Urban Design is the process of shaping a city’s physical form. The principal elements that Urban Design examines include: parks, open space, and other places that people may gather: streets, sidewalks, and walkways; bridges and water bodies; historical features; trees and landscaping; and lighting and signage.
Urban design takes a holistic approach toward all the physical elements that make up a city.
Urban design shapes these elements in ways that create urban environments that are functional, attractive, comfortable, animated, stimulating and safe. While urban design looks at the physical nature of things, its principal goal is to elevate the human experience of urban spaces.

Landscape architecture is the design of outdoor public areas, landmarks, and structures to achieve environmental, social-behavioral, or aesthetic outcomes. It involves the systematic investigation of existing social, ecological, and geological conditions and processes in the landscape, and the design of interventions that will produce the desired outcome.
