Institution of Civil Engineers: Proceedings. Urban Design and Planning (Journal)

Activity: Publication peer-review and editorial work typesEditorial activity


Urban Design and Planning publishes international refereed papers addressing the design and planning of the built environment, with emphasis on the interfaces between urban theory, policy and practice.

The journal provides an inter disciplinary platform for critical discussion and debate that aim to address the complex nature of urban design and planning, and explore its multiple socio-cultural, physical, economic and environmental dimensions. It offers a valuable resource for all those concerned with the quality of the built environment such as urban designers, urbanists, architects, planners, landscape architects, and academic scholars involved in architectural and planning research, education and practice.

Topics covered by the journal sit at the intersection of disciplines (sustainability, urbanism, urban design, planning, architecture, and landscape architecture); the intersection of spatial scales including their core and periphery (Cities, Neighbourhoods, Streets, and Buildings); and at the intersection of theoretical and contemporary thoughts, policies, practices and applications in urban design and planning.
