The methodology of applied climatology in planning and building

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

In recent years there has been an increasing awareness and trend to integrate climatological elements in planning and building. The awareness of planners, architects and decision-makers of environmental problems and of the need to improve the quality of living necessitates the integration of climatological factors in planning and building. In this article a methodology is represented which enables the planner and architect, in a systematic way, to integrate the different climatological elements in all levels of planning, from regional planning through settlement planning to the design of buildings. The methodology, which is also represented by a flowchart, is divided into five stages, each one consisting of several subdivisions.
