Urban design: Enhancing the experience of the city

Urban design is the art and science of designing and shaping cities, towns and even villages. The objective of the entire process is to make urban areas functional, attractive, and sustainable. Urban design integrates various aspects like planning and transportation policy, architectural design, development economics, engineering and landscape and then draws these and other strands together to find a vision and then successfully deploy the resources and skills needed to bring this vision to life.

Focusing on integrating technology, landscape and, urban life and ambience, the urban design may ensure economic and environmental sustainability. A good city considers the important relationship between buildings and the beauty of the city as a whole. It may be, thus, concluded that the outstanding urban designs are those that are not only visually stimulating, but are also sensitive and respectful of their surrounding developments and environment.
