Researchers at four UK universities are embarking on a five year low carbon engineering project that could transform the way cities are built as well as the way we live in them. The study, led by Birmingham University, will outline visions of an alternative urban future with drastically reduced CO2 emissions and develop radical engineering solutions to achieve them in a socially acceptable way. Research will closely link people's social aspirations and wellbeing with the engineering of cities. Professor Chris Rogers of the University of Birmingham's School of Civil Engineering, said: "Engineering of our cities has traditionally been a 'top-down' exercise, mainly because it's so very difficult to create a 'bottom-up' approach: solutions are created and society must either learn to work and live with them or choose to resist them. "Our research is novel in that we start by i...
