Research teams from three internationally leading universities are working together to establish a rigorous urban assessment tool kit, applicable from the neighbourhood to the city scale. The tool kit will be used to appraise the energy and carbon performance of existing and innovative urban development typologies. Findings will contribute to the development of practical policy and design guidelines, which will be tested in case studies by policy makers and developers.
The core project teams include:
Tsinghua University: Qizhi Mao, Jie Zhang, Lei Shao, Yang Jiang, Yang Xie and Yang Yang
MIT: Dennis Frenchman, Chris Zegras and Cressica Brazier
The project outputs are reviewed in project workshops - in Cambridge (firstname.lastname@example.org).), Beijing ( ) and Cambridge, Mass (September 2013). For more information related to this web page, please contact Dr Ying Jin (
