The Circle City: Planning for resourceful cities

  • Circular Economy
  • 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.

    Marjolein Brasz, Business connector Circular Economy of the Amsterdam Economic Board and Andre Struker, Strategic Advisor at Waternet will review the Final presentations of student projects.
