Urban Design (18)

As cities work to adapt to economic challenges as well as climate change, the design of our urban environments must be approached with a resiliency mindset that goes beyond addressing individual site design and explores systems that create larger scale benefits. Landscape architects play an important role in these complex, cross-professional efforts through comprehensive planning; prioritizing walking, biking, and transit; promoting healthy, livable communities; embracing equity and environmental justice; and designing for resilience.

Within this topic area:

  • CPTED and security design
  • Creating healthy and equitable communities
  • Environmental justice
  • Equitable community engagement
  • Public/private partnerships
  • Social data-driven design
  • Tactical urbanism
  • Urbanizing the suburbs
