Barth, Emanuel (2014): How international borders affect local public transport: Analyses and evaluations of cross-border agglomerations in Switzerland. France and Germany. Dissertation, IVT-Schriftenreihe Nr. 167. PDF
This dissertation report examines the various effects that international borders exert on local public transport systems in high density agglomerations with regard to demand, passenger expectations and framework conditions. Furthermore, it identifies related challenges and derives approaches and recommendations from the analysis.

Bierlaire, Michel; Palma, André de; Hurtubia, Ricardo; Waddell, Paul (Hrsg.) (2015): Integrated Transport and Land Use Modeling for Sustainable Cities. Lausanne: EPFL Press, distributed by Routledge. More
Sustainable development is a goal of planners and politicians and ever more prominent for urban areas where development agglomerates. The SustainCity consortium further developed the methodology and tools for integrated modelling and analysis of land use transport systems. The IVT implemented a microsimulation for the Canton of Zurich. 

Brillembourg, Alfredo; Klumpner, Hubert (2015): Forget About Utopia. In: Hou, Jeffrey; Spencer, Benjamin; Way, Thaisa; Yocom, Ken (Hrsg.): Now Urbanism: The Future City Is Here. Routledge. More
This book explores the intersections of critical inquiry and immediate, substantive actions. The contributions recognize the rich complexities of the present city not as barriers or obstacles but as grounds for uncovering opportunity and unleashing potential. It views city making as grounded in the imperfect, messy, yet rich reality of the existing city and the everyday purposeful agency of its dwellers.

Ortigosa, Javier; Menendez, Monica; Gayah, V. (2015): Analysis of the Network Exit Functions for different urban grid network configurations. In: Transportation Research Record: Journal of the Transportation Research Board (accepted or in press). More
This paper analyses traffic performance on an abstract grid network with different street configurations using the Network Exit Function (NEF) – an aggregate relationship between trip-completion rate and the number of vehicles circulating in a network.

Rossano, Frédéric (2015): From absolute protection to controlled disaster: New perspectives on flood management in times of climate change. In: Journal of Landscape Architecture, 10 (1). S.16–25. More
How we conceive of flood disaster and the means to protect ourselves have evolved radically through centuries. Following centuries of deluge angst and blinding technicism, current adaptation projects bring about a new perspective that reintegrates flooding into spatial perception and territorial design, but also give rise to new myths that challenge the ethics of landscape architects.

Simpson, Deane (2015): Young-Old: Urban Utopias of an Aging Society. Zürich: Lars Müller Publishers. More 
Young-Old examines contemporary architectural and urban mutations that have emerged as a consequence of one of the key demographic transformations of our time: aging populations. Distinguishing between different phases of old age, the book identifies the group known as the «young old» as a remarkable petri dish for experiments in subjectivity, collectivity, and environment.
