  • healthy, environmentally sensitive and encourage the users’ well‐being;
  • addressing challenges of environmental changes, social and economic development, social agency and anticipatory planning and design;
  • enriching and are enriched by new information and technology; and
  • informed by an understanding of the changing role of design and emerging larger‐scale design questions around the relationships between the built environment, site and physical geography.
