RESPONSIVE + GREEN Urban Built Environment (R+G UBE) Lab is an interdisciplinary research group encompassing highly talented researchers with diversified fields of studies related to the responsiveness and green performance of urban built environments. It is currently based in Auckland, New Zealand; Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia; and Toronto, Canada. R+G UBE Lab, with its cutting edge research focus at both building and urban scales, targets to contribute to the sustainable development of future cities.

The current research undertaken by R+G UBE Lab concentrates on four core themes: 1) Urban Greening 2) Sustainable Built Environments 3) Integrated Design & Parametric Simulation and 4) Building Information Modelling (BIM). The following research areas demonstrate the current focus of the lab: 

  • Building Science, Building Performance & Climate-Responsive Built Environments

  • Architectural Design, Integrated Technology & Computational Modelling/Simulation

  • Building Information Modelling (BIM) & Integrated Design Process

  • Urban Sustainability and Future Cities Planning
