Abstract: In an outdoor space, people are involved in many activities, like sitting, standing, playing, etc. They experience various sensations (Thermal Sensation, Humidity Sensation, Wind Sensation) while carrying out these activities. In order to continue these activities, they need to feel comfortable. To understand the behaviour of people in these spaces and in order to design comfortable outdoor spaces, it is very important to understand the microclimate of that place in detail. For that, it is necessary to understand two important factors as follows:- 1. Aspects of Outdoor Thermal Comfort 2. Landscaping elements that influence the microclimate of any place Both the factors work together to modify the microclimate of an outdoor space. To control different elements of the microclimatic parameters, like the Air Temperature, Relative Humidity, etc, landscaping elements can be used. Hence, with the help of these factors successful and comfortable outdoor spaces can be designed. The aim of this research is to review the influence of landscape in outdoor spaces and suggest landscape design strategies for the outdoor cafeterias in IITR (Alpahar and Bru) for comfortable thermal conditions. The cafeterias will be redesigned according to the derived strategies. To achieve this aim, the following objectives have been framed: �ï� �± To identify Outdoor Thermal Comfort (OTC) parameters and Indices �ï� �± To carry out evaluation of users�â� � response on OTC and to review influence of landscaping elements specifically for cafeterias in IIT Roorkee (Alpahar and Bru) �ï� �± To appraise OTC of selected areas through simulation (RayMan and Envi-Met)..
