  32. 32. WHY IS OUTDOOR WINTER DESIGN IMPORTANT?
  33. 33. WHY IS OUTDOOR WINTER DESIGN IMPORTANT? ECONOMY January temperature is the leading indicator of depopulation in U.S. cities. Retail and dining districts suffer from decreased foot traffic and perceived inactivity during winter months. HEALTH Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) is a mood disorder associated with changing seasons and can take on many of the same symptoms of depression. SAD affects 10 -20% of the national population. CULTURE A climate-responsive city offers greater opportunities for social inclusion and expression of authentic local character.
  34. 34. PROBLEM Representations and design strategies in architecture and urban design are often dominated by idealized imagery from warmer seasons, marginalizing the unique design opportunities that winter weather cities present. This absence of relevant examples and formative discourse demands a call to action. vs. Public Square | Field Operations Rendering Public Square | Plain Dealer Winter Photo !
  35. 35. The Center for Outdoor Living Design (COLD) curates a growing archive of compelling visions for cold climates intended to challenge common perceptions and kindle an appreciation of urban life in all seasons. COLD is dedicated to improving livability in cold weather cities by inspiring design professionals, city officials, business owners and local residents to creatively engage the built environment year-round.
