|Title:||URBAN GEOMETRY AND MICROCLIMATE OF PUBLIC HOUSING PRECINCTS IN SINGAPORE||Authors:||BRENDAN CHEONG DEXIANG||Keywords:||Tropical Microclimatology Urban Geometry Ambient Temperature Warming/Cooling Rates, Southwest Monsoon, Singapore Housing Precincts||Issue Date:||2015||Citation:||BRENDAN CHEONG DEXIANG (2015). URBAN GEOMETRY AND MICROCLIMATE OF PUBLIC HOUSING PRECINCTS IN SINGAPORE. ScholarBank@NUS Repository.||Abstract:||Dynamic built environments impact their urban microclimates, creating heat islands when urban areas hinder dissipation of heat back into the atmosphere. Yet, buildings and streets have different urban geometries; heights, widths, orientation, and spacing in-between, influencing the microclimate between them variably. Singapore’s housing landscape is dominated by Housing Development Board (HDB) flats of heterogeneous designs and configurations, which have recently seen significant height increases, with some Build-To-Order (BTO) flats up to 50 storeys high.||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/143680|
