In the past 20 years, European public authorities have invested considerable resources in the development of spatial data infrastructures.

Undoubtedly there is an unbreakable relation between the changes in human mobility and the appearance of our cities. A town for pedestrians and horses has different physical characteristics than our contemporary city. Over centuries, European cities have developed into what they are now, strongly influenced by military, political, cultural and...

The first law of thermodynamics defines: Energy can neither be produced nor destroyed, but only converted into other types of energy [1]. From this it follows for us and our topic of circularity in the building industry that we must deal with the energy that the earth receives or has received, the solar radiation, and can feed our requirements...

In many ways the work and ideas of Jaap Bakema epitomize the best of the architecture of the post-war Dutch welfare state: it is utterly unapologetic about its modernity as well as its drive to be universal and egalitarian. Bakema firmly<br/>positioned his office and its production at the heart of the Dutch welfare state system. Not only did he,...

Artificial intelligence (AI) has recently been highlighted as a design material in the HCI community. This acknowledgement is a call for interaction designers to consider intelligence as a resource for design. While this view is valid and well-grounded, it brings with it a need to better understand how intelligence as a design material can be...

Given the need to reduce building sector related energy consumption and greenhouse gases (GHG), passive and sustainable buildings are a focal point. Simple methods and techniques, which use appropriate building design, material and systems selection, and reflect consideration of the local environmental elements, such as air and sun, provide...

During earlier stays in Japan, in 2012 and 2014, I was struck by the great attention to detail, in the scale of the buildings, the streetscape, as well as in the clothing and the presentation of food. Life seems to be an accumulation of independent details that sometimes contrast considerably with one another. A city is made up of buildings, and...

The radical change in architectural design transcends the individuality of design towards multivarious individuation. The immersion of parametric diagrams in the representation of architectural objects leads into a process that could be grasped and manipulated with a high degree of efficiency. Computational advanced design techniques are...

Work on European spatial planning has led me to criticise what I call territorialism.<br/>It conceives of the world in terms of a seamless cover of sovereign states<br/>looking after its territory each as if it were its property. In the European Union<br/>though, states are enveloped by a superstructure. Does this mean that there is a<br/...

Mid-twentieth-century large housing estates, which can be found all over Europe, were once seen as modernist urban and social utopias that would solve a variety of urban problems. Since their construction, many large housing estates have become poverty concentrating neighbourhoods, often with large shares of immigrants. In Northern and Western...

In a rapidly digitizing world, machine learning algorithms are increasingly employed in scenarios that directly impact humans. This also is seen in job candidate screening. Data-driven candidate assessment is gaining interest, due to high scalability and more systematic assessment mechanisms. However, it will only be truly accepted and trusted...

Optrekkend vocht is een vaak voorkomend fenomeen in gebouwen. Vooral oude gebouwen die geen waterkerende laag (zoals bijvoorbeeld een trasraam) hebben, lijden aan dit probleem. De relevantie van optrekkend vocht blijkt ook uit het grote aanbod van producten voor het bestrijden van dit probleem. Het grote, gevarieerde aanbod en de beperkte...

The Cities of Making 'Cities Report', offers an insight into urban manufacturing in three global cities - Brussels, London and Rotterdam. Each city has had a distinctive industrial heritage and is interpreting the future of manufacturing in very different ways.

This chapter explores potential ways to implement, and benefits for policymaking of, the complementary use of two different types of modelling for analysing residential energy consumption and ethnographic research. The more traditional approach of techno-economic modelling is considered alongside agent-based modelling that incorporates both...

Many Chinese cities are increasingly exposed to the impacts of climate change, particularly to flooding. The National Sponge City Program was set up to address this challenge. This chapter examines how municipal interventions in spatial planning have been formulated in response to this national program. The case of Guangzhou is examined, a mega...
