The research was aimed at developing design models and strategies for improving residential neighbourhoods by addressing current public health concerns and has a specific focus on China's superblock residential developments. Through the use of associative modelling, evaluation and design, the project integrated a range of important health considerations into neighbourhood block models that offered a wide sample of possible neighbourhood designs that could be analysed (offering findings on what design operations could influence health indicators) while also offering immediate design templates and knowledge for designers.
