Download citation file:
Due to the environmental and economical concerns, sustainable morphological urban transformation has been brought into its own. This paper explicates a possible method of sustainable urban transformation design principles, through a case study based in Barcelona; this methodology aims to reform urban assessment, as well as to design new sustainable neighborhoods as an integrated part of the city. The paper demonstrates how one can transform a neighborhood into a lower energy consumption system, using the Integrated Modification Methodology (IMM). In this approach, the city is considered as a Complex Adaptive System; the research discusses how the urban system performance could...
