Término o frase en español: Legibilidad de estructura urbana.
No entiendo el significado de la palabra "legibilidad" aquí.
Se trata al parecer de cierta cualidad o atributo. No encuentro otra acepción en los diccionarios que no sea la de fácil de leer. He encontrado algunas referencias en Internet, pero ninguna esplica de qué se trata, y no sé como se traduciría, sólo que no es ¨legibility¨".

legibility of the urban structure
Explicación:
I think it's one of those urban design/architectural phrses/concepts

As Malaysia moves toward a developed status, Kuala Lumpur has experienced rapid development which has left a city that is, in many respects, disjointed and lacking in visual and physical coherence. Consequently there has been a decrease in the legibility of the city structure together with a certain loss of historical continuum and sense of identity.

What makes a good place? introduces and explores five urban design qualities: permeability; variety/diversity; legibility; robustness, and vitality. Students apply these qualities to make informed decisions about the development of a selected site, and use 3-dimensional modelling tools to visualise their ideas.

it's about the way all the different parts (buildings) fit together and how far they interrelate and "make sense", as suggested in the first answer

Many thanks to both. The quotes contributed by Rachel helped me to more or less understand the concept, although I confess that I still have issues with the word itself. Since I did not have much time to research the term before submitting the translation, I went with "liveability", which seems close enough to me in meaning, and it is a lot more, well, legible!

Coincido  Jackie Bowman: I think this answer is on the right lines. The reference seems to be to the "intelligibility" or "comprehensibility" of the structure.
