ABOUT US 關於我們

The CUHK Sustainable and Environmental Design Group was established in 1999 since Professor Edward Ng joined CUHK. It is based at the Chinese University of Hong Kong in Hong Kong.  We investigate the sustainable and environmental design of buildings and urban spaces with a particular focus on sub-tropical high-density urban environment. Research focuses on projects associated with the effect of urban morphology on microclimatic conditions as well as outdoor thermal comfort within complex urban settings. Research findings contribute to the formulation of design tools and good practice guidelines for the benefit of professional practitioners in the field of architecture, urban planning and design, public health and human well-being. The studies have been conducted in Hong Kong, Macau, China, The Netherlands, Singapore, etc.
