Liveable and climate sensitive urban environment


  • Kristina L. Nilsson


We meet several global challenges as climate changes, growing elderly population and urbanisation. We as architects and planners have to consider several aspects to meet these challenges. For the climate change we have both to decrease the strains from the urbanisation and adapt it to the predicted influences. The urban area has to be design in a universal way to include all inhabitants. We also have to make the urban built environment to be functional
and appealing to give the physical possibilities for all inhabitants to have an accommodating and sustainable way of living and  transportation. And, what are the pros and cons of these aspects in cold, snowy and icy conditions.
