The Department of Urbanism of the TU Delft  and the Chair of Spatial Planning and Strategy will promote the fourth edition of the Summer School Planning and Design with Sustainability in July 2017.

The Summer School combines spatial planning, urban design and environmental technology to tackle issues of sustainability, climate adaptation and water management in urban environments. It invites students to understand the theories and practices that bring together water management and urban sustainability 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 aim of the Summer School is to explore the Dutch tradition of planning and design with water and the integration of water management and sustainability into urban development.

The Summer School is led by the Delft University of Technology, in collaboration with the IFoU (International Forum of Urbanism) and other international partners.

This exercise 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.
