Heatwaves are a stark reminder of how important it is for urban planners to design ways to deal with the Urban Heat Island Effect. Biophillic design incorporating: green roofs, living walls, and green facades on our concrete and glass buildings in inner cities are critical for our future. Green roofs, green facades, and living walls greatly cool and improve air quality in cities making the people that live and work there healthier, happier and more productive.
