Abstract: Learning dynamics of cities has become urgent again. As regular as a clockwork on the financial market, new and old brandings of cities are launched. They reveal uncertainties about the futures of cities: pattern city, public city, underground city, emerald city, divided city, event city, city of flows, arrival city, inclusive city etc. The problem of this sort of metaphors is that often the city is seen as a self-acting phenomenon instead of a place where people live and work. The effective regeneration of urban areas is one of the major challenges for societies across Europe and the world. This symposium about urban regeneration is concentrated on methods of urban design, sustainable development and urban planning that contribute to new approaches. It includes cases from Dutch cities (Breda, Leiden, Rotterdam) and France (e.g. Nantes), and Spain (Madrid). These cases show how strategic urban regeneration has become an important method of spatial intervention and is opposed to fragmented solutions. New approaches aim at the creation of lasting spatial solutions, which connect design issues to their social, economic and cultural contexts.
The main questions are:
How does and should urban design respond to new urban regenerationquestions? Which external and internal factors play a role in the design process of urban regeneration projects? Which are the main strategies, e.g. design instruments to control urban design?
This symposium has two aims. First of all, it will show the current problems and agenda for urban regeneration and design. Secondly, this symposium is part of Paul’s formal leave of the faculty.
