Edidiong Ukpong currently is a PHD at the Department of Architecture, University of Uyo. Research interest is in Daylighting, Architectural sustainability, architectural education, traditional architecture, indoor environmental quality, energy efficiency, post occupancy evaluation, building performame
In recent years, the concept of post occupancy evaluation (POE) of building performance has attracted much attention globally, because of its benefits in enhancing future design decisions. However, developing countries give little or no concern to the practice of improving design outcomes using POEs. In Nigeria, buildings are rarely evaluated once...
Experiment, being one of the methodologies applicable in research, has not been given appropriate attention in architecture unlike other disciplines such as education, psychology and sociology. This may be connected to the view that architecture is a core design discipline with little interest in research writing and its multidisciplinary nature wi...
Across the globe, the corollary of Green Cost Premium (GCP) obstructs the implementation of Sustainable Buildings (SB). Extensive studies into GCP proliferate, but the research norms rarely traversed theoretical contexts of GCP. The purpose of this paper was to explore the drivers of GCP from the contexts of the prevailing practice of SB using the...
Due to the inadequate attention given to daylighting in lecture rooms in tropical wet and dry climate, this study, using field measurement, evaluates combined daylighting strategies in three lecture rooms labelled LLH, BMS and ANB with distinct bilateral glass louvre windows, window floor ratio, orientation and shading strategies. It determines the...
Abstract. Sustainable design strategies focus on architectural design considerations which assures the welfare, in addition to cohabitation of inanimate elements, and existing creatures that constitute the ecosystem. Sustainable architecture for public spaces, in addition to energy efficiency and zero greenhouse gas emission, needs to adopt approac...
The subject of sustainable architecture has gain global prominence over the last couple of decades, as the global population continues to grow; there is also a corresponding increase in the need for shelter which in turn impact on the environment. The concern therefore is no longer just the provision of shelter, but providing it in a sustained mann...
With the rise in remote learning, global competitiveness and collaborative world characterized by deployment of information communication technology (ICT) in all spheres of learning and practice, architectural students often find themselves at the pivot of dualism constrained by impeding factors existing as an outcome of past and present contrastin...
The application of daylighting in green affordable housing movement is as a result of its affordability, availability, energy efficiency, high performance capacity and great health impact and this has been established in the present work. Its application is one thing, but the other matter worthy of architects' concern is the burgeoning variables th...
To investigate the effectiveness of daylighting strategies in lecture rooms in university of uyo, in order to improve the indoor learning environmental condition.
