Description & Coverage
Description:

The creation of metropolitan areas is influenced by a wide array of factors, both practical and ecological. They can also be influenced by immaterial characteristics of a given area.

The Handbook of Research on Perception-Driven Approaches to Urban Assessment and Design is a scholarly resource that assesses metropolitan development and its relation to the ecological and sustainability issues these areas face. Featuring coverage on a wide range of topics such as user-centered urban planning, perception of urban landscapes, and thermal comfort in urban contexts, this publication is geared toward professionals, practitioners, researchers, and students seeking relevant research on the effective planning of metropolitan areas and their relation to the ecological and sustainability issues that face such areas.

Coverage:

The many academic areas covered in this publication include, but are not limited to:

  • Perception of Urban Landscapes
  • Performance and Visual Perception
  • Smellscapes
  • Social Interactions
  • Soundscapes
  • Thermal Comfort in Urban Contexts
  • User-Centered Urban Planning

Editor/Author Biographies
Francesco Aletta got his MArch and PhD at the Second University of Naples. He has been Research Associate at the Acoustics Group, School of Architecture of the University of Sheffield (UK), since 2013, working on soundscape descriptors and indicators. Since 2016 he is working at Ghent University, Department of Information Technology within the WAVES research group. Since 2016 he has been appointed as Editorial Board member of the Frontiers in Psychology journal (Environmental Psychology section).
Jieling Xiao is an architect, urban designer and lecturer in Environmental Design at School of Architecture and Design, Birmingham City University. She got her MArch in Urban Design from the Bartlett School, University College London. She completed her PhD at the Department of Urban Studies and Planning, University of Sheffield, exploring smellscapes in intermodal transit spaces in the UK and China. Her doctoral study generated a framework of interpreting, evaluating and designing smellscapes in intermodal transit spaces. Jieling’s research focuses on theories and practices of place-making and environmental design through people’s sensory experiences, particularly sounds and smells. She is on the Editorial Advisory Board of Journal of Contemporary Urban Affairs.
