Our world is three-dimensional and complex, continuously changing over time and appearing different at different scales. Yet, when we model it in a computer using Geographic Information Systems (GIS), we mostly use 2D representations, which essentially consist of linked points, lines and polygons. These representations are relatively easy to use...

Landscape design research is important for cultivating spatial intelligence in landscape architecture. This study explores GIS (geographic information systems) as a tool for landscape design research – investigating landscape designs to understand them as architectonic compositions and to acquire design knowledge that can be used in the creation...

De motivatie voor dit proefschrift is ontstaan in de stedebouwkundige praktijk. Ten eerste vanuit een verbazing over de complexiteit van de opgaven waarvoor stedebouwkundigen wordt gesteld, en de manieren die ze in hun loopbaan ontwikkelen om met deze complexiteit om te gaan. Ten tweede vanuit een verbazing over de hoge mate van ongrijpbaarheid...

The urban microclimate has a significant impact on people’s physical health. Effects range from discomfort, for example sleep disturbance, to life- threatening conditions, such as heat stroke, skin and lung cancer. It is therefore vital that the urban microclimate is given considerable attention in the urban design process. The PhD research...

De stad is voortdurend onderhevig aan verandering, niet alleen door uitbreiding en groei buiten de bestaande stadsgrenzen, maar vooral doordat de bestaande stad voortdurend van binnenuit van gedaante verandert. Aard en hoedanigheid van de veranderingen verschillen van wijk tot wijk en van locatie tot locatie. In de lezing ‘The Open City’ (2006)...

Shanghai, like the other big cities along China’s coastline, has witnessed extraordinary growth in its economy and population with industrial development and rural-to-urban migration generating extensive urban expansion. Shanghai’s GDP growth rate has been over 10 per cent for more than 15 years. Its population in 2013 was estimated at 23.47...

Chung, C.K. (author)
This dissertation argues that the floods following extreme precipitation result not only from very heavy rainfall but also from the significant impact of human activities on natural water systems. While most literature emphasizes that the increasing magnitude of storm rainfall extends beyond the original protection standards of hydrological...

More and more residents’ groups in the Netherlands are undertaking collective initiatives for sustainable energy optimalisation. This is the result of growing environmental awareness, decreasing government intervention and increasing civil initiative. However, the contribution to the national move towards sus-tainability is, according to the...

Previous experiences have shown that the implementation of planning policy does not always lead to the originally intended territorial management outcomes. This issue is particularly crucial when policy ideas, institutions, models and programmes are transferred into places with different cultural settings without adaptations (Knieling and...

Lu, P. (author)
Spatial planning is increasingly being considered as an important mechanism in coping with flood risk due to climate change. One of the reasons for this is that engineering approaches are increasingly expensive and cannot provide complete certainty of protection against climate-related floods. The thesis examines whether and how spatial planning...

This study is about the continual stride between 1860 and 2010 amongst the various interest groups involved with what the city of The Hague should look like. The thesis of the study states that the fragmented image that people in the city have or experience is the result of the wide variety of urban ensembles and public buildings, whether or not...

De wit, S.I. (author)
This thesis aims at the landscape architecture of the enclosed garden as an expression of the genius loci: definition, analysis, typology and transformation. The process of metropolisation tends to eliminate, or at least hide, the underlying landscape. The research addresses the question of how the genius loci can be made accessible in the...

In recent years, China has undoubtedly undergone a dramatic process of urban growth and transformation. Apart from its speed and scope, what is less recognized is that these processes are confronting the Chinese planning institutions with new and unexpected demands almost on daily basis. In reference to the increasing importance of private...

High-tech development—which lies at the very heart of the processes of economic growth—has been recognised by many developed and developing countries as a strategic instrument to enhance and sustain their competitiveness in the global economic network. Although the concept of high-tech development differs between countries, many share the...

Çaliskan, O. (author)
This thesis is all about urban patterns, what we see through the windows of the plane with an admiration of their relief-like scenery covering the land surface. In a sense, the spatial pattern within our cities is the biggest collectively produced artifact of human beings. It is both the originator and the result of human activity. It is not...

While agglomerations along the Rhine are confronted with the uncertainties of an increasing flood risk due to climate change, different programs are claiming urban river front sites. Simultaneously, urban development, flood management, as well as navigation and environmental protection are negotiating the border between the river and the urban...
