This chapter focuses on a traditional Iranian water infrastructure, the qanat system, a technical solution to the problem of accessing water for irrigation and urbanization that has shaped the landscape and organized the territory. The qanat was the basis for habitation, construction, and prosperity (abadani). It is also a key to understanding...

Cities worldwide currently face freshwater shortages. Forecasts predict that demand will outstrip naturally renewable and available water supplies by 40% by 2030. This poses a serious threat to livability in cities and urban areas that are already struggling with water-related issues like floods and land subsidence. Water insecurity, in...

The redevelopment of the New Dutch Waterline, also known as the New Hollandic Waterline, was crucial to a change in public appreciation of Dutch military heritage and its connection to landscape design. Starting in 1980, new methods of revitalization combined preservation, renewal, and narrative approaches. At the same time, the work on the New...

The Netherlands has a centuries-long tradition of reclaiming land. In the last century gaining land from water peaked with the IJsselmeerpolders, made possible by technical innovations. The Noordoostpolder (1937–1942), one of the IJsselmeerpolders, is a unique example of a fully designed agricultural landscape of the twentieth century. It is the...

This chapter explores two structural aspects of port-city interaction. First, it studies the evolution of planning policies on post-industrial waterfront spaces in the Netherlands before and after the 2008 financial crisis, focusing on the former shipbuilding company Rotterdamsche Droogdok Maatschappij (RDM). The RDM site in Rotterdam is a...

We need to tell a new story about urbanizing delta regions. Historically, large-scale ‘iconic’ hydraulic works and modern industrial ports have been celebrated as showing the power of humans to control and subject nature. The emphasis on this part of cultural heritage tends to bury the remains of engineering and urban development of the previous...

Water has served and sustained societies throughout the history of humankind. People have actively shaped its course, form, and function for human settlement and the development of civilizations. Around water, they have created socioeconomic structures, policies, and cultures; a rich world of narratives, laws, and practices; and an extensive...

Port cities face enormous sustainability challenges. In this chapter, we propose a relational view of these challenges, exploring how governance tries to connect the three pillars of sustainable development—economic, social, and environmental—and addresses the contradictions inherent to new port plans or waterfront projects. We zoom in on the...

Engaging citizens in open data hackathons provides opportunities for innovation and the generation of new services and products. This paper aims to explore the motivations of citizens who engage in open agriculture data hackathons. We conducted a case study and analyzed data collected from 161 participants of 11 farming hackathons held between...

The focus of design studies has shifted from a product-centric perspective to a perspective in which value is defined by and co-created with the consumer, rather than embedded in the output. The reasoning hence focuses on the interplay between innovation and design processes. Moving from an earlier conceptualization of design-driven innovation,...

‘The land, so heavily charged with traces and with past readings, seems very similar to a palimpsest’ (Corboz 1985: 190). Any territory is the result of multiple and simultaneous processes; some are taking place spontaneously, others as the direct result of human interventions. (Secchi 1990; Secchi and Viganò 2009) For urbanists, a territory is...

We prove the ℓ<sup>s</sup>-boundedness of a family of integral operators with an operator-valued kernel on UMD Banach function spaces. This generalizes and simplifies earlier work by Gallarati, Veraar and the author, where the ℓ<sup>s</sup>-boundedness of this family of integral operators was shown on Lebesgue spaces. The proof is based on a...

In this paper we show that Musielak–Orlicz spaces are UMD spaces under the so-called Δ<sub>2</sub> condition on the generalized Young function and its complemented function. We also prove that if the measure space is divisible, then a Musielak–Orlicz space has the UMD property if and only if it is reflexive. As a consequence we show that...

Demand response refers to the concept that power consumption should aim to match supply, instead of supply following demand. It is a key technology to enable the successful transition to an electricity system that incorporates more and more intermittent and uncontrollable renewable energy sources. For instance, loads such as heat pumps or...

This paper explores the design space for shared intimate experience of Brain Computer Interaction (BCI) for mirror processes and reflection. Two experiments in BCI-mediated Artistic Social Labs, in which participants (actors and observers), interact withmulti-modal representations of EEGs of kissing, provide new insights on the design of...

This chapter presents an overview of policy intentions in the Netherlands related to road pricing since 1988/1990 and will discuss dominant factors for not implementing any road pricing policy so far. The contribution is limited to the payment of road use, excluding taxes on fuel and parking policies. The main conclusion is that, although the...

Direct connections between nodes usually result in efficient transmission in networks. Such electric power transmission is governed by physical laws, and an assessment purely based on direct connections between nodes and shortest paths may not capture the operation of power grids. Motivated by these facts, in this chapter, we investigate the...

This paper presents the first empirical study based on ground-truth data of a major Bullet-Proof Hosting (BPH) provider, a company called Maxided. BPH allows miscreants to host criminal activities in support of various cybercrime business models such as phishing, botnets, DDoS, spam, and counterfeit pharmaceutical websites. Maxided was legally...
