Built Environment

The built environment includes urban and rural dwelling space, community facilities, roads, infrastructure and other physical-spatial arrangements needed for living, working and playing (e.g., shelter, mobility, commerce, recreation). The built environment ranges in scale from single buildings and small public spaces to neighborhoods and sprawling mega-regions tied into global flows of material, energy and knowledge resources. How we design, produce and maintain our built environment is crucial in our quest for sustainable development.
