ENVI-met World Tour
ENVI-met invites you to visit megacities and smaller towns on different continents to try to answer the most important questions regarding the future of mankind: How can we realise our need and desire for more recreational space, less urban overheating and density in light of the effects of climate change?
We will answer these questions by monthly showcasing architects that have analysed the existing urban districts in metropolitan areas all over the world, looking at quality of life for its inhabitants and vegetation and also make suggestions on how the experience of living in these cities could be improved.

With ENVI-met, we help create more liveable cities for people, in balance with the natural environment. While sustainability is often perceived as protecting the environment at the cost of meeting people’s needs, this does not have to be the case – and we can prove it with scientifically verifiable figures.
Since its founding in 2014, ENVI-met GmbH has been committed to understanding the dynamics of local environments to enable sustainable urban design. We use ENVI-met simulations to research and quantify the effects of architecture and urban planning on the microclimate of outdoor spaces.
