Dissecting Urban Heritage Morphology as a Response to Microclimate

Publication Date Jun 17, 2022


This chapter discusses the historic areas that are living habitats that grew before the science of architecture and urban design happened in a formal way. In the case of the Kampung Kauman neighbourhood area, the area is a result of an agglomeration of residents with similar job types as Batik makers. However, the district was designed by an indigenous Javanese planner or Kalang who has a responsibility to design and build the area. The method used a combination of computational climate simulation to investigate outdoor spaces, surface radiation. Further, this chapter conducted an ethnographic study qualitatively through field surveys. The results captured people's activities at different times during the day. The results also indicated that most of the Javanese buildings can consider climate as responding to buildings and public spaces. The concluding remarks identified the relation of the urban morphology from indigenous Javanese culture with people activities through spatial investigation.
