Lisboa: Mapas Climáticos para o Ordenamento

Lisboa- Mapas Climáticos para o Ordenamento.jpg

O clima é um importante elemento do ambiente urbano; contudo, a qualidade do clima não é habitualmente tida em consideração no planeamento urbano e na promoção da sustentabilidade urbana e não existe ainda qualquer legislação sobre o assunto.

Reconhecendo a utilidade da investigação sobre clima urbano de Lisboa para a qualidade do ambiente, que tem sido desenvolvida desde a década de 80 no Centro de Estudos Geográficos, a Câmara Municipal de Lisboa decidiu apoiar o desenvolvimento de estudos que conduzissem à elaboração de linhas orientadoras para o ordenamento da cidade de modo a:

  • mitigar a ilha urbana de calor;
  • promover a ventilação;
  • melhorar a qualidade do ar.

Walkability & Measuring Urban Street Design

Walkability & Measuring Urban Street Design.jpg

Street design influences the feelings and decisions of the pedestrian. Beyond just the mode of travel, street design affects how attractive, and ultimately, how economically viable an area will be. Perhaps the most important element in the public realm, streets play an important role in creating and hosting the daily activity in our cities. It is important to understand how the elements of successful streets influence job growth, revenue, lifestyle, and the overall public perception of an area. Streets that facilitate walking have the power to create rich, welcoming, and memorable experiences for pedestrians.
