Title: Investigation of potential bioclimatic Interventions for a Portuguese City
Issue Date: 2009
Abstract: Contemporary urban renewal is particularly aimed at pedestrianising the cities' public spaces. But encouraging people to use a public space is also about ensuring that the impact of climate change and the additional effects' of the urban heat island are controlled in summer. Considering a global strategy for the improvement of the urban environment with regard to thermal comfort outdoors and the reduction of CO2 emissons, is therefore crucial. The correlation between morphologic and climatic parameters can play an important role in this issue especially in solid urban structures. This article demonstrates how this correlation occurs in two spaces in Porto while exploring a potential methodology for a bioclimatic urban interventions.
