Transforming the City Towards Low Carbon Resilience – YouTube

€œTransforming the City towards low-carbon Resilience introduces urban design principles that support the transformation of existing cities towards more resilience regarding the impact of climate change. Steffen Lehmann – Professor, University of Portsmouth/Founder of s_Lab Space Laboratory for Architectural Research and Design (Sydney – Berlin), bases the lecture on his research in sustainable cities’ transformation and introduces the compact, mixed-use and walkable city model as the most promising urbanization type. The lecture outlines the principles of Green Urbanism and two ongoing research projects: (1) Urban microclimates: How to keep cities cool; (2) Low impact construction using prefabricated engineered timber systems.
