The achievements and breakthroughs in the field of urban design research and practice in 2018 mainly focus on digital urban design, urban design strategy, urban spatial form, urban design practice and education, and the exploration and discussion of problems with Chinese characteristics. In academic research, digital urban design based on human-computer interaction as a scientific design method will lead the future development direction of urban design, while urban renewal, urban double-repair, people's city and city characteristic style are taken as strategies to improve urban quality. The study of urban spatial form all over the world links human behavior with urban environment. In terms of design practice, Xiongan New District, Beijing Vice-Center, Zhengdong New District and Shibuya in Japan are exploring and practicing multi-element urban design under the guidance of new concepts. In addition, the research results and consensus in the field of urban design education are important ways to improve the level of urban design practitioners and managers. Exploring and discussing the problems of urban design with Chinese characteristics is a necessary prerequisite for the combination of international advanced experience and China's national conditions.
