About the Project

This project aims to gain new and in-depth understanding of urban tree – built environment interactions. It will be carried out in the context of prevention of summer overheating and creation of comfortable outdoor and indoor living environments for city dwellers. Particular attention will be paid to how trees and buildings interact with solar energy and urban heat. The project will provide useful guidance to building, landscape and urban designers for effective integration of trees in cities, supporting the practitioners in a range of decisions including tree species selection, tree arrangement, and appropriate urban forms.
