By M. Santamouris

either the quantity and percent of individuals residing in city components is transforming into quickly. as much as 1/2 the world's inhabitants is anticipated to be residing in a urban via the tip of the century and there are over one hundred seventy towns on the earth with populations over a million.

Cities have a huge effect at the neighborhood weather and require huge amounts of strength to maintain them functioning. The city surroundings in flip has a huge effect at the functionality and wishes of constructions. the scale, scale and mechanism of those interactions is poorly understood and techniques to mitigate them are not often implemented.

This is the 1st accomplished ebook to deal with those questions. It arises out of a programme of labor (POLISTUDIES) performed for the store programme of the ecu fee. Chapters describe not just the most difficulties encountered resembling the warmth island and canyon results, but additionally a variety of layout ideas that may be followed either to enhance the power functionality and indoor air caliber of person constructions and to examine elements of city layout that could lessen those climatic effects.
The publication concludes with a few examples of cutting edge city bioclimatic buildings.

The undertaking was once co-ordinated by means of Professor Mat Santamouris from the college of Athens who's additionally the editor of the publication. different contributions are from the college of Thessaloniki, Greece, ENTPE, Lyons, France and the college of Stuttgart, Germany.
