Urban design is faced with a serious problem of developing sustainable design which will accommodate the future transportation demand and at the same time maintain a balance between personal space and open space requirements. The designs are constrained by the growing population and the growth in transportation vehicles. Urban design is again the only saviour for the future generations’ demand of quality spaces which allows them to freely move around the personal space and the working space. As the city keeps inviting more residents to settle in urban areas, the most stressed out regions are the city centers which experiences overcrowded influx of people.
Today’s urban design is faced with an immense challenge of building sustainable cities where there is constant demand of more dwellings due to growing and migrant population, and also due to increase in vehicular movements which restricts the population’s desire of free movement and right of way. This is a major challenge in cities like Tokyo which has the highest density per square kilometre in the world and the urban design team has been inventing innovative solutions for accommodating every single person and also provide them a personal space in the densely populated city. The population living in such cities will have to compromise at some point for their demands and adjust to the growing need of the city and share the risk and problems faced by the city’s population. The answers to the problem lies in the quality, insightful and mindful approach towards the future urban design, and through radical policy introduction and amendments to solve the current and the perceived issues of the future. The challenge is more of a research and analysis based instead of providing a temporary solution to the problem.
