“Dense and Green Building Typologies: Architecture as Urban Ecosystem”
Urban design and architectural benefits explores typological strategies that mitigate negative effects of high density.
Economic benefits examines the role of dense and green building typologies in land value appreciation.
Design strategies integrates all work packages to develop innovative approaches to high-density architecture and urban design.
The research as a whole explores how dense and green building typologies can play an important role in the development of compact yet highly liveable future cities in Asia and around the world.
