Architecture has long been a recognized degree and course of study (assuming you weren't referring to landscape architecture). Not so much "urban planning"

Which accredited school granted that degree?
Did you learn about skyhooks there?
Did you also minor in "urbonics"?

No, that is the definition of "connected". So please provide us with your definition of "connected".

I don't think you have any idea of what you are talking about. You and a select subset of self-proclaimed "urbanists" remind me of the Humpty Dumpty character from Lewis Carroll's Through the Looking-Glass:
"When I use a word," Humpty Dumpty said, in rather a scornful tone, "it means just what I choose it to mean—neither more nor less."
Lewis Carroll, Through the Looking Glass (1872)
...and that's generally the problem with your communications. Urbonics 101 = you use terms commonly understood to have one meaning in a manner that is inconsistent with everyday use and you do so routinely in an equivocal fashion. "Connected", "walkable", "urban fabric", "transit", and the ridiculous debate over "park or town square" are just a few examples.

The "Humpty Dumpty" character is a literary allusion to one who is insecure and one who can't be put back together again once broken. Sure would explain your protestations and reactionary defensiveness regarding "urban" matters. Maybe it also explains the subset's need for "herding", drive for hamster-style living, and "urbonics".

Urban Planning is an accepted academic discipline and one can get a degree from it from many accredited schools. You don't seem to like that but it's nonetheless true so deal with it some way other than being obtuse and petty.

Let me guess, Humpty Dumpty, you pursued "urban planning" academically for a little while?

The only folks being obtuse and petty are the self-proclaimed "urban planners" who can't seem to have their own version of definitions for common terms that changes whenever confronted with logic and reality. Maybe "urban planning" should require studying other "urban planners" so they could start out as confused as they end up.
