What is urban design

From my perspective I think urban design is the planning and development of structures/ spaces within an urban condensed area. It involves the studying the area understanding the characteristics of the people how they get around and interact within the area. While also identifying any problems that may exist in the site and solving these issues through what we decide to design, construct, or maybe even demolish.

What is Urban Design

Urban Design is designing a neighborhood, town or city so that the structures have the capability to house a large amount if people per structure so that we can use minimal amounts of resources. it also has each person take up minimal space so that the structures don’t use too many resources when being built. It contrast with suburban life because the amount of space taken up per person changes drastically.

Urban Design is process of shaping the setting for life in cities, towns and villages; the art of making places; design in an urban context. Urban design involves the design of buildings, spaces and landscapes, and the establishment of a framework that can lead to successful development.  As opposed to focusing on one single structure, Urban design focuses on entire at once, to lay down a foundation for the structures to come.
