Envisaging a world with greener cities.

A team of MAGIC researchers has been back at our test site in Elephant and Castle, carrying out a number of experiments to enhance our knowledge about the processes involved in natural ventilation. See what they found out...

Our most recent MAGIC Partners meeting was a great success, with over 50 participants taking part in the discussion about natural ventilation.  Speakers included Stephen Inch from the GLA, Brett Ormrod from Foster and Partners, Jim Mills from Air Monitors and Stuart Cunningham from AirLabs. All this on top of updates from our researchers on MAGIC experiments and modelling. To see the presentations and learn more about the day click here
