1-Introduction to Urban Design
The beginning of knowledge is the discovery of something we do not understand, Frank Herbert
This writing is the result of my experience in urban design studio of University of New South Wales. This section is made in the purpose of sharing urban design and to show clearly what we’ve learn t so far. It explains urban design in term of ‘what and ‘how, generally it is also about what urban design is, and how to implement urban design. We in UNSW, are taught that we have to know what we are talking about, to be thoughtful urban designer.
“We must think 50 years ahead and design backwards” Raghavendra Rathore
The design process itself is the way to know references and how to relate the solution in the references to design,(look on the diagram 1).
We need to learn about understanding the context, knowing references. It is for making decision to the future. From what we understood design is not only for the past but it is for future ahead.
