Abstract
The street is the interface of the Urban and Architectural scales. Designing the street is, hence a key issue in a global approach for the environment urban design. The street design influences both outdoor and indoor environments. Understanding how this happens and formulating recommendations to create the best possible urban microclimate, is the aim of this paper. Streets as considerable parts of urban open spaces have a significant role in creating the urban microclimates. As street geometry and orientation influence the amount of solar radiation received by street surfaces and also airflow in urban canyons. This paper discusses the current literature and evidence for the effects of street design on the urban microclimate with highlighting the impacts of streets geometry (H/W ratio) on solar access in an urban canyon. Researches conducted on this term have proved that street's geometry and orientation are key factors in providing a pleasant microclimate at pedestrian level in an urban canyon.
