Transitional Spaces: The Role of Sheltered Semi-Outdoor Spaces as Microclimatic Modifiers for School Buildings in the UK Climate
(Supervisors: Simos Yannas, Rosa Schiano-Phan)
Field observations, extensive computer modelling and simulation studies combining thermal, airflow and daylighting analysis have provided design guidelines on how to achieve acceptable environmental conditions. These factors allow outdoor spaces adjacent to school classrooms to be used as extension of the teaching space without adversely affecting natural light and fresh air supply to the parent building.
PhD completed this year.
