AbstractThe Asia–Pacific region has gone through fast-paced urbanization while the impact of climate change has intensified. Many cities in the region are fighting the imminent climate crisis threatening their development and people’s living environment. As the interface between sea and land, coastal cities urgently need to deal with carbon dioxide emissions to mitigate future impacts and regenerate the urban environment. This chapter takes Singapore as a case study to discuss the effects of urban design guidelines on the spatial quality of urban resilience in the context of climate change and to generate a prototype of a carbon–neutral city in future urban development. It considers nature-based and adaptive design control of urban systems to improve the resistance in response to extreme climate at multiple scales, from the district to the urban block. It is proved that climate-resilient urban design can effectively respond to extreme climate change in coastal cities and fundamentally alleviate excessive carbon emissions through spatial integration at multiple scales, even reaching a carbon–neutral contribution in the future.
