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.
