Urban Potential and Strategies in Metropolitan Regions
This research vessel combines practical and theoretical efforts to investigate metropolitan regions and their constituent parts using analytical and design methods to analyse strategies and planning instruments of urban regions and to present a synopsis of the knowledge gained. The focus is first on research into the available and potential characteristics of urban spaces, quarters and regions. Second, it concerns the comparative evaluation of available steering mechanisms and planning instruments, and third the theoretical penetration of the role of design in these cognitive processes.
