This book includes nine chapters presenting the outcome of research projects relevant to building, cities, and construction. A description of a smart city and the journey from conventional to smart cities is discussed at the beginning of the book. Innovative case studies of underground cities and floating city bridges are presented in this book. BIM and GIS applications on different projects, and the concept of intelligent contract and virtual reality are discussed. Two concepts relevant to conventional buildings including private open spaces and place attachments are also included, and these topics can be upgraded in the future by smart technologies.
