  • Introduction

    Architecture design and urban development is providing a huge effect to the current living environment. Facing to the environmental challenges such like the depletion of natural resources, the deterioration of indoor and outdoor air quality, human thermal comfort and aging society, architecture and urban designers are required to carry out the design that combined with the consideration of related technologies. From the view of sustainable architecture design, Researches related to sustainable building evaluation and technology development are focusing on individual buildings. For sustainable urban design, the environmental effects from building layout and building facade design, as well as vegetation planting should be evaluated. Therefore, sustainable development has to be carried with consideration and discussion in various levels and process of the urban expansion.
    The aim of this special issue named Sustainable Architecture and Urban Design is to gather researches for solving the comprehensive environmental problems and trying to break the barriers among different design fields.

    Aims and Scope:
    Sustainable architectural design and technology
    Architecture energy consumption
    Indoor environmental evaluation
    Urban geometry design
    Urban climate change
    Sustainable society and urban planning
