Spatial planning approaches have changed since the 1990s. Major shifts in the institutional architecture of planning schemes have occurred: plan-led planning approaches – characterized by fixed administrative boundaries, statutory frameworks, and paternalistic forms of government – have turned into development-led approaches, in which soft...

The beginning of the 21st century is defined by geopolitical tensions around resources, an expected shortage of fossil fuel resources and the emerging climate crisis, amplifying the urgency of the transition to renewable energy sources. This energy transition has been at the forefront of public discussion, framed by the 2016 Paris Agreement and...

The province of Gelderland, in the Netherlands, has many castles, country houses and estates. Together, they form historic estate landscapes that partially determine the regional landscape character. Climate change and urbanisation have a significant effect on the management and protection of these heritage landscapes. An abundance and a...

Adaptive urban transformations employ landscape-based regional design as an integrative and multiscale design and planning approach for sustainable urban development. In this approach, natural and urban dynamics as derived from systems analysis set the pace and nature of adaptation. This chapter presents an initial strategy for adaptive urban...

Deltaic areas are amidst the most favourable territories around the globe. Their strategic location and superior quality of their soils are core factors supporting both human development and the rise of these regions as global economic hubs. At the same time, deltas are extremely vulnerable to multiple threats from both climate change and the...

Arid regions throughout the world experience long periods of drought. Combined with a high temperature, this can lead to water shortage. Due to climate change, this is expected to worsen, as areas become drier and temperatures increase. One of the regions where this problem occurs is the region of North-East Africa. In this region, water stress...

The Resilient Coastal Landscapes graduation lab explores the potential of a landscape-based regional design approach to contribute to more resilient coastal landscapes around the globe. Such an approach addresses the interaction between the natural and urban landscape throughout the scales of space and time. It takes the landscape as the basis...

Sustainable urbanisation requires planning and design strategies and principles that take the (natural) landscape as the basis for working with natural processes for the benefit of socially and ecologically inclusive and thriving urban landscapes. Such an approach takes the landscape first and considers the biosphere the context for social and...

The unprecedented speed and scale of urbanization in China calls for advanced planning and design strategies. This paper aims to explore a new pedagogical approach that cultivates morphological regional design studies to develop spatial strategies that acknowledge the complex and diverse urban landscapes of Chinese megaregions. Accordingly, the...

This chapter discusses the organisational setting of regional design in the realms of spatial planning and territorial governance. As a starting point, it argues that rules on how imagined design solutions function in an abstract, simplified ‘planning world’ are an important regional design product. When focusing on these rules, regional design...

The era of energy transition has brought to the front, the incredible potential of designing the reciprocal relationship between energy and space. The transition to renewable sources of energy like wind, solar and geothermal energy, uses space in a different way- its altered spatial qualities have blurred the boundaries between technical space ...

Balz, Verena Elisabeth (author)
This thesis elaborates on the role and position of regional design in spatial planning. Building upon the argument that design in this realm aims to improve planning guidance by judging its implications for particular situations, the thesis develops an analytical framework for an enhanced understanding of how design both influences, and is...

This graduation plan set in Japan, focussing on the reconstruction of the Japanese east coast in the prefecture of Miyagi that has been struck by a devastating tsunami in 2011. Working in an interdisciplinary set we design future prospects in an intertwined matter. Representing a new regional design strategy for the affected region by...

Throughout Europe, cities and region are facing shrinkage. Shrinkage is usually indicated by population decline but is connected to many more issues. It is a complex process that can have negative consequences for both the social cohesion as well as the economic viability of a region. Shrinkage can also tear into the physical structure of our...

Balz, Verena Elisabeth (author)
In recent decades, The Netherlands has seen an increase in the use of regional design-led practices in national indicative planning. Despite this, the interrelations between design and planning decision making are not well understood, and attempts to involve the expertise and ambition of designers in planning have had unclear outcomes. This...

The border land has always been where a country ends, designated as the "End of the Plan". It also draws a line between people from different sides of the space. However, the introduction of the euro and Schengen treaty has brought us an opportunity for transfrontier spatial development which may establish a new relationship in the border land....

This paper explores infrastructure as a type of landscape and landscape as a type of infrastructure. The hybridisation of the two concepts, landscape and infrastructure, seeks to redefine infrastructure beyond its strictly utilitarian definition, while allowing design disciplines to gain operative force in territorial transformation processes....

Urban and regional design are fundamental skills in the field of urban studies. Designing is a complex, personal, creative and open-ended skill. Performing a well-developed skill is mainly an implicit activity. In teaching, however, it is essential to make explicit what to do. Learning a complex skill like designing, is a matter of doing and...

Regional design is a practice that has in recent decades frequently been applied in spatial planning processes in The Netherlands. The making and use of spatial representations of plausible futures of regions was employed to refine physical implementation strategies and simultaneously, by reaching out for broad, sometimes public, attention, to...

The last decade has witnessed various trends in decentralization of government responsibilities related to spatial planning in the Netherlands and this has resulted in a differing flexibility of the indicative planning frameworks for transport and spatial development. In this article we investigate whether and if so, how revisions of frameworks...
