    Urban Planning is often function first. It deals with understanding the social, physical, and comprehensive interaction between persons, economics, physical space, residential, and industrial spaces.

    Urban Design deals with the physical interaction between people and their surroundings.

    Both are very important to a city, and tools such as Form Based Codes uses both as a regularity tool.
