Abstract—This study introduces and discusses approaches to optimizing the urban development by undertaking applicable modelling techniques and simulations that can guide and develop design as well as city planning criteria. This research paper will explore the available techniques and then suggest integrated methods to optimizing the urban. With focus on sustainability and the built environment, this study will analyze two practice-based case studies in the context of China and will suggest models for optimizing the urban. This paper will set a platform to argue and potentially use modelling techniques for such projects as a breakthrough towards future urban management and urban-scale construction projects. Through case study analysis in China, the paper suggests ways in which simulation and modelling techniques, particularly information modelling techniques, can inform better design. Furthermore, optimization of the built environment is the foremost argument of the paper, emphasising on environmental concerns and how we may find integrated solutions to overcome these. The current problem in urban planning is the lack of optimization and integration of multiple aspects of sustainability for the built environment. As a result, this study will explore this and contribute towards development of integrated solutions for better optimization of the built environment.
