Abstract: Buildings with a lift-up design may have a number of impacts on the pedestrian-level gust wind and thermal environment. Based upon the earlier wind tunnel tests that identified some building configurations that resulted in the lowest wind speed zones, a 3.5 meter-tall open ground floor was added to each of the three configurations, and scale models of the three designs were studied in a wind tunnel to assess their influences on airflow and ventilation around the buildings. Undesirable thermal discomfort due to strong wind conditions is identified in the results, and their practical implications are discussed.
