This might be an odd question (and I hope I'm posting it in the right place) but I'm looking for general info on breking into the urban design field. The problem is I'm not sure where to start. I unfortantly cannot draw so that leaves me out of most design jobs. I also abhore politics so I'm rather weary of the policy side. I know this will sound somewhat simplistic and perhaps childish, but basicly my ultimately I want to be the guy that that says lets put housing on that block, a park on that block, an office building there and and some stores in that area.
I realize it's not that easy but I'm really not to sure what skillset I need to get into urban design and what type of entry level jobs are out there that I might be qualified for. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
