This paper analyzes 12 city plans that were developed based on environmental-sustainability indicators using a multi-agent model. The plans are based on three city forms and four types of city scenarios, each representing a different planning concept. The environmental indicators concern pollution from transportation, while the sustainability aspects relate to accessibility to facilities. The model supports planners in identifying the best city form considering the selected performance criteria. In this case study, a compact city form, coupled with mixed land-uses, performed best.
