ABSTRACT

ABSTRACT: The condition of cities in Nigeria has become very alarming today, considering the state of planning in the country. Many cities have grown haphazardly without a plan, making it take the form of a slum and shanty settlements; it is expected that urban design principle can be utilized to design a habitable and aesthetically pleasing environment. This paper seeks to discuss the ways in which urban sprawl can be managed with good urban design principles.
