Climate sensitive Urban planning
- The district layout, resulting from a design competition, was elaborated further, based on the project's climate findings.
- A guideline on climate-sensitive planning was developed for the district's realisation process.
- A smart street network and southwest/southeast-facing building orientation has reduced full sun exposure time and extended shade periods.
- The allocation of open spaces within the overall block structure was adjusted to improve the district's air ventilation, resulting in major cooling effects.
