The heat in tropical urban environments has long been a concern for planners of new towns and modern areas in older towns; both from the perspective of comfort and in consideration of the energy usage involved in cooling buildings. Thus, this thesis focuses on the optimum cooling effect in combination of vegetation with ground surface albedo modification at street level in mitigating urban heat island (UHI) in Persiaran Perdana, Putrajaya, and the consequent benefits towards outdoor human… CONTINUE READING
