our team

Urban Microclimate is a multi-year effort by the Building Technology Program at MIT to predict local effects of urban morphology and geometries on thermal comfort and energy consumption. The effort includes a measurement campaign, tool development and explorations of the influence of urban microclimatic effects on building design and urban planning decisions.
