Unlocking a Multidisciplinary Discourse on Architecture and the City

This research project sets out to develop a new methodology of crossing disciplinary perspectives with the goal of unlocking a multidisciplinary historiography of architecture. It is based on the conviction that something fundamentally new can be learned from the exchanges that architects have had with other disciplines.

How can Urban Policy-makers Leverage Science and Technology to Create Safer, more Inclusive Cities that Serve the Needs of all Citizens?

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.

Difference in Urban Planning. Interdisciplinarity as an Approach to Understanding the Complexity of Contemporary Urban Societies

Cities attract people of diverse origins, religious practices, socioeconomic status, and everyday practices. As a result, urban planning is challenged to respond adequately to this demographic heterogeneity. These urbanization processes highlight the importance of placing difference at the centre of the urban planning agenda.

In Zurich, the acceptance of residential densification projects depends on perceptions of how they will impact housing costs and rent. Pictured here: a neighbourhood in north Zurich. (Photograph: KEYSTONE / Christian Beutler)

“Yes, but not like this!” – Why densification often lacks public acceptance

Densification is a fundamental principle of urban planning and development today. Nevertheless, it often encounters local resistance. A group of ETH researchers has now systematically investigated factors influencing public acceptance of densification, focusing on the canton of Zurich and six cities of global importance. One key factor: affordable More

If you work in Zurich, you should be able to live there – but where exactly?

Much controversy surrounds the SBB Neugasse project in the city Zurich. It will be put to the vote for Zurich citizens on 25 September. On a 30-​hectare site in a well-​connected location, only 375 flats are envisaged. This means that there is not sufficient densification, not as much housing More
