Abstract:The rapid expansion of cities not only accelerates the speed of economic development in China but also causes problems such as the pressure of carbon emission reduction and poor living environment. Low-income group, as the most vulnerable ones in the whole society, is the most direct bearers of the consequences of pressure. Focused on the living conditions of the low-income, the dissertation studies the open public space of affordable housing, explores its carbon emission and social benefits, and provides a new perspective for the quality evaluation of affordable housing.
This study researches the relationship between the open public space of affordable housing and carbon emission by utilizing literature research, data collection, software simulation, field research, and questionnaire survey. On this basis, it reveals the correlation between the open public space of affordable housing, the needs of the low-income, and carbon emission, expecting to provide new ideas for the design of affordable housing. Besides, nowadays, with the emphasis on emission reduction, this study can promote the transformation of residential design from the context of energy consumption to carbon emission to some extent.
After literature review, this paper first simulates the physical and social carbon emission impacts of the open public space (open roof, open vertical garden, and open ground floor) of affordable housing in Shanghai, aiming to reveal the emission reduction potential of open public space for the long-term operation of affordable housing. Then, detailed prototype research is done to open public spaces to find out the good layouts. After that, preliminary design strategies for open public space in affordable housing are put forward. Finally, a new affordable housing design is done on a specific site in Shanghai, and its carbon emission is calculated.
The dissertation shows that open public space not only reduces carbon emission but also plays a significant role in realizing the needs of low-income groups. Besides, it can also give guides and prototypes to the design of open public space. It is hoped that this study can provide a new perspective for the design of affordable housing and some references for the establishment of relevant government norms.
