In an era of smart cities, planning support systems (PSS) offer the potential to harness the power of urban big data and support land-use and transport planning. PSS encapsulate data-driven modelling approaches for envisioning alternative future cities scenarios. They are widely available but have limited...
Australian cities, especially the four big ones, are growing rapidly. Their growth enables many agglomeration benefits and creates many social and environmental impacts. This report examines new approaches to resolving how we can grow to create new opportunities for our children and grandchildren but at...
This publication offers thoughtful perspectives on how housing demand, diversity and affordability have changed in recent years and the resulting need for more diverse housing delivery.
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.
This report examines the long term economic viability of the Pilbara region. It gives an audit of infrastructure, policies, programs and initiatives, with a gap analysis of need and a comparison against other places in Australia and around the world.
This paper sets out to examine the prospect of transitioning the regional mining towns of the Pilbara (particularly Karratha and Port Hedland) into desirable, liveable and affordable cities.

This paper examines the early phases of a 21st century energy transition that involves distributed generation technologies employing low or zero carbon emission power sources and their take-up within Australia, with particular reference to the major cities and solar photovoltaics (PV). This transition is occurring...
Many car-dependent cities have major transit projects stuck in financial and economic assessment due to inadequate links between land use, transport, and funding. This has left most urban transport networks underfunded and requiring significant government support. During this widening transit funding gap, there has been...
UNSW Built Environment in partnership with the CRC for Low Carbon Living presents the audio recording from the seminar: "Low Carbon Research in the Wild West" by Professor Peter Newman AO, Curtin University. Professor Peter Newman AO – former NSW Sustainability Commissioner in Sydney and...
