Built Environment
The importance of maintaining the quality of the built environment surrounding all of us can not be stressed enough since it has significant influence over our life, community and society in a variety of ways. It can not only enhance the quality of our life, but also enrich our local communities. However, the built environment, which is obviously distinguished from the natural environment, has inevitably involved the consumption of all available resources around us such as trees, water, electricity, gas and coals. As a result, our effort to create a better built environment has paradoxically helped exploit our natural resources to a certain level that we now ought to think of sustainability to the standard of our living. Growing and greater pressure for sustainable built environment and development is now upon interdisciplinary involvement from architects, town and urban planners, engineers and policy makers, in order to build sustainable society for next generations. The sessions prepared in EKC 2018 deal with the aforementioned problems, study strategical approaches for more sustainable built environment responding to climate change and building efficiency, listen to recent researches and works touching on sustainable methodology from theoretical and practical points of view, and finally raise a question that would bring us an answer to what more needs to be exercised for our next generations and society. The talk sessions programmed on 23rd August 2018 are as follows; 11:00 – 12: 40 at Room R4 Challenge for urban planning: Heat stress in the Built Environment 13:30 – 15:10 at Room R4 The present and future of sustainable Smart City 16:00 – 17:40 at Room R4 Sound visualisation as a tool to helping to design future infrastructure There is also a poster session in relation to the Built Environment.

Synopsis
Among the challenges urban planning is currently faced in many parts of the world such as Europe or Asia, the response to increasing severe summer heat due to regional climate change takes on a relatively important role. As the urban population and the number of the particularly vulnerable elderly people are also increasing, countermeasures have to be developed and apply that result in a reduction of local human heat stress during severe regional heat. These planning measures must be consistent with requirements by the provision of affordable housing in terms of internal development and further densification. By applying methods and results from urban human-biometeorological investigations, the measures that are mostly focused on shading the direct solar radiation and ensuring sufficient ventilation become important for the urban population. Daytime measures such as optimized street and building design as well as locally trees and artificial devices, which reduce the heat input into all urban spaces by shading of the direct solar radiation, have a first priority. Cities on the coast also benefit from the sea breeze. Measures at night, which ensure sufficient ventilation and cooling have a second priority. In this context, the session will provide an excellent opportunity for an effective international dialog. It aims at bringing together urban planners, architects, academic researchers and students from around the world to present and discuss innovative approaches for a better and more sustainable urban and built environment. The session topics may address the following themes, but they do not have to be exclusively related to them: - trends of building design considering the impacts of regional climate change, - sustainable urban form, design and landscapes in the face of severe heat, - urban adaptation strategies to reduce negative impacts of extreme weather events on humans.

Synopsis
Interest in smart city has been increasing as an alternative to tackling many of urban problems that we have encountered so far. Europe has applied smart city services, technologies and programs to several European cities through the EU Smart City program. Korea has also been pursuing smart city policies such as the selection of national pilot cities and the implementation of national R & D projects. To correspond with the speed and advance of world’s sustainable smart city initiatives, this session looks to find ways for mutual cooperation through sharing the promotion situation of smart cities in Korea and Europe. First, examples of smart city promotion in Korea and Europe will be presented. And then Energy, healthcare, green building and Smart City certification will be presented followed by in-depth discussion about the topic.

Synopsis
Sound is one of most subjective concepts that human senses engaged brain in our normal life. In order us to understand the character of sound which may have adverse effects on human life or health, it is inevitable to normalise the sound for a typical healthy adult (in other word, sound exposure does levels are generally used for an environmental noise assessment on health adults). The scientists (specialised in acoustics) analyse sound levels which is presented in an agreed format (decibel, dB) to represent the sound. However, it is often the true meaning of the numbers shown in a report is not correctly translated to non-specialists. For better communication and minimising the lost meaning in transection, sound can be presented in a common language such as sound is presented as sound (this is called ‘Auralisation’). Human would accept the information as truth if our typical senses (such as sight, hearing, taste, smell and touch) perceive certain information from believable evidences at the same time (even if they are not real). In this presentation, senses of hearing and sight are discussed only. The information human perceives by sight which often overtakes over the information collected by hearing by the process that brain works. The fact is that it is our illusion what see we trust more than what we hear, again even if that is not what we hear or see. It is therefore when the future sound is presented with visual component is considered a powerful tool (reasonably believable) to deliver the message to either specialists or non-specialists. The presentation is divided into two sections: Sound and Visual. The first section of the presentation will take audiences on the journey through how the current technique has been developed by presenting its background, method, history and applications. The second session is to discuss the effectiveness of visual aided sound demonstration during sound demonstrations at Arup Glasgow Soundlab (the Hub).
