ArTeS: Architecture, Technology and Sustainability 2023-07-25T16:08:39+00:00 Jesus Hechavarria Open Journal Systems <h1>About the Journal</h1> <p><strong>Architecture, Technology and Sustainability</strong> (ArTeS) is a Journal International by the Faculty of Architecture and Urbanism of the University of Guayaquil, created in January 2022. It is a publication with international coverage that disseminates advances in knowledge about the <strong>use of technologies and the application of computer systems</strong> to enhance the <strong>decision-making process</strong> in research, <strong>development, and innovation</strong> projects from an academic/scientific perspective. The journal aims to publish original contributions of high quality, proposing inter and multidisciplinary approaches. ArTeS journal is aimed at students, professors and researchers interested in the search for sustainable solutions in Architecture and Urbanism.</p> The Management of Building Industry Knowledge 2023-05-30T18:52:46+00:00 Jose Rolando Torrech Jr. <p>Due to the information-centric nature of the architecture and construction sector, knowledge management has been implemented. However, there are several obstacles to implementing knowledge management (KM) in the construction industry because of the prevalence of outdated methods. Therefore, methods must be developed to address inefficiency, boost KM, and combine technological advancements with creative thinking. Such methods are critical to improving KM's efficiency and laying the groundwork for future success. With the use of cutting-edge technology and creative thinking, this research analyzed the most effective models and procedures for knowledge management in the building and construction sectors. The study employed a descriptive research design and a qualitative technique. Content analysis was used to decipher responses to open-ended questionnaires. The findings call for the implementation of both organic and mechanized approaches, as well as software systems, building information management (BIM), digitization, and the blockchain. Due to the ever-changing nature of knowledge management, it is essential for companies operating in this industry to continually strengthen their internal resources and adapt their approach.</p> 2023-04-30T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Jose Rolando Torrech Jr. Study of the territorialization of citizen insecurity as a territorial component in Guayaquil, Ecuador. 2023-07-04T19:58:11+00:00 Derly Tamara Ramirez Aguilar Maytte Ivonne Revilla Espinoza <p>Insecurity as a structuring component of the territory has developed in Ecuador as deficient management since instruments of public policies and citizen control are not used. In the present research work, the situation of the City of Guayaquil case study is evaluated, and the level of insecurity in the polygon indicated between Av. De las Américas, Av. Kennedy, Av. Delta and Av. José Santiago Castillo. The study analyzed the possible causes of insecurity, among which is the lack of police units in the area. The methodology is oriented towards the qualitative and quantitative analysis of the problem using participant observation. In addition to a comparative study of the level of insecurity depending on the type of crime. Finally, the mapping of urban voids, police points, and public lighting that indicates the areas was developed using the ArcGIS software. It is concluded that insecurity is most frequently found at night, in areas with less presence of urban activity, for which strategies must be used to increase the level of security by and for users.</p> 2023-04-30T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Derly Tamara Ramirez Aguilar, Maytte Ivonne Revilla Espinoza Mitigating Environmental Pollution Through Planning Strategies Urban in the Vicente Paul Sector. 2023-07-07T14:11:33+00:00 Diana Fernanda Zarate Zavala Katherine Yamile Almache Carranza Karla Cristina Fajardo Zavala David Gabriel Jiménez Alvarado Denisse Adriana Morocho Zambrano <p>Environmental pollution is a phenomenon that affects the quality of life of living beings and ecosystems on planet Earth; currently, the Vicente Paul sector of the city of Guayaquil presents various problems of environmental pollution, &nbsp;mainly because of informal trade, lack of green areas and poor waste management; in turn,&nbsp; These problems are triggered by the absence of equipment necessary to meet the needs of users. The objective of this study is to design an environmental mitigation plan to improve the quality of life of the inhabitants of the sector. A quantitative methodology was used to calculate the percentage of existing green areas in the study area through the use of the ArcGIS program. In addition, a visit to the sector was made to identify the causes of pollution to develop later a comparative analysis based on the 12 Criteria that Determine a Good Public Space.</p> 2023-04-30T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Diana Fernanda Zarate Zavala Analysis of the urban green index of Guayaquil as a project georeferencing bioclimatic model 2023-07-18T19:44:54+00:00 Tais Romine Cabrera Domínguez Fabiana Maythe Salcedo Hernández <p>The urban green index as a determining factor in the quantity and distribution of green areas in urban areas and that is established as a condition for the quality of life of citizens, throughout the accelerated urbanism of the city of Guayaquil has been maintained due to of the 3 m2 per inhabitant. The objective of this scientific article is to determine by georeferencing maps the quantity, quality and thus generate a bioclimatic model determination contemplating solar impact factors, shade redistribution and microclimate. A quantitative methodology is used using graphic techniques and a method of georeferencing by zones to determine hot zones for their new redistribution. In conclusion, it is obtained that the urban green index improved the conditions of permanence due to shadow effects in 60% of the surveyed users and that the bioclimatic model contributes to the increase of 3 m2 per inhabitant of urban green area.</p> 2023-04-30T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Tais Romine Cabrera Domínguez Design proposal for urban regeneration in a tourist zone in Bahía de Caráquez. 2023-07-25T16:08:39+00:00 Joel Arturo Hidalgo Zambrano Pedro Steban Becerra Arteaga Darwin Jack Durán Guayacondo Ariel Andrés Sánchez Chiriboga <p>This research is based on the investigation and analysis of the current perception of the city of Bahía de Caráquez in the canton of Sucre, Manabí, on the subject of plans that help urban renewal and provide a broad vision of how good planning can improve the quality of life of the inhabitants of the city, giving greater priority to pedestrians and the existing biodiversity in the green areas that are in a state of neglect and without care. The urban plans seek to increase tourism in order to reactivate the economy of the area, which is why we want to create a strategy or urban regeneration plan that helps both the population and the city, so that both benefit and change this vision of the city. These processes include physical, economic and social interventions, which are carried out in a participatory and sustainable manner, with the aim of generating a stronger and healthier community. Therefore, urban regeneration is an opportunity to transform urban areas into more livable, safe and attractive spaces, promoting a culture of citizen participation and responsibility in local development.</p> 2023-04-30T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Arturo Hidalgo
