The vision of urban design is to create functional, aesthetically appealing, and sustainable urban environments that enhance the quality of life for those who live, work, or visit a city. The primary goal of urban design is to plan and organize urban space in a way that promotes efficiency, accessibility, safety, and equity

Urban design aims to create places that foster social interaction and community, with attractive and safe public spaces that encourage physical activity, recreation, and emotional well-being. It also seeks to promote diversity and inclusion by designing environments that are accessible to all people, regardless of age, gender, abilities, or socioeconomic status.
