In addition to designing and shaping the physical features of towns,  cities, and regional spaces, urban design considers ‘bigger picture’ issues of economic, social and environmental value and social design. The scope of a project can range from a local street or public space to an entire city and surrounding areas.

Urban design is an  interdisciplinary field that utilizes the procedures and the elements of architecture and other related professions, including  landscape designurban planningcivil engineering, and  municipal engineering. [5] [6]  It borrows substantive and procedural knowledge from public administration, sociology, law, urban geography, urban economics and other related disciplines from the social and behavioral sciences, as well as from the natural sciences. [7]  In more recent times different sub-subfields of urban design have emerged such as strategic urban design,  landscape urbanismwater-sensitive urban design, and  sustainable urbanism. Urban design demands an understanding of a wide range of subjects from physical geography to social science, and an appreciation for disciplines, such as  real estate developmenturban economicspolitical economy, and  social theory.
