How can we contribute to the world of Urban Design? 

We are a group of young Urban Designers who are passionate about designing healthy places which benefit the environment and communities. Urban Design is a multidisciplinary subject, drawing on a variety of disciplines such as Architecture, Landscape Architecture, Geography, Ecology, Sociology and Psychology. It considers the built environment as well as the spaces in between buildings and examines the relationships between people and these places. As Urban Design students we believe we can positively contribute to the subject by creating sustainable, effective and people centred designs which are appropriate to the contexts of their locations. As a cohort we aspire to contribute to the study and meaningful discussion of current and future trends in Urban Design, including its contribution to creating a more sustainable, healthy, and economically successful future for our cities.

Urban design is the design of towns and cities, streets and spaces. It is the collaborative and multi-disciplinary process of shaping the physical setting for life – the art of making places.

Urban design involves the design of buildings, groups of buildings, spaces and landscapes, and establishing frameworks and procedures that will deliver successful development by different people over time.
