Modern planning paradigms promote the design of walkable neighborhoods. In order to allow urban designers to understand consequences of design choices regarding the street network as well as the allocation of density, program, and amenities it is imperative that we develop new modeling capabilities to facilitate the design of healthy and sustainable urban habitats that promote active mobility. Urbano is a new, easy-to-use, urban design tool that models active mobility and evaluates access as well as utilization of amenities, streets, and public spaces. It introduces three new urban design metrics as well as novel and fast ways to import and translate urban data into actionable design feedback using a simple trip sending algorithm.
