It's odd that planning is considered separate from architecture. The same principles and operations apply, even if they're at different scales. The housing development I helped Concordia replan was surprisingly similar to planning a beach resort town with Landry Architects and to re-thinking the parking and campus conditions at Xavier University. It's still about utility, durability, adjacency, procession, privacy and delight.
