Course aim

The 2018 edition of the Studio will explore the impact and practice of the
principles of circularity in developing urban areas, housing, public space. Still
today, the idea of circularity is not yet addressed in the field of planning and urban
development. The Studio therefore engages with it in order to explore the
transformation of the urban fabrics, the changing spatial practices and modes of
governance that are underlying the shift to an idea of close-loop material flows
and circular economy. The format of the studio combines critical scholarship, policy
making and case study analysis in the context of Amsterdam Region. It is
organized around 4 topics.
