Edge condition

Urban Design Guidelines for Victoria, published by The State of Victoria Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning in 2017 suggests that edge condition is: ‘A term used in urban design analysis to describe the transition or interface characteristics of a public space with its adjacent land uses and structures. An edge may be 'active', with a building's doors and windows addressing the space, or it may be 'inactive', with blank walls or a barrier edge, such as a water body, high traffic volume road or infrastructure corridor. The edge condition assessment is part of the urban context analysis.’
