Abstract: Extensive urban development in high density cities may lead to increasing of urban air temperature and heat island index. Urban morphology parameters of canyon geometry, sky view factor (SVF), surface material reflectivity (albedo) and greenery affect air temperature generated within urban canyon, besides the initial role of local climate condition. Singapore is an example of high density city in hot humid climate region which experiences extensive urban development with many high rise buildings are constructed due to the limited land area. This comparative study investigates the effects of low rise and high rise developments' urban morphology towards air temperature generated in Singapore's commercial area by implementing an air temperature prediction model. Geographic Information System (GIS) platform is utilized to generate a temperature map which is used for detail analysis.
