Urban liveability : the climatic dimension
This chapter considers how the climatic impacts of urban form can enhance or reduce the quality of urban life, drawing valuable lessons from the experience of a city that deliberately studied the behaviour of its local weather systems and learned how to manage them through physical planning. (Please note: The title of the chapter varies between what is listed in online resources and what appears in the hard copy of the book - the hard copy title is 'Towards a Liveable Urban Climate: Lessons from Stuttgart')
