The contemporary debate on sustainability issues is recently focussing its attention on the climatic analysis of urbanisation models and the relationship between urban form and the city's energy performance and livability.

Often neglected, urban form bears intrinsic qualities that can determine the success or failure of energy-related, economical and social policies.

This book explores this deep relation, reflecting upon the role of environmental knowledge and conscience in the design of cities: the place par excellence for human life.
