Abstract
In what direction is the historical debate on contemporary cities evolving, in this age of sustainability? How are renewable energies and solar energy in particular being incorporated into urban settlements? To date, researches mainly focused on urban density, while less attention has been paid to the spatial properties of the built environment. In this study, we compare the performance of urban fabrics of similar building intensity in Barcelona (Spain) to investigate the extent to which morphol...
