Urban design and sustainability

Urban architecture

Urban design is the process of designing and shaping the urban environment. It seeks to create sustainable urban environments with long-lasting structures, buildings and a great standard of living for its inhabitants. Sustainable development is work which meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.
