Having introduced all the ingredients we look into to achieve a zero carbon life, the next step is to integrate them into the city and apply them to building forms.

We illustrate ways to achieve this, and to build low carbon at high densities in this section...

Different typologies need different low carbon constructional systems


ZEDfactory has masterplanned on various scales, in different countries, with different climates. Each masterplan is a combination of climate, client requirements, local housing markets, current and projected demand and budget. The end goal for all of our masterplans is to produce a place which meets the needs of today's population, without inhibiting the needs of tomorrow's population.
