Abstract

The title seeks to provide a clearer articulation of urban design as a unique vocational applied discipline. The text delivers a precise articulation of applied urban design, providing a comprehensive reference work for readers to better appreciate the distinct practice of urban design and better understand how designers can champion and deliver contextually responsive high quality design solutions.

Split across three sections with 12 corresponding chapters, the book provides readers with a clear framework for both understanding and practicing applied urban design in a contextually responsive manner from initial appraisal to design delivery. This applied process is supported by a free e-learning resource, the Urban Design Toolkit, that engages and teaches the reader in relevant urban design techniques and software. In demonstrating their approach, the authors unpack the process via 'live' case scenarios in Denmark and the UK and provide a series of accompanying 'real-world' international urban design case studies alongside over 200 original graphics and visuals.

The title combines ‘why’ we design, with ‘how’ we design. The applied urban design framework acts as both scaffolding for practicing urban design, and a starting point for others to build on and engage with. It ends with a call for urban design(ers) to better consider context and the responsibilities of the profession in creating better and more responsive places and spaces.
