Abstract

“Streets” a place one met every day in our life, it connects one place with another or one can say it connects human life. Streets are the public space and environment which performs so many formal and informal activities throughout the day for its users like street markets, a place for rest and recreational activities. Streetscape defines the space between the building facades (and building line) including footpath, the curb, and other public spaces, such as plazas, parks adjacent to the streets. Streets with such a great importance are constantly being neglected in our everyday built environment system. This affects the role and quality of streets. There is a need to rethink our perspective for streetscape design considering all the parameters related with the street and their user, different functions of the street, principles of public realm space etc. The paper deals with the understanding of streetscape design and its importance in life.
