Urban design in practice is incremental, but architects imagine it as scaled-up architecture—large, ready-to-build pop-up cities. This paradox of urban design is rarely addressed; indeed, urban design as a discipline lacks a theoretical foundation.

In a “declaration of independence” for urban design, Ryan describes urban design as the largest of the building arts, with qualities of its own.
