Introduction

Following the success of the previous editions launched in 20162018 and 2019The 4th International Conference “Green Urbanism (GU)” will be held this year (2020) in association with Roma Tre University, Rome, Italy.

Green Urbanism, as a broad term, strives to minimize the usage of energy, water and several other resources in a bigger attempt to create a sustainable city which operates in many layers that include the design of public and private spaces, circulation, services, and imposing a more efficient and approachable lifestyle. In contribution, IEREK organizes this conference to provide clear insights on the many layers that are required to recognize “Greens” to the city’s urban fabric in order to be operated more sustainably.

The 4th version of the Green Urbanism conference, therefore, discusses the importance of green urbanism for cities’ sustainable development. It aims to link the concept of sustainability to the available natural resources with innovative approaches to energy efficiency, as well as provide green solutions to problems and challenges our world still faces.

A stepping stone towards a better environment is driving cities towards green urbanism, especially, since there seems to be an increasing demand to restructure existing cities, to make them more compact, through mixed-use and polycentric ideologies. Green urbanism combines the work of engineers, urban planners, economists, transport planners, architects, and everyone in between, in hopes of improving the relationship between mankind and its environment.

There are several principles that are applied and associated with Green Urbanism including climate changezero waste citiessustainable transportation, mixed-use, and efficient spaces. Strategies for cities in developing countries and other several principles will also be discussed and presented in the proceedings of this upcoming conference.

In this regard, IEREK is consistently organizing this series with the theme of Green Urbanism in order to deal with cross-cut issues in architecture and urban design with the goal of touching on the different aspects that are associated with the ways to reach harmony and functionality. For instance; the advancing technologies in energy systems, green transportation systems, waste and water management, and passive and active strategies into contemporary urban design towards the improved environmental performance of our cities taking into consideration the conservation of its ecology system.

The significance of this conference lies within the pressing need for incorporating the principles of sustainability into the urban design processes and the general need for sustainable development which will be of particular relevance to the rapid urban growth of developing cities.

Your Trip To Rome, Italy

Rome stands as one of the finest and oldest cities in the world. The history of Rome spans over 2500 years and it has been a centre of power, politics, culture and development since its inception. Creation of the city is steeped in legend and mythology and there are various different accounts of how this majestic place was built. Various Roman emperors and Casers have ruled mighty Rome and this is the place where the colossal Roman Empire grew from.

The following are some suggestions of places to visit while you are in Rome, Italy.

  1. Colosseum

This mighty structure is one of the most renowned and iconic landmarks in the world and a trip to Rome would not be complete without visiting the Colosseum.

Also known as the Flavian Amphitheatre, the Colosseum was constructed between 70-80 AD and at its peak was estimated to hold 80,000 spectators.

  1. St Peter’s Square

Rome holds a small country within a country – The Vatican.

This independent state is one of the most important religious sites in the world and St. Peter’s Square is an iconic place where many significant events have taken place.

Located at the front of the Vatican state, the square is actually circular and is framed by two huge sets of colonnades – Standing on these columns are beautiful statues of various religious figures and previous popes.

  1. The Pantheon

The mighty Pantheon stands as one of the best preserved ancient Roman buildings in the world and is one of Rome’s most famous attractions.

Constructed in 118 AD by emperor Hadrian, the building that stands today was actually built on the site where an earlier temple stood that was commissioned by Agrippa.

  1. Trevi Fountain

There are not many other fountains in the world as lavishly decorated and sculptured as the Trevi fountain.

Constructed in 1762 by Nicola Salvi, the fountain pays tribute to the Roman God Oceanus who can be seen riding his chariot pulled by Tritons and taming several Hippocamps.

The detail of the sculptures is simply wonderful and the whole facade and fountain are a true work of art.

  1. Sistine Chapel

Part of the Vatican museum complex, the Sistine Chapel is one of the most renowned religious chapels in the world and has a stunning amount of detail and iconography.

Situated in the Apostolic Palace in the Vatican City, the Sistine Chapel was extensively restored in the 1400’s and the place where the papal enclave takes place – It is here that a new pope is selected.

The Sistine Chapel is particularly famous for its extensive and detailed decorations including the Last Judgement fresco by Michelangelo and the ceiling artwork.
