Abstract

With the development of urbanization, China’s cities meet the restriction of resource and environment. UNEP releases the report ‘Towards a green economy’, which mentioned Green City is the direction in city’s development. From the perspective of full development of the city, using Building Information Modeling for urban planning and urban management can make city ecological and humane, also breaking the situation that urban planning studies are uncorrelated with the ecological studies. Based on these theories, the paper takes the practice of urban renewal in Chongqing as an example. The two simulated models of different layouts are evaluated and analyzed, and then the comparison of evaluation results such as the index of sunshine, ventilation and energy consumption is obtained. The paper proposes some suggestions on the advancement of planning scheme and exerts practical significance on the relevant index quantification for urban planning and management, which is valuable and practical during the fast urbanization period of China.
