Abstract [en]

To tackle climate change, pollution and dwindling resources, we need to rethink our urban environment by identifying the most suitable morphological structures, with an optimized local (cradle-to-cradle) approach to energy and resources; towards economic feasibility and improved environmental quality. In this paper we propose integrating the Transect concept with the energy issues, to provide a flexible system for allocating building types, landscaping, energy systems, etc. so that they contribute to a symbiotic ecosystem. This Transect framework can include a juxtaposed toolbox that can be used collectively at the region, city, sector, neighborhood, and block/building scale.
