Design and Thermal Diversity of Semi-enclosed Spaces
This book explores the link between urban form and its environmental characteristics, considering the urban microclimate not as an homogeneous environment but as a variety of particular conditions that enable diversity of occupancy. More specifically, it investigates the relationships between intermediate, semi-enclosed urban spaces and their thermal performance. Different outdoor urban spaces create a network not only of aesthetic and morphological variability but also of environmental variability.
