Abstract: The built environment is a man-made surrounding that provides space for all kinds of human activities. Our quality of life is deeply influenced by the surrounding urban environment that we inhabit. That is why it is crucially important for us as designers and architects to execute extensive research over different architectural practices in developing the ultimate space for living. This is the focus of the paper to study different designer’s methods in solving architectural and urban planning tasks. We will try to list and analyze some of the architectural approaches used in contemporary urban design and architecture that provoke the creativity of the designer and architect to create better, more interesting and functional urban space to experience.
