Summary "An Urban Approach to Climate-Sensitive Design brings together the emerging literature on climate-sensitive urban design and places it in a tropical context. The physical processes behind changing urban climate are clearly illustrated. The book presents a general background to the environmental issues facing tropical building designers - energy consumption and comfort implication of buildings and an overview of microclimate changes brought about by urbanization. New ways of looking at urban design are presented from a climatic design perspective."--BOOK JACKET.
