Abstract:

Cities in the urban studies consider as the place of urban community; contains people' daily life, cultures, proprieties. Their behaviors and activities formulate city shape and structure. Different sciences studied cities; each one with a different view points and consideration. But they all have similarities in some sides; and complement each other.

The paper aim at defining city sciences from the perspective of various disciplines - architecture and built environment inclusive - so as to determine the similarities and differences in the definitions from various disciplines. This could be advantageous in general city knowledge's; help in designing educational programs; and preparing city science disciplinary courses in Architecture and Built Environment; and also, in determining urban planning process and its relevant issues; specially in arranging and managing city development projects responsibilities and roles; and this identified the confusion between professions in Built Environment applications.

Keywords:
City, Built environment, Knowledge, Architecture, Urban Design, Urban Planning, Regional Planning, Spatial Planning, landscape Architecture, Urban Geography, Economy, Technology, Demography, Politics & law, Sociology, Culture, Environment & Ecology, and Philosophy
