English abstract:
This paper presents the results of a recent research
effort involving an actual urban development project
for the city of Vienna. The project developers
requested scientifically-based information concerning
future microclimatic changes in the development area
and their potential ramifications for the thermal
performance of the projected buildings. To address
this inquiry, simulation models were generated to
compute the buildings' thermal performance both for
the current and projected climatic conditions.
Thereby, alternative building designs (specifically,
various surface design options) were considered in
view of their mitigation effectiveness vis-à-vis
climate change projections. The results help
providing qualified evaluations of such building
design features.
