Urban Climate

[Translate to English:] Bildunterschrift 720#220

Urban heat island effect and climate change are topics that are becoming more and more relevant to the design of public space in cities. In various research projects, it is examined, to which aspects of this topic complex reactions are needed in future-oriented design. The focus is on mitigating further heating by vegetation, equipment and surface design, on the handling of heavy rain events, on the response of vegetation to climatic change, and on user practices in the context of sustainability. Test designs, carried out in conjunction with research and teaching, are a method of combining insights into a creative synthesis and visualizing them as visions.
