Abstract: The New Urban Agenda passed at The Habitat Ⅲ-The United Nations Conference on Housing and Sustainable Urban Development in 2016 promises to achieve urban transition toward sustainability in response to future challenges facing cities worldwide.In the current context of new urbanization in China,urban development is experiencing the transition from greenfield development to regeneration.In order to realize people-oriented objectives,planners need to gain scientific understanding of urban development and grasp the basic concepts of urban design and value orientation so that they can shape spaces that meet diverse needs,achieve social inclusion and enhance urban quality of life.The purpose of this article is to reiterate the importance of studying urban development in the "society-space" perspective and the concern about values in urban design.The paper analyzes and discusses the characteristics of urban development and changes in social needs that are encountered in the practice of urban design under the perspective of socio-spatial relations.In addition,it emphasizes the spatial-temporal characteristics and value orientation in the development of urban design theory and practice.In light of current urban background in China,the paper also argues that current transformation of urban design practice needs to be guided by theories on human settlements and reinforce three important aspects of urban design characteristics and values:seeking truth from science,seeking kindness in humanities and seeking beauty through art.
