Az éghajlatváltozás hatása a közterületekre és a közterületek építészeti megoldásaira
We have recently experienced hot summers all over the world due to climate change. People in Central-Eastern Europe, in particular, have never met such extreme climatic conditions in the past. Therefore, cities weren't built to withstand this weather. Although there are numerous solutions for internal spaces, such as cooling systems and thermal insulation, there are still no effective solutions for open spaces, which is why open public spaces are deserted on a hot summer day. So, the question is: how can we turn these public squares back into our liveable and familiar spaces?
People have lived in such extreme climates in other parts of the world for a long time. They employed various solutions in their buildings, bazaars, public gardens and outdoor spaces. In the Middle East, there are various strategies for high-efficiency cooling in open spaces in hot weather. In this research, I examine historical architectural features found in warm cities of Iran. I collect specific and conventional solutions that rely on traditional building culture and can be applied at other locations.
The research aims to find new solutions for the countries of Central-Eastern Europe by inspiration from the traditional Middle Eastern solutions. My expected results are to define a new set of tools for the mentioned climatic challenge for using them in the design of new open areas.
