Cooling Singapore at the Singapore-ETH Centre

Cooling Singapore is a project lead by the Singapore-ETH Centre, which was established by ETH Zurich and the National Research Foundation. The project seeks to tackle urban heat, known as the urban heat island (UHI) effect, together with government agencies and researchers from the Singapore Management University, TUMCREATE, Singapore-MIT Alliance for Research and Technology, National University of Singapore and Cambridge CARES.
The team is developing an island-wide digital urban climate twin (DUCT) of Singapore and ultimately, a set of climate-informed urban design guidelines. By furthering the scientific knowledge required for climate-sensitive design of the urban environment, the team seeks not only to improve residents’ comfort level outdoors, but also to enhance liveability and well-being of residents, and sustainability.
