Abstract: This thesis is an investigation into the intervention of plants in a built environment. Buildings, Climate and Plants are considered the three indispensables which are closely related to each other and form a unique Buildings-Climate-Plants system in a built environment. A conceptual model and two hypotheses were proposed by the author to understand the complicated nature of the interrelationships between the three indispensables. Two hypotheses have been validated at both macro and micro levels through many quantitative data obtained from a series of background studies. A final deliverable, green sol-air temperature, was developed to predict the intervention of vegetation in the conflicts between buildings and climate at the micro level eventually.
