Mustafa Chehabeddine Discusses Building Healthy Cities at the Prince’s Foundation

The KPF Principal presented “Building Healthy City Regions” for University of Oxford MSc students at the Garrison Chapel in London.

Mustafa’s presentation provided insight into the tools used by KPF to achieve optimal design solutions, illustrated by some of the firm’s most innovative projects such as One Vanderbilt in New York. KPF’s in-house technology experts, KPFui, use advanced data analysis to identify ways to improve urban environments, optimize planning, and drive tailor-made performance solutions.

Senior Associate Tutor at the University of Oxford Dr. Matthew Hardy chaired the panel alongside Mustafa and Ms. Lita Khazaka, Founder and Managing Director of Studio LK. The presentation was followed by a Q&A session, with topics raised by the chair and student participants.

The MSc in Sustainable Urban Development is a course developed in collaboration with The Prince’s Foundation and the University of Oxford. Following its success over the years, this session has become a popular feature within the course and introduces students to sustainable urbanism, as an interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary subject at both the city and regional scale.
