Special Issue Information

China put forward the “double carbon” scheme in 2020, which aims to achieve peak carbon dioxide emission in 2030 and carbon neutrality in 2060 for the country. A recent report by International Energy Agency (2022) illustrated that the built environment already accounted for 40% of global carbon emission, within which the building industry and construction of infrastructure contributed significantly. Given these circumstances, there is an urgent need to critically evaluate current development practices and explore low carbon and regenerative approaches to enhance adaptability and resilience of the dwelling systems on earth. This special issue provides a platform for discussing emerging innovative thoughts, concepts, technologies, materials, dwelling models, infrastructure typologies, as well as policies that enable dwelling systems to be adaptable and resilient at macro-, meso-, and micro-scales. This special issue encourages submission of research papers related but not limited to the following themes:

  • De-carbonization planning methods
  • Urban form and heat island mitigation
  • Green buildings and low-carbon technologies
  • Artificial intelligence-aided design methodology
  • Adaptive blue-green infrastructures
  • Vernacular technologies and modern implications
  • Nature-based Solutions
  • Machine-learning and community governance
