Abstract

This chapter serves as our conclusion, reflecting on what has been covered in the book. In this final chapter, we further explore the concept of eco-development in China with a comprehensive SWOT (strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats) analysis that highlights what China faces in the current stage of development. These will refer back to some of the ideals of the future that we highlighted in the previous chapter. In what follows, we also raise some questions of interest for future research on the areas of sustainable city, sustainable community and green building development in China. Moreover, we further explore consideration of the interplay between various spatial levels that we have discussed throughout the book. Finally, we provide a summary of pathways to achieving a sustainable built environment from the consideration of all three spatial levels in the built environment.
