Urban Design Principles

When developing a master plan, a few points I would like to focus on are:

1. Circulation and ensuring all spaces are being used effectively.

2. Human scale and making the city/town/neighborhood work for the people.

3. Connecting neighborhoods with green spaces to join the two and encourage exploration and discovery.

4. Incorporating the natural environment in a way that does not disturb it.

5. Defining the city/town/neighborhood with natural elements as a way to draw people to all edges and incorporating these elements within the city as a guide to important locations.
