Abstracting the city - “Do design code have an impact to innovation or design creativity?”

Architecture and the city have a reciprocal relation. Designing architecture means designing city, and vice versa. To arrange the city means to arrange the architecture. City is a manifestation of policies constituted by the government that the impact could be perceived from its architecture. To construct city with architecture is an attempt in the future to innovate and be creative in facing the problems.

Architects and urban designers always face two contradictory problems. Public demand them to innovate creative products that could accommodate every environmental problems and users needs in the present and the future. On the other side, they are to obey regulations that often limit their design and exploratory process.

As designers that face those two conditions, what would their attempt to accommodate both, and use them as an asset in designing to achieve city that could be abstracted clearly?
