Abstract

This paper presents a method for the development of a spatial model for thermal comfort as a mechanism for the design of differentiated resilient urban space. Sixty-four existing thermal comfort indices have been identified and reviewed and their parameters mapped in order to identify those which are spatial. Eleven spatial parameters have been established, analysed and quantified in order to develop a new thermal comfort index, and future methods for developing a spatial model are discussed.
