Seminar: Designing for Urban Climate Adaptation

Inspired by the presence of a well-known expert in the field, Prof. Robert D. Brown (Guelph University, Canada), we will host an expert seminar that deals with landscape and urban design for climate adaptation on the 25th of April 2013. Such adaptation requires evidence based design methods that take the physical, but also psychological issues of people’s thermal sensation into account.
