Urban Design Group

The Urban Design Group (UDG) is an international membership charity devoted to improving life in cities, towns and villages through better design. The UDG believes that good urban design depends on successful collaboration between all those who shape the built environment, whatever their professional or personal background.

Founded in 1978, the Group aims to promote high standards of performance and inter-professional co-operation in planning, urban design and architecture, landscape design, and all other aspects of the built environment; and to educate relevant professions and the public in matters relating to urban design.

We work to support urban designers and foster an increased appreciation of the value of quality in the public realm through our events programme, newsletter and acclaimed journal Urban Design - widely acknowledged as the leader in its field.
