The world is increasely urban. Since 2008, more than half of the world’s population is living in urban areas, and the number of urban residents is expected to continue to grow. The expanding urban population will require a whole range of infraestructure, services, housing and (of course) land.
Urban Planning is the public forethought and concious involvement preceding the pursuit of communty-determined action; achieving social goals for the common good in both the public and private domain. Urban planning is a great opportunity to expand or to improve our cities. With this process, we control the use of land and other physical resources, and the design of the urban environment. It requires lots of strategic thinking, analysis and management. It can be of several types: Master plans, strategic plans, comprehensive plans, etc.
A socially balanced construct for economic growth, incorporating social wellbeing and environmental equilibrium, is established as the logical future course to follow in urban planning.
Once the planning has finally been set, Urban Development Projects must be carried out, in order to give an aesthetic and appealing look to the open space (street, parks, etc).
These projects are about creating a vision for an area and the deploying of the skills and resources to realise that vision, and should be taken to mean the relationship between different buildings; the relationship between buildings and streets, squares, parks and waterways and other spaces which make up the public domain and the patterns of movement and activity which are thereby established; in short, the complex relationships between the elements of built and unbuilt space. The physical public realm in which these kind of projects are carried out include everything that can be perceived (seen, smelled, heard or touched) from places to which everybody has right of access.
