A THREAD on heat.
A personal view on how cities should react on #ClimateChange and #heatisland effect.
Most important is proportion. The hotter the climate the narrower the streets are. There are reasons why streets around the mediterranean are narrower than they are typically in germany.
There is an unlucky proportion where the buildings are not narrow enough to provide shade but too close together to let the heat radiate away at night. It depends on orientation, latitude, weather at night. Not easy. Historical streets have mostly good proportions by trial.
