The Gateway to Zero Carbon City:

Due to the city’s impact on climate change, the issue we investigate is how to design the future city towards Zero-carbon, minimizing operational energy demand and the possibility of production of energy through renewable resources. With this target, we put the lens on the question of how to design the urban morphology (novel urban form and building typology) through a generative approach to deal with potentially contradictory correlation among morphological compactness, building solar optimization, and green space distribution, and thus achieve the significantly improved design outcomes that aim at minimizing building energy demand/carbon emission and enhancing the potential of renewable energy generation.
