Towards green design guidelines for thermally comfortable streets

Research output: Contribution to conferenceConference paperAcademicpeer-review

Abstract

Creating thermally comfortable streetscapes is a rather new challenge for urban designers in The Netherlands and other countries with moderate climates. This is due to the lack of evidence based design guidelines. By combining research methods from micrometeorology and landscape architecture, we work on the development of such guidelines. For that purpose, we investigated physical and psychological impacts of street greenery on thermal comfort in three street types with varying vegetation density.
