Urban Design for the Public Good: Dutch Urbanism

Course Description:

Are you an urban planner, designer, policy maker or involved or interested in the creation of good living environments? This course will broaden your scope and diversify your take on the field of urban planning and design. We will focus on a unique Dutch approach and analyze how it can help those involved with urban planning and design to improve the physical environment in relation to the public good it serves, including safety, wellbeing, sustainability and even beauty. You will learn some of the basic traits of Dutch Urbanism, including its: contextual approach; balance between research and design; simultaneous working on multiple scale levels. You will practice with basic techniques in spatial analysis and design pertaining to these points. You will also carry out these activities in your own domestic environment. This course is taught by the Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment at TU-Delft, ranked no. 4 in Architecture/Built Environment on the QS World University Rankings (2016). All the material in this course is presented at entry level. But since the course has an integral perspective, combining planning and design aspects, it can still be relevant for trained professionals who feel they lack experience in either field.
