Urban design is a discipline, which considers how structures and spaces between them are integrated and shaped together to create a functional, attractive, memorable, comfortable, animated, and safe city. Some of the major elements of urban design are natural features—lakes, open spaces, vegetation–while other elements have to do with built environment, e.g., buildings, streets and street furniture, bicycles, automobiles, and buses.
It is the Arlington Urban Design Center’s goal to promote sustainable urban design. Sustainability, in simple terms, means something that will be cherished for generations to come.
