The paper reports on a study to explore the feasibility of environmentally less harmful, more compact patterns of spatial urban structure for a city in South Korea, Kwangju. For this task a transport simulation model is combined with a multi-criteria environmental assessment model. The transport simulation model calculates link loads in the road network based on the spatial distribution of residences, work places, schools and shops in 142 traffic zones of the metropolitan area. The environmental assessment model calculates environmental impacts resulting from link loads and actual driving speeds with respect to the spatial distribution and intensity of land uses in the zones using a geographic information system. In the paper the model design, in particular the environment submodels developed, and the results of scenario simulations will be presented.
