Urban Design Definitions

Europe

“Urban design is the art of creating and shaping cities and towns. It involves the arrangement and design of buildings, public spaces, transport systems, services, and amenities. It is the process of giving form, shape, and character to groups of buildings, to whole neighbourhoods, and the city. It is a framework that orders the elements into a network of streets, squares, and blocks. Urban design blends architecture, landscape architecture, and city planning together to make urban areas functional and attractive.”

“Urban design involves the arrangement and design of buildings, public spaces, transport systems, services, and amenities. Urban design is the process of giving form, shape, and character to groups of buildings, to whole neighborhoods, and the city. 

It is a framework that orders the elements into a network of streets, squares, and blocks. Urban design blends architecture, landscape architecture, and city planning together to make urban areas functional and attractive.

Urban design is about making connections between people and places, movement and urban form, nature and the built fabric. Urban design draws together the many strands of place-making, environmental stewardship, social equity and economic viability into the creation of places with distinct beauty and identity.

Urban design is derived from but transcends planning and transportation policy, architectural design, development economics, engineering and landscape. It draws these and other strands together creating a vision for an area and then deploying the resources and skills needed to bring the vision to life.”

“Urban design may be defined, in value terms, as ‘the activity which involves manipulating spatial form configuration and marshalling the corresponding multiple stakeholders` values to deliver acceptable spatial configurations and achieve acceptable value configurations.”

“Urban Design is the art and science of creating and shaping cities, towns and metropolitan area. It involves the arrangement and design of building massing, public spaces, transport systems, services, and amenities. It is the process of giving shape, character and organising the relationship of parts; groups of buildings, street layout, parks, waterways and other spaces, movement and activities, the values which make up the public realm, to whole neighbourhoods, and the city to make urban areas valued by communities and stakeholders.”
