ETH Studio Basel (ed.) (2016): Territory – On the Development of Landscape and City. Park Books More
From 2008 to 2014, ETH Studio Basel, under the guidance of Roger Diener and Marcel Meili, investigated the process of urbanization taking place outside cities. Territory brings together the results of their research in six significant locations: the Nile Valley; Rome-Adria, Italy; the Florida hinterlands; the Red River Delta in Vietnam; northern Oman, and Belo Horizonte and Minas Gerais in Brazil.

Girot, Christophe; Imhof, Dora (Eds.) (2017): Thinking the Contemporary Landscape. New York: Princeton Architectural Press. More
Examining our shifting perceptions of nature and place in the context of environmental challenges and how these affect urbanism and architecture, the seventeen essayists in Thinking the Contemporary Landscape argue for an all-encompassing view of landscape that integrates the scientific, intellectual, aesthetic, and mythic into a new multidisciplinary understanding of the contemporary landscape. 

Magnago Lampugnani, Vittorio (2016): Voreingenommene Erzählungen. Architekturgeschichte als Ideengeschichte. Zürich: gta Verlag. Mehr
Die in diesem Buch versammelten Aufsätze wurden nicht als akademische Übungen verfasst, sondern aus einer genuinen Neugierde heraus. Immer spüren sie den Ideen hinter den Architekturen nach. Sie gehören einer Architekturgeschichte an, die über die Form hinaus Erkundungen anstellt nach Ideologien, politischen Verhältnissen, gesellschaftlichen Bedingungen, wirtschaftlichen Möglichkeiten, Techniken sowie nach kulturellen Einflüssen und Referenzen.

Autonomous vehicles are expected to offer higher comfort of traveling at lower prices whilst increasing road capacity. Using the Swiss national transport model, this research simulates the impact of autonomous vehicles on accessibility. The results show substantial impacts favoring urban sprawl and putting a spotlight on the future role of public transportation.

Rao, Xiaolu; Montigel, Markus; Weidmann, Ulrich (2016): A new rail optimisation model by integration of traffic management and train automation. In: Transportation Research Part C, Emerging Technologies 71. S.382-405. More
This paper reviews and classifies the traffic optimisation schemes of current mainline railway into two groups: improve efficiency of traffic management by providing resolutions for traffic conflicts; or improve trains’ driving behaviour by providing driver assistance or introducing train automation. Based on a comparison of these two groups, this paper proposes to combine the functions of traffic management and train automation into an integrated optimisation model.

Scholl, Bernd; Moraitis, Konstantinos; Pappas, Vassilis; Perić, Ana; Frezadou, Irini (Eds.): CODE: ATHENS! Railway and City Development in Athens. Zurich: Institute for Spatial and Landscape Development, ETH Zurich, ISBN 978-3-906327-48-8. More
This publication summarizes the most important outcomes of the Rail&City Symposium and a joint Seminar Week: successful case studies illustrating the sustainable approach to integrated spatial and transport development, as well as the results of a joint student project focused on finding ways of enhancing the current railway transport and its integration into the urban pattern of Athens. 

Yang, Kaidi; Guler, Ilgin S.; Menendez, Monica (2016): Isolated intersection control for various levels of vehicle technology: Conventional, connected, and automated vehicles. In: Transportation Research Part C: Emerging Technologies, Volume 72, November 2016. S.109-129, ISSN 0968-090X. More 
This paper proposes an efficient signal control algorithm under the co-existence of conventional vehicles, connected vehicles and automated vehicles. Trajectories of the automated vehicles are modified to reduce delay and stops. Simulations show that both delay and stops are reduced and the algorithm is robust to measurement errors.
