Traditions of Thought Two broad traditions of urban design thought stem from different ways of appreciating design and the products of the design process – as aesthetic objects or displays (for looking at) and as environments (for using or living in). Jarvis (1980) discussed this distinction in terms of a visual-artistic tradition emphasising visual form (‘buildings-and-space’) and a social usage tradition primarily concerned with the public use and experience of urban environments (‘people-and-activities’).

First-order design involves direct design of a component of the built environment, such as a building or building complex, or environmental improvements – in short, a project of some sort and usually confined within a single site. g. ). g. the design of a new public square), but is often concerned with coordinating the component parts of the urban environment through strategies, frameworks and plans, and is thus commonly a second-order design activity.

Although Mandanipour’s ambiguities are deliberately presented as oppositional and mutually exclusive, it is often a matter of and/both rather than either/or. As we ‘consciously shape and manage our built environments’ (Madanipour 1996: 117), urban designers are interested in and engaged with both process and its products. While, in practice, urban design is used to refer to all the products and processes of development, in a more restricted sense it means adding quality to both product and process.
