Retrofitting of Communal Open Spaces Towards Climate Comfort: case study mega block in New Belgrade
Keywords:comfort, communal public space, mega block, quality, transformation
The focus of the research is mega-block in New Belgrade built in 1960`s, before and after transformation. The aim of research was to compare the parameters of bioclimatic urban design before and after the intervention. The results show decrease due to shading and evapotranspiration of 1°C to 2°C, in the central part of communal open space and increase of temperature along the edges of the blocks, where new buildings were built, as well as the incasement of vaporization. Analyze of two options of urban design (before and after intervention) done with ENVI-met virtual simulation shows that the outdoor comfort of transformed communal open space deteriorated.
