Cities are growing. With that comes challenges. Urban flooding and fire fatalities being some of them. Intense rainfall overwhelms the capacity of the drainage systems in cities.

Urbanization and sustainable megacity

With good design and materials, rapid urbanisation can be sustainable.

Urban Regeneration

Rundown or challenged neighbourhoods often face multiple social problems combined with health problems for the people living in inadequate buildings. At the workshop experts discuss how we through urban regeneration can design energy renovation projects to help solve some of these problems.

Cities that save water

Fresh water is our most precious resource. But extreme weather and fast-growing cities mean that unless we take measures to manage it more actively, it could also become scarcer.

Acoustic capabilities

From railways to tramways, roads to airports, good infrastructure is crucial to urban life, which can be very noisy. The resulting ground-borne vibration, traffic noise – and not to mention human noise pollution – all have a serious and negative impact on our wellbeing, especially in densely populated areas.

Moving buildings

Beautiful architecture makes us feel better. The emotional impact of beautiful buildings can transcend the personal, even to the extent of improving the communities we live in.

Robustness

In land-scarce urban areas, more and more people are working and making their homes in high-rise buildings. These structures can be brilliant solutions to the challenge of safely housing a growing population.
