Due to the harsh weather conditions and excessive level of urbanization in cities, urban planning in has focused more on automobile usage and less on people’s physical activity. This strategy has created an automobile-dependent society. As a result, walking has gradually decreased as a mode of transport. In addition, the phenomenon of rapid urbanization has also a negative environmental impact, including modifications on the urban microclimate and thermal comfort for peoples. This issue is to improve the dissemination of advanced research in the area of urban planning and its relationships with the thermal sensation of human and physical activity. Original research papers are solicited in any aspect of urban planning, outdoor thermal comfort, and walkability.

Aims and Scope:

  1. Develop better understanding of the relationship between urban morphology ,microclimate and physical activity
  2. Evaluating the physical parameters of urban morphology that may influence people’s subjective perception
  3. Understanding the activity of walking in the urban environment and trying to analyze the different aspects in which the built environment influences walking behavior and make one space more inviting and walkable than another
  4. Support urban design knowledge and contribute to the larger field of “walkability” by refining the methodsused to study the relation between walking behavior and physical environment
  5. Create guidelines for achieving the model of sustainable city
  6. Resolve the problem of climate modification
