Stefan Al awarded grant for research on sustainable urban form / by Stefan Al

Penn’s Office of the Vice Provost for Research has awarded Stefan Al a competitive grant from the University Research Foundation (URF). Al will analyze existing high-density urban blocks in order to propose urban design guidelines to shape rapidly developing Asian cities in a sustainable way. His proposal, Sustainable Urban Form: A Comparative Analysis of Asian High-Density Blocks, looks at how a deeper understanding of urban form can contribute to creating sustainable cities that promote a high quality of life, equitable public realm, and optimal environmental performance.
