Sustainable Built Environment is a component of Encyclopedia of Technology, Information, and Systems Management Resources in the global Encyclopedia of Life Support Systems (EOLSS), which is an integrated compendium of twenty one Encyclopedias.

Environmental conservation and technological innovation are two principal forces that drive the building industry toward the future. Technological innovation offers many opportunities to make buildings more dynamic and comfortable, and occupants more comfortable and productive. The necessity of environmental conservation, on the other hand, compels all types of developments and human activities to be environmentally responsive. The content of the Theme on Sustainable Built Environment is organized with state-of-the-art presentations covering several topics: Urban Design ; Emerging Issues in Building Design; Environment, Energy and Health in Housing Design; Culture, Management Strategies, and Policy Issues in the Sustainable Built Environment; Using Technology to Improve the Quality of City Life; Urban and Regional Transportation, which are then expanded into multiple subtopics, each as a chapter. These two volumes are aimed at the following five major target audiences: University and College students Educators, Professional practitioners, Research personnel and Policy analysts, managers, and decision makers and NGOs.

Dr. Fariborz Haghighat holds the position of full professor at the Department of Building Civil and Environmental Engineering – Concordia University. Dr. Haghighat earned his B.Sc. degree from Arya-Mehr University, Tehran – Iran and M.A.Sc. degree from the University of Arizona –USA and Ph.D. from Waterloo University – Canada. He is a member of the Professional Engineers of Ontario, the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-conditioning Engineers, and the International Society of Indoor Air Quality. He has been representing Canada at the International Energy Agency Meetings since 1988, and has authored over hundreds articles in the scientific journals and presented at numerous conferences.

Dr. Jong-Jin Kim is an associate professor at Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning, University of Michigan. The principal theme of his research and scholarly work is to explore architectural ramifications of technological innovation and environmental conservation. He teaches and conducts research on sustainable design and building intelligence. His research work on building technology spans three continents. In the late 1970s, he worked on developing a building energy analysis model for passive solar buildings at the University of Texas at Austin Numerical Simulation Laboratory. In the 1980s, he worked on the research staff at the Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory, University of California, Berkeley, where he received his Ph.D. in Architecture. He has gained international recognition through his work on computer modeling of radiation flux exchange.

In 1985, Dr. Kim served as a visiting academic to the University of Strathclyde, and collaborated with European researchers for the EEC Building Research Consortium. From 1989 to 1994, he served as a US representative to the International Energy Agency Task XII group. In January 1994, he served as the chair of the 1994 ACSA (Association of Collegiate Schools of Architecture in North America) Technology Conference under a theme “Design and Technological Innovation for the Environment.”

He has published, and given many lectures internationally, on sustainable design and building intelligence. In the 1990s, at the University of Michigan, he developed the “Architectural Compendium for Environmental Education (ACEE),” which is one of the first educational resources for teaching sustainable design in architecture. This compendium is being disseminated among architectural educators in the United States. His article entitled “Intelligent Building Systems” was featured on McGraw Hill’s Time Saver Standards. Dr. Kim has collaborated with many local and international architectural firms on award winning green building projects. In 1997, the Korean Institute of Energy Research, in the design and construction of the first green office building in Korea, invited him to be the “green-building” consultant. In 2001, he constructed a mock-up building called “Smart Building Module,” which is a full-scale experimental facility to showcase and conduct studies on advanced building control technologies. Currently, he is writing a book entitled Building Intelligence: Building Technology of the Future. ©Encyclopedia of Life Support Systems (EOLSS)
