CONTENT

In this lecture series present-day urban design assignments are considered within the dimensions of technical, economical and social aspects. These key aspects play a vital role in urban developments and urban designers will have to implement them within their designs and strategies so they become an integral part of the urban agenda. In doing so, an urbanist chooses his/her own role, or specific method of working. The various lecturers cover different approaches to urbanism, such as ‘the visionary designer’, the ‘mediator’ or the ‘co-creator’.

 

More content wise, contemporary technical aspects of urbanism cover the field of innovation, mobility, energy, and sustainability. Realizing efficient urban societies is needed to become less dependent from traditional natural resources. Technical support and innovation, using data and facets like smart grids are useful elements into the challenges future cities have to cope with in order to become more sustainable.

 

The economic aspects play a major role in urban strategies and are converted and shaped into urban designs. The way these projects are eventually established from concept till their realization is a constant interaction between calculating and drawing.

 

The social position of the discipline is strong as it provides the separation between private and public space. It also outlines the private build form and the meaning of public space. The position is also distinguished in the role of the urban designer, and the clients they work for, as well as the role of the government in a liberalized system.

Ir. Marty van de Klundert MCD (1970) graduated in 1995 as an architect at TU-Delft and completed his second master City Development at Erasmus University Rotterdam in 2007. His work lies on the verge of urbanism and area development, with focus on creating value by means of co-creation and participation. He worked as an urban designer at KCAP in Rotterdam (’95 – ’01) and was head of the department of urbanism at RDH in Breda (’02 – ’10). In 2010 he established Spacevalue; a Breda based design office for urbanism and spatial strategy.

Marty participates regularly in (applied) research and gives lectures about urbanism, area development and value creation through design at several institutions. During the period ’09 - ’13 he was part time connected to HZ University of Applied Science as associate lector. With a team he designed the new Bachelor-program Delta Management and organized it’s accreditation by NVAO. He also started the research program Delta Management and conducted research such as ‘Climate change as a chance for entrepreneurs’ (Kennis voor Klimaat rapport 106/2013; ISBN 978-94-900-7076-2). His research on environments for working in a knowledge economy was published in Stedelijke Gebiedsontwikkeling 2008 (ISBN 978-90-79540-01-3), Envisioning Corporate Real Estate in the Urban Future (ISBN 90-5155-021-9) and La création de pôles pour l'économie du savoir - Stream 02 (ISBN 978-2-9540-9690-2).
