2019 Sime Darby Sustainability Seminar

Kody Kato presented “Biophilic Masterplanning” at Sime Darby’s Sustainability Seminar on the 24th of September 2019. He addressed the importance of six design factors:

1. Keep as many existing trees as possible (cutting down trees destroys animal habitats that have been there for many years; and releases carbon that has been stored in those trees into the atmosphere)

2. Design with the existing terrain (reduce earthwork and excavation)

3. Provide alternative modes of transportation

4. Design from the experience of the user

5. Enhance thermal comfort at the street level through computer simulations and analyses

6. Connect people to nature within and around the existing site
