The Xiamen Energy Masterplan Model was developed with CHORA as part of the Taiwan Strait Incubator project. This portion of the scheme looks to establish Xiamen as the first “green” or energy efficient city in China. To achieve this the city commissioned an overall “Energy Masterplan” from CHORA which addresses this goal at a large scale through infrastructure and building projects, as well as local interventions by residents. The model looked to address the need to visualize individual projects in the context of the overall scheme to both educate the public and act as a planning tool for developers, designers, and city officials. This is achieved by combining unique animations in conjunction with detailed screen-based information.
