Design guidelines for development of open spaces in urban environment

Design guidelines will be produced for the development of open spaces, in the form of "best practice" guides. These will be useful for the design of sustainable open spaces with emphasis on the comfort of the users, for all professionals related to the design of open spaces, architects, urban designers, planners, etc.

Additionally, they can be employed by Municipalities and other public authorities as a guide for the design of redevelopment of open spaces. Such advise will also be useful for professionals coming from different disciplines, such as engineers, or even physicists, biometeorologists, and all professions working with urban climatology and the urban context, and whose decisions can influence the urban microclimate. Furthermore, this will be translated to different languages from the different contractors for effective exploitation and acceptance by municipalities and the wider public.
