Since long ago, cities have been the beating hearts of the societies and as people form a city; a city forms them mutually like a living organ and a dynamic being. This relation is what makes urban design and urban planning a matter of significance. Regardless of how a city is designed, a community is obliged to use the different features of it dynamically and that’s how the quality of people’s lives is affected. 2A magazine, as yet another approach to creating a better in-habitat for people from all over the world, introduces the first ever “Ideal City for Well-balanced Living & Multidimensional Growth & Progress.” In this process nominators in different parts of the world evaluate different cities that can be candidate for the title of this award based on research and the respective criteria. Eventually few cities in various categories will be chosen as the role model of urban planning.
We believe that in the course of this practice great achievements such as a through research on the urban planning of different cities, encouraging better urban designs, etc. can be obtained.
