Center for Studies of Urban Development & Well Balanced Living
– As a significant source of eminent Architects & Urban Designers and a credible reference of professionalism
– Creating an Ideal Model of Excellence in Architecture & Urban Design
Why did 2A Magazine decide to make out “Paragon City”?
Any urban development is probable to influence different people in more than a few ways. 2A Magazine identifies design as a problem-solving instrument that renovates a design and turns it into a reality. With “ Paragon City- Center for Studies of Urban Development & Well Balanced Living” we want exceptional designers to take their creative mastermind, apply it to the most complicated problems in our lives and come up with solutions that are responsive to people’s requirements, are resourceful, and eventually cost-effective.
The result and fruit of living in such Paragon City are helping its citizens to become more peaceful, less stressful and as a result avoid dissipation of their creative energy and allow them to live in a more positive, kinder, more loving and more innovative ways. In such ideal cities all members of society from all age groups have the potential and opportunities to grow and live harmoniously and peaceful.
The Paragon city is a major, modern city, one that combines the past with energy and liveliness. Urban design is the way cities are fashioned to best unite the local populations with their surroundings. The highlight vision of 2A Architecture & Art’s paragon city and “Paragon City” is to bring together architecture, public space, sustainability, social justice, transportation, as well as other features of city life to produce a space that willfully addresses every issue.
- Urban Security and Safety
Urban Security and Safety can refer to more than a few forms of crime in addition to a genuine or professed lack of security. The definition of threats to public safety and security requires a purpose, evidence-based consideration of vulnerabilities. For “Paragon City” to flourish, authorities need to carry out this assessment through the collection and analysis of qualitative and quantitative figures, together with appropriate stakeholders as well as communities.
- Physical health of the residents
Urban planning, as well as public health, shares global missions as well as perspectives. Both intend to improve human wellness, emphasize needs assessment as well as service delivery, deal with complex social systems, center at the population level, and focus on community-based participatory processes. Both fields focus on the requirements of exposed populations. For the urban planning to be ideal, 2A Magazine believes that professionals need to work on improving the wellbeing of persons and communities by creating more fitting, equitable, healthy, well-organized, and striking places – now and for the future.
- City as a Creativity Generator
At the moment, “creativity” has come to be seen as a critical element of urban development, a way of addressing the concerns of globalization, technical change, and intercontinental city competition. Unquestionably, creativity can be a means to cope with the ongoing loss of local as well as regional cultural uniqueness by substituting it with an urban one. It can be a method to make local economies more cutthroat and attain social organization and inclusion in civic society.
- Ideal City and innovation
The most excellent way to improve a city is by mobilizing its inhabitants. Innovations in technology, services as well as governance do not end in themselves but are ways and means to outline the behavior and perk up the lives of the city’s residents. All innovations must be centered on the inhabitants, holding on the principles of universal design and usable by folks of all ages as well as abilities.
- The city that supports gender equality
In the past, spaces were designed following and perpetuating sexual characteristics and roles. Looking at gender issues in planning is essential to success in economic restoration as well as social inclusion. However, while planning an Ideal city, 2A’s idea is to consider the barriers, scrutinize planning levels, and propose changes, citing examples of good practice. Urban planning from a gender viewpoint offers a broad vision of citizens by outlining that woman, men, and transgender live and experience space in a different way.
- City as a cultural promoter
Culture goes into urban development as an essential part of everything else. Cultural matters are imperative parts of the lives we lead. It is inevitably coherent to incorporate cultural planning into the urban planning scheme. If development can be seen as an enrichment of our living standards, then efforts geared to development can barely overlook the world of culture.
- Attention to Sustainability
Apprehensions about climate change, renewable energy, clean air and water, and land use carry on to draw attention to sustainability, principally sustainable urban planning. Sustainable urban planning is the developmental strategies as well as practices that guarantee inhabitable, self-sustaining societies over the long term. 2A (Architecture & Art) magazine’s idea of sustainable urban planning takes account of more than a few disciplines, together with architecture, engineering, environmental science, accounting and finance, materials science, transportation, technology, law, economic development, and government. This planning furthermore develops innovative as well as realistic approaches to land use and its brunt on natural resources.
Urban planning and design is the process of determining the physical setting for life in metropolitan cities, towns as well as villages. It is the art of creating places. It entails the design and planning of structures, groups of buildings, spaces as well as landscapes, and ascertaining the processes that make booming urban development possible.
Urban planning and design is a helpful force for city leaders to accomplish sustainable development. It is a way to bring about a difference. Urban design and planning help make the most out of community budgets by notifying infrastructure as well as services investments, balancing demands for growth with the requirement to save the environment from harm. It distributes economic development within a specified region to arrive at social goals. It creates a scaffold for the alliance between local governments, the private sector as well as the community at large.
The 2A Magazine introduces an initiative “Paragon City, Center for Studies of Urban Development & Well Balanced Living” to create an improved in-habitat for inhabitants from all over the world. With this, we establish a framework that helps leaders make over the vision into an accomplishment, using space as a significant source for development as well as engaging stakeholders along the way.
Metropolitan planning is a development rather than a definitive statement. It is a prototype for the physical development of the conurbation, a pattern to direct the city builders in establishing their investments and computing the vision for success. It is a design of the physical, societal, cost-effective, and geographic properties of the metropolis leading to a structure.
- Developed Cities
The urban planning of Developed Cities involves the arrangement and design of structures, public spaces, transport systems, as well as services. It is the process of giving shape, outline, and character to groups of structures, to entire neighborhoods, and the town. The urban design of Developed Cities blends structural design, landscape architecture, in addition to city planning together to make urban areas well-designed and beautiful.
- Developing Cities
Urban Planning of Developing Cities is a technical process concerned with the growth and efficient use of land, protection of the environment, community welfare, and the design of the urban setting.
Multiculturalism holds cultural and intellectual differences within a society. It has the potential to bring people of quite a lot of cultural backgrounds together. People experience the prospect of embracing togetherness – that may help break down the societal obstructions that far too often divide us. Urban design and planning of multicultural cities require an understanding of the ways different cultural and intellectual groups associate with public spaces.
– Historically, Artistically and Culturally Distinctive Cities:
Varying patterns of utilizing public spaces is the outcome of differences in cultural, historical, and artistic values associated with a city. To plan such towns, a planner needs to recognize the extensive as well as continuous public participation. Eventually, these values lead to the design that is flexible enough to hold shifting preferences as well as values over time.
