Green city, living city, sustainable city
London is a green and living city, filled with parks, canals, rivers and biodiverse wastelands between buildings, roads and railways. The metropolitan landscape can be perceived as a battleground between the man-made built environment and nature, which seeks to thrive regardless but is constantly under threat.
King’s research explores this juxtaposition between built and natural environments, seeking to inform policy and practice that secures London as a living and sustainable city that provides its inhabitants with the resources and spaces that they need to thrive. Our teaching in this area equips our students to be the city planners and environmental leaders of tomorrow, maintaining the biodiversity of London and protecting the urban environment so that London remains an attractive place to live and work.
