    We are pleased to present the latest edition of the International Journal of Environment, Architecture, and Societies (IJEAS), Volume 4, Issue 1 for the year 2024. Within the pages of this journal, we explore topics encompassing the fields of environment, architecture, and societies. Our focus spans from design, planning, and building technology to urban and settlement studies, history, arts, research, and education.

    The Volume 4 Issue 1 addresses a theme: Dynamic Synergy of Sustainable Future for Environment, Architecture, and Societies. For this issue, a selection of five titles has been made with thoughtful consideration. They are: Quantifying Fire Risks in Pontianak for Future Planning and Development; Assessing Thermal Comfort Parameters in Public School Buildings for Tropical Areas: A Study of Teacher’s Lounge of SDN 27 in North Pontianak; Blue Urbanism: An Insight of Navigating Climate Change in Humid Tropical Cities in Brunei Darussalam; Pedestrian Priorities: Unraveling Walkability Challenges in Shah Alam’s Neighborhoods; Privatization and Social Relations: Meanings of Women’s Land in the Modern Indigenous Society, Taiwan. The papers were submitted by authors from Brunei Darussalam, Indonesia, Malaysia, dan Taiwan.

    The first article investigates the quantification of fire risks in Pontianak, aiming to develop strategies for future planning and development. The research emphasizes the importance of proactive measures, such as equipping homes with fire extinguishers and enhancing accessibility, to mitigate risks and bolster urban resilience. The second article focuses on assessing thermal comfort parameters in public school buildings in North Pontianak. Through computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulation and observation, the study formulates indicators to improve thermal conditions, such as adding heat loads and optimizing ventilation. In the third article, the concept of “Blue Urbanism” is explored as a response to climate change challenges in humid tropical cities like Brunei Darussalam. The study proposes adaptive strategies, inspired by Brunei’s historical urban planning over water, to mitigate the impacts of rising sea levels and increased precipitation. The fourth article investigates walkability challenges in Shah Alam’s neighborhoods, particularly focusing on Persiaran Bestari. The findings highlight the importance of pedestrian-friendly infrastructure in fostering walkable neighborhoods and reducing reliance on vehicular transport. Lastly, the fifth article delves into the privatization of land ownership among the Truku people in Taiwan and its implications on gender relations. It examines the conflicting perspectives between traditional customs and modern legal frameworks, shedding light on the social dynamics and land reclamation movements within Truku society.

    We extend our sincere gratitude to the authors for their unwavering dedication and scholarly contributions, which have enriched our understanding of these critical fields. As you peruse through these abstracts, we hope you will find inspiration and insight that propel further exploration and discourse. It is our aspiration that this compilation serves as a catalyst for new discoveries, innovative solutions, and collaborative endeavors in our shared quest for knowledge and understanding.

    Thank you for joining us on this journey of discovery, and we look forward to the fruitful discussions and advancements that will undoubtedly ensue.

    We are pleased to present the latest edition of the International Journal of Environment, Architecture, and Societies (IJEAS), Volume 3, Issue 2 for the year 2023. Within the pages of this journal, we explore topics encompassing the fields of environment, architecture, and societies. Our focus spans from design, planning, and building technology to urban and settlement studies, history, arts, research, and education.

    The Volume 3 Issue 2 addresses a theme: Heritage Discourses and Multidimensional Exploration of Environment, Architecture, and Society. For this issue, a selection of five titles has been made with careful consideration. They are: Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) Photogrammetry for Heritage Building Documentation: Case Study Sasaksaat Train Station, Bandung, Indonesi; Exploring of Minangkabau Local Knowledge Management in Agam District, Indonesia: A Preliminary Study; Power Over Architecture: A Case Study on Malay Sultanate Palaces in West Kalimantan During Colonial Period (1800-1949 AD); Pioneering Architect in the Construction of Post-Colonial Irak: Rifat Chadirji and His Monument Designs; The Evaluation of the Indonesian Government Authority in Managing the Border Area of West Kalimantan-Sarawak. The papers were submitted by authors from Indonesia, Austria, Malaysia, and Turkey.

    The first article introduces a case study employing unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) photogrammetry to document heritage buildings, specifically the Sasaksaat Train Station in Bandung, Indonesia. This research highlights the importance of preserving historical sites and demonstrates how the UAV technology enhances the archival process. Another article delves into local knowledge management within the Minangkabau community in Agam District, Indonesia, shedding light on customs, culture, and traditions that construct the community’s identity. A subsequent study comprehensively explores the influence of power on the architecture of Malay Sultanate Palaces during West Kalimantan’s colonial period, revealing the intricate relationship between power dynamics and architectural design through historical analysis. The subsequent paper examines the role of architecture in constructing a postcolonial Iraqi national identity, particularly the impact of architect Rifat Chadirji’s work on representing the nation’s history and ideals through architectural structures. Lastly, an abstract evaluates the Indonesian government’s management of the border area of West Kalimantan-Sarawak, emphasizing the challenges presented by these regions and advocating for collaborative efforts to enhance the welfare of residents.

    These abstracts collectively demonstrate the richness and depth of research within the fields of the environment, architecture, and societies. We commend the authors for their diligent efforts in contributing to the scholarly discourse and fostering a deeper understanding of the intricate relationships between these domains. We hope this collection of articles inspires more isolated exploration, discussion, and advancement in our shared pursuit of knowledge.
