Peter Newman from the CUSP institute discusses six principles of resilient cities: renewable and distributed energy, sustainable mobility systems, inclusive and health cities, disaster recovery, biophilic urbanism and a more cyclical and regenerative metabolism.
The share of prefabricated modular residential buildings in the Australian construction market is growing mainly because they are quicker to erect on-site than traditional construction, and often cheaper; but how about their carbon footprint and more particularly their thermal performance? To bring some light on...
Large-scale green urbanism in cities and their bioregions can help to reduce stress on planetary boundaries and the biosphere due to human consumption patterns.

Within the majority of the literature on sustainable transport, it is accepted as ideal to arrange new urban growth in close proximity to major public transit services. While the literature on this subject of transit-oriented developments (TOD) is positive and optimistic, for the most part...
Monitoring household energy and water usage can provide valuable insights into building performance and occupant behaviour. The monitoring of building parameters such as temperature, relative humidity and carbon dioxide levels can also be used to inform building management. Additionally, when coupled with data feedback display...
