By 2050, up to six billion people are expected to live in urban areas, accelerating urban growth and increasing densification. The challenges here are the reduction of open and green spaces, the creation of so-called heat islands in urban areas and sensitive vertical densification. The integration of daylighting More

The documentary «Tierrita» by visual anthropologist Leonie Pock offers insights into the struggle of a small farming community for their land in rural Colombia.
Two overarching technological methods including agent-based modelling and simulations, and visualisation technology are connecting and overlapping three urban themes of public lighting, segregation, and security in Cape Town and Bogotá. Within this common ground called Urban Research Incubator (URI), researchers collaborate on several projects.
The Imaginaries exhibition edition, previously at the 2021 MAK Vienna Biennale, will travel to the 9th Bi-City Biennale of Urbanism\Architecture (UABB) Shenzhen, China from August to November 2022. The central theme is architectural responses and strategies in the context of global climate change.
The SAH Award for Film and Video recognizes annually the most distinguished work of film or video on the history of the built environment. «Not Just Roads is a well-filmed, focused and nuanced take on the impact of highway building in contemporary India on the disenfranchised. The film brings More

The Urban Research Incubator at ISTP, researching public lighting, segregation, and security in two cities of the Global South (Cape Town and Bogota) created an interactive multi-user platform, making their research, policy briefs, and multimedia and immersive content more available. In doing so, they continue to engage in More
22 – 24 July 2022 | Laufen, Germany. Building on the 2013 «The Laufen Manifesto», which called for the development humane design culture, this event will discuss the relevance of the ideas of the original Manifesto and encourage scrutiny, actions, and decisions on methods and goals with relevant leaders in the urban More
Recently launched UTPS multifaceted project includes a currently establishing work and event space «Urban Design Studio Sarajevo»; a decentralized research and data collection laboratory «Studio Mobil», a digital twin of the whole City of Sarajevo using data-driven, large-scale, agent-based urban simulations for the new Sarajevo Urban Plan 2040 More
Hubert Klumpner ist für zwei Jahre neuer Leiter des Netzwerks Stadt und Landschaft (NSL). Er spricht von den bevorstehenden globalen Herausforderungen und deren Übersetzung in konkrete Projekte, die als logische Konsequenz von Studierenden der Bereiche Architektur, Städtebau und Raumentwicklung in Zusammenarbeit angegangen werden.
Starting 27, September on Mondays, 10:00–12:00 | Elective Course | ETH Zurich, Oerlikon, ONA E16, Neunbrunnenstr. 50 + Online. Lecturers: Prof. Hubert Klumpner, Klearjos Eduardo Papanicolaou, Michael Walczak. In the turf war between quantitative and qualitative methods, we appear as mediators bridging the two sides. How can quantitative More
Colombia has suffered an armed conflict for over 50 years. As a result, more than 1 million children lack access to education with a deficit of 3’000 schools and more than 8 Million civilians displaced from their homes. Growing Schools Prototype is a strategic up-scaling concept for replicating More
Switzerland’s widely adopted spatial policy rejects the use of new land in favour of promoting the densification of existing buildings or brownfield developments. However, to date there has not been an assessment of the volumetric building reserves that are still available within the current building regulatory framework. This More
Elective Course | Starting 22 February on Mondays, 10:00–12:00 | online. Lecturers: Prof. Hubert Klumpner, Klearjos Eduardo Papanicolaou, Michael Walczak. Giving audiovisual form to the concept of ‘circular economy’, we will encourage students to think about the socio-economic relations that constitute our cities, through the use of digital More
There are a variety of reasons to support the premise that public lighting is beneficial to urban communities. At the same time, a key challenge for the provision of public lighting in informal settlements is their constant physical transformation. The aim of this paper is to evaluate the More
Lighting of pedestrian paths fulfils crucial needs for informal settlement dwellers. A common technological approach in some countries to address these needs is to provide high-mast luminaires. In this paper it is shown by computer simulation that those luminaires are not able to create adequate consistent lighting conditions More
How do you teach students during a lockdown, when they are supposed to map a city, meet Albanian students in Tirana, or even interview passersby in Zurich? Easy! They map their quarantines instead, meet online (which interestingly intensified the exchange even more), or simply create an ethnographic documentation More
Elective course | Starting 21 September on Mondays, 10:00–12:00 online and at ETH Zurich, Oerlikon, ONA E16, Neunbrunnenstr. 50, 8050 Zurich. Lecturers: Prof. Hubert Klumpner, Klearjos Eduardo Papanicolaou, Michael Walczak. The course aims to use diverse qualitative research methods and practical recording tools to interrogate the notions of More
Initiative to form across different institutes a group responding to the diverse challenges and opportunities around daylight, with a multidisciplinary research platform to address questions of better including aspects of daylight in sustainable urban design and innovative energy technologies to support human wellbeing, living comfort, and health. The project offers two More
The transdisciplinary research project «Virtual Environments as a Decision-making Tool for Public Lighting in Bogotá» focuses on lighting technology and its performance in Bogotá’s densifying urban environments. New lighting approaches are co-created together with informal settlement dwellers and tested with Colombian policy-makers through a Virtual Environment.
