TU Delft Summer School Planning and Design for the Just City

The Department of Urbanism of the TU Delft  and the Chair of Spatial Planning and Strategy will promote the seventh edition of the Summer School Planning and Design for the just City in July 2022. Deadline for applications: 1 May 2022.

The Summer School combines spatial planning, urban design and environmental technology to tackle issues of sustainability, climate adaptation and water management in urban environments, putting Spatial Justice in the centre of urban development. It invites students to understand the theories and practices that bring together urban sustainability and spatial justice and to apply the knowledge acquired in the elaboration of a vision and a spatial plan and design for an area in the city of The Hague in The Netherlands.

The Summer School focuses on the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and The New Urban Agenda, launched in Quito in 2016 as frameworks for sustainable urbanisation.

The aim of the Summer School is to explore the Dutch tradition of planning and design and the integration of spatial justice and sustainability into urban development within the framework of the Sustainable Development Goals and the New Urban Agenda.

The Summer School is led by the Delft University of Technology, in collaboration with national and international partners, including the City of The Hague, the Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure and the Environment, the Dutch Delta Programme, ARCADIS, Deltares and others private and public partners.

This school includes site visits, talks with professionals and academics and a short studio-based exercise, where students and teachers will explore possibilities through the elaboration of a spatial vision, the design of a spatial strategy and spatial interventions in the city of the Hague, located in one of the most important Urbanised Delta Regions of the world.

The Summer School takes place at Department of Urbanism the Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment of the TU Delft. TU Delft is one of the world’s leading schools of architecture and urbanism . We are located in the city of Delft, in The Netherlands.
