Urban Design is a design art within engineering. Researching and applying the latest innovations in a new urban system is a must. Realize that you cannot know everything. It is interesting to speak with (technical) experts, innovators and related disciplines to test and further develop your first ideas in the field of, for example, climate, nature and social cohesion.
Keep writing and drawing and discussing with each other. Question the experts, but also remain critical on their proposals. From the perspective of total integrality, we encounter impossibilities, which means that they also have to make a stretch. By examining the functioning, feasibility and buildability of various components, they can be reflected back on the integral sustainable urban system. Keep repeating this feedback loop throughout the design process.
