The Impact of Natural Factors on the Process of Housing Architecture Design in Contemporary Cities


The aim of this work is to systematize the knowledge about natural factors that affect the designed housing environments in modern urban spaces. The work will discuss natural factors: climate, climate change, existing vegetation, surface waters and landforms. The impact of presented factors on architecture design will be supported by examples of contemporary residential projects. By confronting the knowledge gained from theoretical works with the design practice, it was possible to perform in-depth analyses of the problem. The conducted non-reactive research, i.e. content analysis and desk research method, proves that natural factors have a significant impact on the quality of the designed residential building. Taking these factors into account when designing residential environment can significantly improve the quality of life of its inhabitants.
