Beat the Heat: A CBT Original Animation

In this newly produced video by CBT, we look at some of the most dire consequences of a warming planet for urban environments, and illustrate a series of innovative and layered strategies to mitigate the increasing Urban Heat Island effect (UHI). By approaching this threat to human health and urban quality of life through a multifaceted approach, we can thoughtfully improve conditions at all scales. CBT's Urban Design experts are deeply committed to city planning that reduces UHI and creates replicable solutions around the globe. For more, please see a recent interview with CBT Principal Kishore Varanasi by here, and one of our newest implemented climate-oriented projects here
