Aims/Description: With the risk of climate change and the growing urbanisation of cities it is essential that we design cities in such a way as to reduce the impact on the local climate. This module will give you an understanding of the fundamental processes which result in alterations to the local climate in cities followed by best practice design approaches to reduce the impact on the climate. This will cover consideration of heat, wind and pollution. You will develop your understanding through lectures, seminars, case study reviews and through design. Related topics such as soundscapes will also be discussed.
Restrictions on availability: Only available to students registered on CIVU21 and CIVU31.
