This systematic review examines the use of smart technology to overcome those challenges through a case study and rapid reviews comparing the heritage preservation method in Malaysia and Türkiye. Given both generic and Islamic-specific contexts of the two countries' comparison, the study aims to understand how well both countries attempt to resolve conventional heritage preservation using several smart technologies applications using augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR), the Internet of Things (IoT), and drone technology. The finding carefully outlined the benefits, challenges, and limitations of smart technology techniques for better smart heritage governance direction in the future. It highlighted their significant role in smart heritage initiatives, including robotics, automation, 5G, and augmented reality in museums. These technologies enhance safety, prevent damage, and provide immersive learning experiences, helping policymakers and historical preservationists better understand the potential of smart technology.</span> </p> 2023-12-29T00:00:00+08:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Journal of Architecture, Planning and Construction Management A REVIEW OF EMERGENCY ROADS IN ISTANBUL: PAST, CURRENT AND FUTURE 2023-10-17T12:04:55+08:00 Ahmet Bas <p> <span class="fontstyle0">In case of earthquakes, floods, fires, and landslides, access to the disaster area is vital via transportation modes, either road or rail, marine, and airways to save people and reduce the causalities. In this respect, the transportation planning process is crucial in evaluating the systems’ road capacity and demand conditions to plan an efficient and effective emergency master plan. During the disaster management process, the worst scenario considers mobility that will occur before, during, and after the disasters. The location choices of disaster management centers and logistic activity areas, as well as meeting points that will be used in an emergency, are determined, and positioned according to the status of emergency transportation routes. This study reviews the Istanbul emergency road conditions in terms of their capacity, damaged position, and requirements for an earthquake. It illustrates past, current, and future circumstances of emergency roads in Istanbul by using building data to estimate the possibility of the closure of emergency roads. ArcMAP program is used for analyzing the emergency road capacity and damaged position. Building conditions are determined by using the Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality data. Besides, Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) and Megacity Indicator System for Disaster Risk Management (MegaIST) reports also give tremendous information during the preparation of emergency road analysis. Based on the investigation, the conditions of the emergency roads in Istanbul are evaluated, and suggestions for future development are made to highlight the conditions. According to the results, it determines that many roads will be closed in a possible earthquake because of the buildings located near emergency roads.</span> </p> 2023-12-29T00:00:00+08:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Journal of Architecture, Planning and Construction Management CONSIDERING ISTANBUL AS THE DRIVING FORCE OF THE MARMARA CITY REGION: AN ANALYSIS FOCUSING ON THE INDUSTRIAL SECTOR 2023-10-31T10:17:27+08:00 Fatih Eren Muhammed Ziya Paköz <p> <span class="fontstyle0">The Marmara city region which covers fourteen cities (?stanbul, Edirne, Tekirda?, K?rklareli, Çanakkale, Bal?kesir, Bursa, Yalova, Bilecik, Eski?ehir, Kocaeli, Sakarya, Düzce and Bolu) is a highly accessible place where commodities and services needed by 5.7 billion people are met with each other and transferred among continentals. This study aims to define the role of Istanbul within the Marmara city region; to present the current state of the industrial sector in terms of site selection and regional specialization within the city region; and to discuss the future of the sector from the perspective of risks and opportunities. The research follows a qualitative methodology and uses document analysis and workshop methods for data collection. Verbal and written materials are organized into two major themes for thematic content analysis. The study shows that Istanbul has strong interaction and sharing with its thirteen neighbouring provinces. If Istanbul and these thirteen neighbouring provinces are considered and planned together under the umbrella of the Marmara city region with a holistic approach, the Marmara city region will soon transform into an assertive focal region and a dominant centre of attraction that manages/directs global flows of information, finance, people, goods and services. The Marmara city region needs a common vision with its integrated ecosystem, intertwined productionconsumption relations, and strong and competitive economic structure. The future prosperity of the city region depends on the creation of more intelligent, dynamic, innovative and diversified clusters with strong infrastructure in the industrial sector. For new industrial investments within the city region, it would be beneficial to focus on cities where outward migration takes place.