Sve je aktuelnije pitanje da li se može, i na koji način, izmeriti uticaj dobro oblikovanog (javnog) gradskog prostora? Pitanje je izuzetno značajno ako imamo u vidu rezultate u našoj sredini.
Urbanistički dokumenti po zakonu sadrže "uslove oblikovanja i građenja" i na taj način usmeravaju sve one koji se bave realizacijom prostora na određena pravila oblikovanja (dizajna).
Izuzetno je zanimljiv projekate organizacije Design Council CABE koja će organizovati stručnjake i održati forum, a koji je moguće pratiti uživo preko: http://www.designcouncil.org.uk/our-work/Insight/2012-Design-Forum/?WT.dcsvid=OTE4MzA5Njg0NQS2&WT.mc_id=
