Ekistics and The New Habitat https://ekisticsjournal.org/index.php/journal <p>The new online journal of<em><strong> Ekistics and the New&nbsp;Habitat</strong></em>,&nbsp;aims to connect the practice of Ekistics with sustainable development practice for all types,&nbsp;scales, and bounded frames of human settlements: urban, rural or remote; traditional or modern; formal or informal; on and off world, and in developed or lesser developed contexts. We also aim to extend the Ekistics framework in terms of how we now understand settlement sustainability, livability, advanced technologies (including the role of the "internet of stuff"), and human wellbeing through the complex and adaptive dynamics at play.&nbsp;</p> <p><strong><em>Ekistics and the New Habitat</em> </strong>provides&nbsp;an excellent platform for researchers, educators, policy makers and students, to submit work&nbsp;for <strong>Double-Blind, Peer Reviewed articles. &nbsp;</strong>Topics may range in scale of human settlement, to data driven patterns&nbsp;and&nbsp;systems, to the human&nbsp;scale of people centred design, or to propositions of a&nbsp;grand theory where ecology and climate interact with the settlements economy, design, technology and its residents&nbsp;and vistors. &nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> en-US <p>Please contact the <em>Editor-in-Chief</em>: <strong><a href="mailto:ekisticsjournal@gmail.com" target="_blank" rel="noopener">ekisticsjournal@gmail.com</a>, </strong>should you have any questions on copyright for your submission.</p> <p>This research journal is for Educational and Knowledge development purposes.</p> <p>All material published on this site complies with our copyright and terms as described by the <strong>Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivaties 4.0 International</strong> (CC BY-NC-ND 4.0)</p> <p>See:&nbsp;<a href="http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0">http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0</a></p> ekisticsjournal@gmail.com (Associate Professor Kurt Seemann) ekisticsjournal@gmail.com (Associate Professor Kurt Seemann) Sun, 31 Dec 2006 00:00:00 -0800 OJS 3.1.1.4 http://blogs.law.harvard.edu/tech/rss 60 Front Matter https://ekisticsjournal.org/index.php/journal/article/view/80 <p>Front Matter</p> Panayis Psomopoulos ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0 https://ekisticsjournal.org/index.php/journal/article/view/80 Fri, 01 Dec 2006 00:00:00 -0800 The editor's page https://ekisticsjournal.org/index.php/journal/article/view/82 <p>In the present volume on "Globalization and Local Identity" we host a comprehensive report of a major international debate on human settlements that took place in Hikone, Japan, from 19 to 24 September, 2005, organized jointly by the World Society for Ekistics and the University of Shiga Prefecture.&nbsp;</p> P.

Naturally, if I only had to hint at some aspects of his life experiences, performance and achievements, the time needed would be much longer. But I am happy not to have to go into this and just welcome Professor Maki as my teacher, as an architect/urban designer who first introduced Doxiadis to Japan in the early 1960s by giving a lecture in Tokyo regarding Doxiadis Associates..."</p> Koichi Nagashima ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0 https://ekisticsjournal.org/index.php/journal/article/view/91 Fri, 01 Dec 2006 00:00:00 -0800 My urban design of fifty years https://ekisticsjournal.org/index.php/journal/article/view/92 <p>Professor Maki was a member of the faculty of the School of Architecture at Washington University from 1956 to 1963.
