Cities are man made creations, but they function like an ecosystem. A skyscraper changes more than the skyline. A road brings more than transport alternatives. A community garden contributes more than just a bunch carrots. Developing a better understanding of the interconnected nature of urban environments allows us to design cities that are more efficient, more liveable, and more sustainable.

Joe Peach on the future of urban design education.

「城市是人為產物,但運作卻與生態相似,高樓大廈不僅改變天際線,道路不只提供另一條動線,社區花園不僅自產胡蘿蔔,若瞭解都市環境彼此相連的狀態,就能設計出更有效能、更宜人居、更永續的城市。」
