WHAT IS WEEKLY URBAN WORD?

The weekly urban word is a free service provided by Urban Design Skills. From a selection of words in The Dictionary of Urbanism or its online supplement, we send you a weekly urban word along with its entry. The Dictionary of Urbanism is a comprehensive and often irreverent reference for everyone whose business or passion is cities. It defines and explains almost every word or phrase that a councillor, developer, built environment professional, community activist or urban explorer is likely to hear or read.
