Abstract

The term “urbanscape” is synonymous with the urban landscape that typically refers to the appearance and layout of cities (Oxford). Cities are complex entities with a nexus landscape that houses humans and the biodiversity which interact with each other, along with the other components of the urban settings such as buildings, roads, open recreational spaces, etc. The design of these components that account for the built and natural environment of the cities inevitably has a significant impact on the inhabitants.
