The study of urban wind environment involves many disciplines, and each discipline should have a clear focus and research content. For architecture and urban-rural planning, the correlation between urban wind environment and architecture and urban space form should be an important research perspective. Existing research has confirmed that the urban wind environment is directly related to the texture of the city, the geometric shape of urban street space, architectural form and layout change, and gives some indicators. Based on the existing research, this chapter further discusses the correlation between urban wind environment and urban space forms according to the experiment model and the simulation results of the wind environment in Xinjiekou central area of Nanjing.
