you know what is really the Architecture and Urban Design ?
The urban design is oriented to interpret the form and public space with physical-aesthetic-functional criteria, seeking to meet the needs of urban communities or societies, within a consideration of collective benefit in an existing or future urban area, until reaching the conclusion of an urban structure to follow. Therefore, the urban design performs physical planning at analysis levels such as the region, the urban center, the urban area and even the urban furniture itself.

Traditionally it has been referred to a discipline within urban planning, landscape architecture, or more at the same time linked to emerging disciplines such as landscape urbanism. Regardless of the prominent growth of the activities of these disciplines, it is best conceptualized as a design practice that operates at the intersection of the three, and therefore, requires a good understanding of other implications, such as urban economics, political economy and social theory
