Study of the Interrelationship between Urban Micro Public Space Morphology and Microclimate
In high-density cities, large scale public spaces are becoming more and more precious and scarce. As a complement, micro-public space is an important indicator to measure the quality of urban lives because of its flexible location and convenient accessibility. The geometry prototype enclosed by architectural groups and texture elements as important urban morphology factors are extracted and simplified in this paper to analyze the interrelationship between micro public space morphology and the microclimate. Through the simulation of actual research projects in Shanghai, the accuracy of the simplified model is verified. The spatial and temporal distribution of microclimate is directly related to outdoor thermal comfort. It means that the correlation analysis can not only achieve multi-objective optimization to reduce urban design uncertainty, but also can provide design strategies for healthy urban environment.
