To integrate considerations for cultural assets and townscape into urban planning, we should improve the current planning institutions. We can find some clues from the preservation system, including making a list and designating a historic district, which emphasizes on value of cultural assets. In addition to that, we should start a design review to discuss what a design should be at each site and conform each project to a master plan. To make those improvements effective, we should reduce the number of FAR and establish a permission system. A set of fair criterion with rationality through the due process will reform the current urban planning institutions.
