Session 6H: Ground Plane Environmental Considerations

31 October 2017
11:15 AM – 12:45 PM

Tall buildings have an outsized impact on a city’s ground plane environment, and new techniques are being developed to understand the scope of that impact, and to develop ways to mitigate any negative consequences that a tower might have on a city’s ground plane. Particular emphasis is placed on the role of light pollution and overshadowing, and how those issues impact the city.
