Abstract: The purpose of this study is to develop a design support tool by combining a thermal environment simulation with a luminous environment simulation for urban outdoor and semi-outdoor living spaces. In order to evaluate thermal and luminous environments in parallel, a radiation transfer simulation algorithm with high-resolution mesh model was developed. The results of the application to an area containing membrane structure buildings confirmed that this simulation tool is capable of examining this trade-off between thermal and luminous environments.