</span> </p> 2023-12-29T00:00:00+08:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Journal of Architecture, Planning and Construction Management COMPARATIVE STUDY ON PLANNING LEGISLATION AND URBAN GOVERNANCE BETWEEN MALAYSIA AND TÜRKIYE 2023-10-20T18:37:18+08:00 Noor Suzilawati Rabe Izzul Haziq Rushdi Arif Mustaqim Shukri <p> <span class="fontstyle0">This paper discusses the comparison of the planning legislation and governance between Malaysia and Türkiye. Reviews from various literature indicate that Malaysia's development planning is primarily governed by the Town and Country Planning Act 1976, while for Türkiye, its planning systems of countries have evolved in two different ways: regulatory and discretionary planning systems. The organizational structures in Malaysia involve federal and local planning authorities, while Türkiye's planning is overseen by the Ministry of Environment and Urbanization and its various directorates and agencies. The study has found that the decision-making processes in both countries follow a top-down approach, but recent reforms in Türkiye emphasize public participation. Implementation mechanisms involve local planning authorities in Malaysia and various directorates and agencies in Türkiye. Based on the data analysis from applied document review and content analysis, this study concluded that there are significant similarities and differences. Both countries have comprehensive planning laws but with variations in implementation and public participation.</span> </p> 2023-12-29T00:00:00+08:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Journal of Architecture, Planning and Construction Management A REVIEW OF PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION FACTORS INFLUENCING TOURISM SECTOR IN KUALA LUMPUR AND ISTANBUL 2023-10-15T21:05:42+08:00 Syakir Amir Ab Rahman Alias Abdullah Tengku Farah Syahirah Muhammad Aiman Fahmi Betül Yaren Atçeken Hatice Kübra Saraço?lu <p> <span class="fontstyle0">The objective of this paper is to present a comprehensive review of current research endeavours in the intersection of tourism, transportation, and sustainability.

Community members' skills and experiences are incorporated into the decision-making process by incorporating community members' involvement in the planning process. Involving many parties is an attempt to encourage more people to participate in government and boost democracy's effectiveness. This paper attempts to determine whether the principles of Malaysia's 4th tier Micro planning are like what has been practiced in Türkiye. SCOPUS databases are used in the systematic review process to analyze the variety of publications in Malaysia's community-based planning context. According to the results, micro-planning in Malaysia is frequently carried out on a regional or neighborhood scale. However, this knowledge is neither well documented nor readily available to the public through academic databases. On the other hand, micro-planning projects in Türkiye show a systematic strategy aimed at local growth and improvement. These projects are generally developed at the grassroots level to meet the varied needs of different communities. Frequently, researchers worldwide are conducting communitybased planning studies to address local development barriers and foster more community engagement in decision-making processes.</span> </p> 2023-12-29T00:00:00+08:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Journal of Architecture, Planning and Construction Management GREEN INFRASTRUCTURE NETWORK (GIN) SOLUTIONS FOR A CONDUCIVE STREET NETWORK AT LOW-COST HOUSING AND THE NEIGHBOURHOOD OF UKAY PERDANA, ULU KLANG, SELANGOR 2023-10-02T10:05:58+08:00 Iffah Fadhilah Alambuaina Mazlina Mansor Putri Haryati Ibrahim Haza Hanurhaza Md Jani <p> <span class="fontstyle0">Urban green infrastructure includes the street network a green amenity for people. It comprises transportation corridors, a linear pedestrian network, and linear green areas and reserves. The streets serve as a vital network connecting various facilities in a housing area. Applying a green infrastructure network (GIN) will contribute significantly to housing areas, particularly in low- and middle-income communities. It can facilitate people's access to various locations in and around the neighbourhood, thereby fostering a healthy society. The paper analyses the conditions of the green infrastructure network (GIN) in the form of the street network of Jalan Ukay Perdana at Sri Impian Flat and its neighbourhood of Ukay Perdana. The street network selected for the study is within 500 metres of the flat and the surrounding neighbourhood. In addition to a literature review, the study employed spatial mapping, analysis, and site observation. The methods were utilised to identify and assess the streets as pedestrian and transportation networks within the neighbourhood. The existing elements and potential GIN were examined to give recommendations for GIN solutions for street networks in the housing area. The proposal is suggested to promote the local community's well-being in low-cost housing areas. </span><span class="fontstyle2">Keywords: </span><span class="fontstyle0">Green infrastructure, green network, street, pedestrian connectivity, affordable housing</span> </p> 2023-12-29T00:00:00+08:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Journal of Architecture, Planning and Construction Management
