Analysing and Exploring Sustainable Urban Strategies (AESUS)

This project is part of ‘Urban Regions in the Delta’, a NWO funded project. We
participate with several researchers in the subproject ‘Solution strategies in
a changing planning context’ together with the Land Use Planning group. In the
project, we focus on innovative strategies for regional planning and on
cooperative regional design and visualization. We work on a regional planning
and design case for the A2 Corridor and the province of North-Brabant near the
city of Eindhoven, called Brainport Eindhoven. In the case we try to establish
current and future use-value of traditional and institutional building blocks
of strategic planning and identify problems with these values. Next to that we
try to conceive novel spatial planning concepts and design tools, which are
relevant to the preparation, form and working of policies and plans.
