Dear Colleagues, This Special Edition addresses the theme of urban regeneration and sustainable urban development as a response to the impact of increased cities, which impose the need to control the boundaries of today's urban areas in a context that preserves the diversity and complexity of corporate globalization and the sustainability of life in urban areas.

spaces. The bioclimatic design of public space is a requirement to achieve sustainability in our cities, both in new urban development and urban retrofitting and regeneration. Various scales of design are covered: from the environmental conditions of the territory to the microclimatic scale.

Regarding the urban regeneration project in the Siwa Oasis, zero-energy development, bioclimatic architecture, eco-buildings and low carbon footprint.

For instance, the traditional Spanish hacienda design uses thick, thermally dense walls to retain heat or chill, thereby regulating temperature and creating a stable indoor microclimate, says Sam Kimmins, the principal sustainability advisor for the Forum for the Future, a global sustainable development organization based in London.

In the search for sustainable architecture, there is growing interest in the relationship between nature and design. In this vital new book, the term?bioclimatic?, relating to the dynamic between climate and living organisms, is applied by the authors in focusing on countries where housing requires cooling for a significant part of the year.3/5(1).

Ultimately, the sustainable design matrix framework can serve as a roadmap of issues that need to be addressed in sustainable urban design. Considering the increasingly wide breadth of disciplines applying sustainable urban design principles to their development projects, this framework can serve as a foundation for.

Full Description: "This book is an academic essay about the urban regeneration policies which have been changing the physical - and partly social - outlook of many English cities during the last years, eventually giving birth to a process which is also known as ‘Urban Renaissance’.

The main focus is on urban design: the way it has been promoted by the government as an. The development of a bioclimatic urban design methodology is described. The cluster thermal time constant (CTTC) model for predicting street-level urban air temperature variations is coupled with the wind-profile power law and the index of thermal stress (ITS.) for human comfort.

TheCTTC model and the power law produce the diurnal air temperature and Cited by: Containing the proceedings of the 9th International Conference on Urban Regeneration and Sustainability this set of books addresses the multi-disciplinary aspects of urban planning; a result of the increasing size of cities; the amount of resources and services required and the complexity of modern society.

These are employed and embedded in the creation of the R_Urban Intervention Dwelling model and tested on the Coop House design project. The result was an architectural design in which the Nine Principles of Regenerative Architecture are embodied through the application of the Place Analysis Criteria process.

Sustainable urban design appreciates the importance of creating carefully designed, humane and inclusive urban environments. Future urban areas are the settings within which many people will grow up, work and organize their lives and the role of holistic and responsible urban design can be crucial for sustainable urban development.

Hardcover, pages, $ Note: Sometimes listed with the sub-title “Contemporary Green Buildings”. Regeneration paradigm The foundations of regenerative development and design are based in the work done by the Landscape architect Ian McHarg that published in the book “Design with Nature”, pioneering a technology for ecological land-use planning founded on understanding natural systems.(Mang3, Reed, ).

Bioclimatic design help conserve resources while facilitating the use of the local climate around a dwelling to construct a green home or building that is passively sustainable. Some of the concepts of Bioclimatic Designs are, “Site and climatic analysis, design strategies that reduce or eliminate the need for non-renewable energy resources.

Sustainable Design of Green Logistics Management in China Based on sustainable development of green logistics in China and the countermeasures (), China is especially vulnerable to climate change due to its complex climatic conditions, a fragile ecological environment, a massive population and frequent natural disasters.

Urban tourism, as well as tourism in general, offers great economic opportunities, while at the same time, it increases the destination’s vulnerability to overcrowding and uncontrolled growth.

Tourism can and should support sustainable urban development. Sustainable urban tourism and energy efficient architecture are interdependent.

Urban design creates green, sustainable places Compact, walkable places are the most sustainable form of living. The combination of human scale urbanism, with a mix of uses and services, a range of housing options, extensive train systems, and the ability to walk and bicycle as part of daily life all make for sustainable, green living.
