From the Publisher"This is a very thorough book, which … has applications for highly urbanised areas in almost any climate and should therefore prove to be of value to architects, developers, designers and policy makers involved in urban planning."
- Martin Liddament, International Journal of Ventilation
"The book discusses the transition from vernacular buildings to contemporary buildings in various tropical urban areas. The authors provide some very interesting examples of the often associated loss of consideration to local climatic conditions, in addition to suggested urban design strategies for contemporary buildings built in the tropics... I do recommend this book to those who are particularly interested in tropical urban climates." - Melissa Hart, Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society, April 2011
