Urban Design in the College of Architecture


As the name suggests, urban design is focused on the design of urban projects, cities and urban regions, including the two and three-dimensional physical arrangements of land subdivision and land uses, infrastructure, streets, highways, landscapes and buildings, in both public and private ownerships. Ultimately, urban design aims to design and build places that are environmentally, socially, and culturally sustainable, and that evolve over time to accommodate new people, new uses and new buildings. Although it is a specialized discipline, Urban Design shares academic and professional ties with Architecture, City and Regional Planning, Landscape Architecture and Civil and Environmental Engineering.
