Bij de herontwikkeling van bedrijventerreinen in steden legt de bestaande industrie vaak het af tegen woningbouw. Maar TU Delft-onderzoeker Karel Van den Berghe laat via een rekenoefening zien dat dit ook ten koste gaat van de circulaire ambities van steden. Want hoe kan Den Haag ooit verantwoord bouwen als de stad haar enige betonfabriek...

In order to mitigate the high environmental impact of the construction sector, the Dutch government envisions a fully circular building economy by 2050. The first phase of this transition (2018-2023) consists of experimentation. Here, circular building experiments should trigger radically new ways of thinking and radically new ways of doing....

Urban densification is one of the most relevant strategies to reduce the housing shortage in the Netherlands, as it also aims to prevent additional pressure on transportation networks and contributes to more sustainable travel. The effects of the built environment on travel behaviour have been studied extensively. To date, most studies focused...

Dutch cities are both expanding and densifying, corresponding to a global<br/>trend in which people increasingly tend to live in cities. Urban densification<br/>implicates the development of new buildings and redevelopment of part of the<br/>existing building stock, to meet the aims of future cities and their populations.<br/>These alterations...

This paper aims to provide insights into the role of ‘Entrepreneurial Behaviour’ in stimulating the transition of the Built Environment from a linear economic model to a Circular Economy. Implementation of the circular principles is riddled with regulatory, cultural, financial, and other sector-specific barriers that stall transition efforts and...

The fascination started with the idea that a street is a gettering place for everyone. It is an open space where everybody can come and where people can meet and interact with each other. But is the street designed as a place for interaction? Or is it intended to get from one place to the other? Is the street a logistical way of working, to...

Despite the recognised importance of built heritage for sustainable development, and the multiple tools, recommendations, guidelines, and policies developed in recent years to support decision-making, good sustainable conservation practices often fail to be implemented. Challenges faced by practitioners often relate to external factors, and...

Sustainable development can only be achieved with an innovative improvement from the way we currently analyze, design, build and manage our urban spaces. Current digital analysis and design methods for cities, such as visibility analysis, deeply rely on mapping and modeling techniques. However, most methods fall short of depicting the real...

Bill Hillier’s space syntax method and theory enables us to describe the spatial properties of a sustainable city. Empirical testing of the space syntax method over time has confirmed the capacity and innovativeness of analyzing spatial relationships with the purpose of understanding and explaining the socio-spatial organization of built...

Applying any sustainable intervention in the urban energy system requires fundamental knowledge of the energy demand dynamics. Only when we can predict the users' energy demand at any given time with accuracy, we can redesign the urban energy system. Accordingly, the main objective of this paper is to determine the annual electricity usage of...

Digital technologies are considered to be an essential enabler of the circular economy in various industries. However, to date, very few studies have investigated which digital technologies could enable the circular economy in the built environment. This study specifically focuses on the built environment as one of the largest, most energy- and...

The concept of Circular Economy (CE) and its application in the built environment is an emerging research field. Scholars approach CE from various perspectives covering a wide range of topics from material innovation to city-scale application. However, there is little research on CE implementation in housing stock, particularly that which is...
