Bioclimatic urban design is a perspective on urban design fuelled by the belief that it is possible to mitigate urban climate problems through design and, thereby, actively contribute to a better mediation between man and climate. Bioclimatic urban design expands the scope of common urban design with the inclusion of design measures targeted at climate-resilience. This leads to including specific methods and tools, and looking at common urban design elements through a different lens. This book chapter presents an overview on what bioclimatic urban design is, on its fundamental goals and methods.
