    Special Issue on Urban Design


    Urban design is the process of designing and shaping cities, towns and villages. It deals with the larger scale of groups of buildings, streets and public spaces, whole neighborhoods and districts, and entire cities, with the goal of making urban areas functional, attractive, and sustainable. It utilizes elements of many built environment professions, including landscape architecture, urban planning, architecture, civil and municipal engineering.


    In this special issue, we intend to invite front-line researchers and authors to submit original research and review articles on urban design. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

    • Urban settings
    • City sustainable development
    • Urban planning
    • Architectural design
    • Public spaces and community establishment

    • Landscape design and land use
    • Smart city

    Authors should read over the journal’s For Authors carefully before submission. Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the journal’s Paper Submission System.
