Urban design involves place-making - the creation of a setting that imparts a sense of place to an area. This process is achieved by establishing identifiable neighborhoods, unique architecture, aesthetically pleasing public places and vistas, identifiable landmarks and focal points, and a human element established by compatible scales of development and ongoing public stewardship. Other key elements of placemaking include: lively commercial centers, mixed-use development with ground-floor retail uses, human-scale and context-sensitive design; safe and attractive public areas; image-making; and decorative elements in the public realm.

Uban Design practice areas range in scale from small public spaces or streets to neighborhoods, city-wide systems, or whole regions.
Urban design operates at 3 scales:

the region
city and town

the neighborhood
district and corridor

 the block
 street and building

Some of the best urban design comes from Italy
