Abstract

A case study based on the re-development of an important part of Timisoara shows that morphology plays an essential role for any energy-saving policy, urban efficiency, quality of life and, generally, for any sustainable urban environment. This project based on the innovative IMM® methodology applies a multi-layered design approach working in the areas of energy, water, urban green spaces, mobility, landscapes, natural resource management, participation and social cohesion. In terms of sustainability, the study defined the main catalyst for nowadays most profiting urban changes – transportation; emphasizing the transposition from “driving – in” or car dependent society to “green moving – in” concept of bicycle and public transport dependence. Furthermore applying this in a domino effect style the paper elaborates a thorough program for smaller scales such as district sustainable development. The research set the opportunity to incorporate a wide range of issues to improve the metabolism of the city as well as its livability, and energy performances.
