Urban design

Urban design is related to urban planning, but deals at a more fine-grained scale. It may include the arts of civic design and elements of architecture.

Urban design tends to suggest a serious collective concern for three-dimensional space and as much consideration for the public areas between or beneath buildings as for the buildings themselves. This would imply an understanding of microclimate, the durability of materials, practicality of maintenance and the wishes of likely future users.
