Typology of Tools for urban design governance
Analysis tools help us understand how the built environment is shaped, through which processes and with what consequences. This evidence can then be used to underpin policy and guidance, to monitor design outcomes from the development process, or to evaluate the state of the built environment more widely.
– Research projects focused on aspects of the design process or on understanding particular design-based problems;
– Audits of the state of the built environment, in order to understand the quality of the designed built environment and the challenges it presents.
