Lecture9 Urban micro-climate change and the challenges


日期: 2020-11-24 点击:


The large scale and high speed urban development is changing the urban typology in big cities of China. The micro-scaled urban planning and the building layouts are leading to distribution of population density, urban surface variation, and urban roughness variation, which caused the urban environmental problems such like urban heat island and urban air pollution. How to balance the urban functional planning for supporting the economic development and the environmental impacts from urban design is the challenge for urban planners and policy makers. This lecture introduces examples about environmental urban planning in different cities, and discuss about the application of theories of sustainable urban developments.
