538 The Nature Of The Architectural Surfaces And The Structural Relationships In Order To Build Stability And Formal Balance https://www.iqjap.org/index.php/iqjap/article/view/531 <p>The architectural surface represents one of the main pillars of formal configuration that work with each other to give the building external appearance and its formal properties. In general, the most important challenges facing the study of architecture is the analysis of The Structural Relationships under which the formal formation and formulas for generating its patterns within the different architectural directions to benefit from her in the process of architectural education. This research paper represented a step in the way of analyzing and establishing an information base for architectural propositions that dealt with surfaces according to Structural Relationships with multiple linking, modulating mechanisms, and applying that to selected models for outstanding architectural works throughout architectural history, Then these mechanisms were crystallized and explained precisely and in detailed drawings using the AutoCAD program, reaching the characteristics of the formal configuration at the level of balance and stability resulting from the nature of these architectural surfaces and the relationships according to which. The research methodology is based on building&nbsp; comprehensive theoretical framework on the form, architectural surfaces and structural relationships, as this is considered a necessity to explore the mechanisms by which the designer works within the Modernity and Deconstruction architecture</p> Anwar Shareef Copyright (c) 2021 Anwar Shareef https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/4.0 2021-04-01 2021-04-01 20 1 1 23 10.36041/iqjap.v20i1.531 The Smart Systems' Role In the Infrastructure's Integrated Management For Housing Projects https://www.iqjap.org/index.php/iqjap/article/view/518 <p>Many contemporary economic and social drivers have enabled the introduction of sensor network technologies, computing and communication systems in urban infrastructure and contemporary housing projects with the aim of achieving integration between infrastructure management. As a result, the current study deals with a topic that has not been dealt with through previous studies, theses and theses in an accurate and required manner. Therefore, the aim of the research was to clarify the role of smart systems in achieving integrated management by building a comprehensive theoretical framework to be a research problem (the need for a comprehensive theoretical framework on the role of smart systems in achieving integrated management of infrastructure infrastructure related to housing projects). This goal is achieved by adopting a descriptive analytical approach that includes several stages, the first of which is the analysis of multiple studies and the extraction of the main vocabulary represented in (the basic elements of infrastructure intelligence, planning, design, monitoring and observation of Smart infrastructure). Second, applying these vocabulary to a number of global projects, then discussing the results of the practical study, and presented final conclusions , to be a knowledge base that can be used and applied to future projects.</p> Marwa Mohmmed Alzidi Safaa Aldeen Hussein Al-Samarae Copyright (c) 2021 Marwa Mohmmed Alzidi, Safaa Aldeen Hussein Al-Samarae https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/4.0 2021-02-16 2021-02-16 20 1 72 87 10.36041/iqjap.v19i2.518 Urban Health’s Methods and Checklist https://www.iqjap.org/index.php/iqjap/article/view/527 <p>The purpose of the article is to prepare an integrated theoretical and applied framework for the concept of urban health and methodologies for its application and checking, by presenting and analyzing the relevant literature and experiences. The article includes an analytical study of the concept of urban health, and the identification of planning methodologies that have a positive impact on the health and well-being of urban residents. The article was also concerned with developing a methodology to checking that the topics of urban health are included in existing cities or in their future plans. After that, the article tended to analyze several global cities with a healthy planning direction, checking the topics of urban health in each of them and compare them, then draw lessons learned from these global experiences.</p> Muhammed Alaa Al-Jafan Suliman Mufrij Al-Muhanna Copyright (c) 2021 Muhammed Alaa Al-Jafan, Suliman Mufrij Al-Muhanna https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/4.0 2021-02-06 2021-02-06 20 1 51 71 10.36041/iqjap.v19i2.527
