The Bartlett School of Planning research in urban design reflects four broad themes, which you can explore below. As researchers work across and beyond the categories, some projects could be placed in multiple themes.
Urban design governance
The practices of state intervention in the means and processes of designing the built environment, and the planning, development, regeneration and conservation processes to which they relate.
Public space and morphology
The streets, spaces and local infrastructure of the city, their physical form, and how they are designed, managed, connected, and used over time.
Society, economy and urban design
The influence of urban design on social interaction and behaviours, and how the economic and social value of place is mediated by the built environment.
