Urban Ecology

Urban Ecosystem based planning and design is a fundamental approach to improve quality of life and environmental performance in cities.  One of them is increasing biodiversity as well as improving ecosystem services. Understanding and intervening at local as well as systemic level via urban ecosystem restoration strategies and design can transform existing cities into Ecocities. From spatial principles to site specific design, spatial quality and spatial experience.
