Abstract: The Rooftop Greenhouses (RG) are one example of Building-Integrated Agriculture, offering a new dimension to our buildings, providing locally grown food that increase urban resilience. This paper relies on the analysis of a Rooftop Greenhouse, which is planned to be installed on an existing urban market, in particular its effect in the market indoor temperature during the summer period. The analysis is based on the building simulation of the real scenario and with the RG. A measurement campaign was performed to assess the thermal behaviour of the market shops and calibrate the model. According to the simulation results, the RG causes a reduction of the number of hours of overheating and thermal discomfort in the Shops when they are occupied.
