Our recent trip to Roanoke and the Taubman Museum have really made me start to focus on the design of a city rather than solely the individual design of each building.  I used to overlook how a city fits together until we explored Roanoke.  Roanoke is such an ecclectic mix of buildings and design but somehow it all fits together.  I now look at the interaction of building materials, proportion, scale, pattern, etc of buildings near each other as well as of the city as a whole.
