Urban Design at TU Delft

The Section of Urban Design at the Department of Urbanism of TU Delft builds upon the long-established Delft tradition of urban design. Our activities are based on the understanding of the built environment as a cultivated landscape, addressing both the design of the urban fabric and the territory and its infrastructures. In our work, we address the spatial configuration of social and ecological processes of urban transformation in the Netherlands and beyond. Our goals are threefold: to gain deep insights on the drivers of urbanization through quantitative and qualitative spatial analyses; to develop urban design solutions, methodologies, and instruments to support sustainable urban development; and to critically reflect on the theories, debates, and practices of the discipline of urban design itself.
