Thermal Environment Analysis Cases in Urban Planning and Design
Urban spatial form combines art with science. On the one hand, urban spatial form has certain artistic connotation. Urban form is presented in visual form, and contains the inherent attributes of public life and human culture; on the other hand, the urban spatial form is in atmospheric physical environment, and it involves a lot of scientific analyses as it is affected by meteorological changes and natural ecological changes. Most of previous researches and practices on urban spatial form are limited on artistic and planning professional level. Facing the challenges from climate and energy, the economic, social and environmental demands must be balanced during urban planning and design to realize real sustainable development and create humanized and comfortable urban space.
