dc.description.abstract It is evident that the newest trend of urban site design is to provide dense cities with the largest green, generous, and user-friendly public spaces, very necessary for any urban development. The quality of urban life benefits from opportunities to create and experience open public spaces. Their elements are situated to become main circulation routes and programmed with basic and mixed-use services, natural landscapes, walkways, fountains, and many other amenities. But this trend is directly faced with different difficult situations of redevelopment, community issues, different concepts of urban living patterns, and transportation impacts. All of these are among several demanding problems that require our consideration. Our paper addresses the importance of different approaches to design practices and its' reflectance on the needs of both natural and human communities. A better balance of transportation means and user-friendly spaces would help urban sites to function interactively. Giving priority to public transportation to reduce congestion and pollution, facilitating access to basic services, creating shared spaces, and providing passive or active recreation opportunities including pocket parks, accessible green roofs, plazas, and courtyards, would invigorate and sustain naturally enriched spaces. The user would benefit from this balance, which provides him/her with a better quality of life, comfort, and security. The urban life would have more user-friendly spaces where all ways of transportation and activities find their own place. The environment would benefit greatly from a reduced number of cars, fewer toxins, more open space, and more pleasing landscaping complementing the architecture. en_US
