Urban landscape: new tendencies, new resources, new solutions
"Urban design involves the arrangement, appearance, and functionality of towns and cities, with a particular focus on public space, including parks, squares, and gardens as well as public infrastructure and privately owned places. The design of these public spaces has become increasingly important to the long-term development and well-being of communities, and designers are concerned with the way these places are experienced and used, as their designs can provide towns and cities with a unique identity. Public spaces are outfitted with urban furniture that ranges in form, dimension, and function and covers a wide array of elements from the traditional park bench to innovative pedestrian crossings. To ensure the best quality and style, social and cultural developments are taken into account. As focal points, these elements will attract attention and create harmony and rhythm through color, form, and balance, but ultimately they are added to a public space to improve the quality of life of those using this urban space.
