The Good City must express the interweaving of the natural environment, with the rural and urban environment, to bring together the productive sectors mediated by all the representative actors of society, 1st, 2nd and 3rd sectors.
The design of a street, block, neighborhood or even a city must combine vitality, diversity, mobility, access, adequacy, efficiency, control and meaning.
The commercial and services sector, the organization of institutions that allow the management and control of the urban environment are invariably, but not exclusively, the three focal points.
The cities are mainly residential spaces, the spaces of exchange justify the collective conviviality.
