About the Track:

The Urban Design track solicits papers that examine the planning, design and development of the urban environment. The track addresses diverse urban design practices (including design, strategy, governance, visioning, regulation, and development) and concerns (including livability, walkability, health, resilience, heritage, regeneration, informality and place making). The track encompasses a variety of forms of research that contribute to our understanding of the design of the urban environment. Innovative papers that make connections across disciplines, scales, and substantive concerns are particularly encouraged.

From the Chairs:

"The Urban Design track features papers addressing diverse aspects of design theory, practice, and pedagogy. The schedule includes papers addressing areas such as the securitization of streets, design strategies for decline, and innovative methodologies, amongst others. This year, a number of sessions will focus on urban design in the context of justice, equity and inclusion." -- Orly & Sanjeev
