Top 10 Indicators of Good Urban Design

There are so many things to consider when designing a city- but when considering urban design specifically, here are what I believe to be the top 10 indicators of a well-designed place (in no particular order):

1  A Space Becomes a Place

2  Built on the Past

3  Connected to the Landscape

4  Expect the Unexpected

5  Mix and Match

6  Cohesion, Not Uniformity

7  Economically Viable

8  Equitable and Inclusive

9  Environmentally Conscious

10  Focus on the People, Not the Car
