Abstract

The green zones like model of infrastructure in the urban development toward the sustainability F. Gomez*, L. Montero*, J. Jabaloyes* & P. Salvador^ Department of Architectonic Constructions, Architecture School, Polytechnic University of Valencia, Valencia, Spain *City Council of Valencia Abstract This work analyses certain influences of climatological variables on the city, as well as the main interactions between green spaces and the environmental parameters which form the urban environment. Several comfort indices were used in different parts of the eight districts most representative of the urban complex. The formulation of these indices was statistically correlated with the green zone areas, in order to find out the surface area of these areas that the city should have in order for this to be considered theoretically comfortable. The scenario for the study was in all cases the city of Valencia (Spain), taken as a prototype of the Mediterranean city. 1 Introdu
