Exploring Urban Microclimates

Workshop, in French, 7 March 2009

Members of the Montréal collective SYN-atelier d’exploration urbaine present a workshop investigating urban microclimates in downtown Montréal. Caused by particular conditions in urban construction, microclimates are environments that have surprising temperature variations — a building courtyard that is several degrees warmer than the street or a windy alley many degrees colder. Workshop participants explore habitable microclimates and discuss how urban design can accommodate winter conditions.

In conjunction with the exhibition Actions: What You Can Do With the City (2008), the CCA hosts a series of workshops devoted to public actions in urban environments and their impact on contemporary society.
