The objective of this course is to introduce the students with different spatial analyses and design support tools. The students will be able to relate spatial data from various sources with place bounded socio-economic data through the use of GIS and Space Syntax. The framework of the course is set by the concept of geodesign which according to Campagna [2014] is an integrated process informed by environmental sustainability appraisal, that includes project conceptualisation, analysis, projection and forecasting, diagnosis, alternative design, impact simulation and assessment, and which involves a number of technical, political and social actors in collaborative decision-making. The variety of tools introduced, allows the students to support planning and design decisions from the local to the regional scale. The students will be presented with a set of technological based tools for urban and regional analyses and modelling. The main focus will be on network analyses using the Space Syntax method and GIS supported methods. Moreover, the students get an introduction to basic computer aided spatial analyses and statistics. The students will get a chance to test and apply the knowledge gained through the technology course during the in class exercises and through the assignments. Additionally, the students will be able to closely interact with a reflective attitude when using these tools in the planning and design process in their design and strategic planning projects or on their own research projects Space Syntax allows to analyse how the layout of the build environment influences the social, economic and environmental performance of places from the scale of the entire city to the scale of the individual street and building. Space syntax allows to measure the strength of spatial layouts, both existing and proposed, and to interpret how spatial layouts impact the way that people move, interact and transact in streets and buildings. A geographic information system (GIS) is a tool that integrates hardware, software and data for capturing, managing, analysing, and displaying all forms of geographically referenced information. The GIS session focus each on different spatial aspects: demographical distribution, different forms of density and accessibility. Spatial research questions for all these aspects are developed and the students are introduced to the different tools that are provided by ArcGIS to investigate them.

This course is an intensive two-week master class led by a leading scholar or thinker and will be themed around a theoretical issue leading to the completion of a research assignment.

In the technology course we will address two important issues that will influence our way of designing tremendously. The first concerns the flexibility of the plans we make. In the Harvard Design Magazine reader Urban Planning Today, Saunders (2006) defines the future role of governments as establishing intelligent and flexible guidelines, or incentives. These guidelines should not prescribe solutions or particular built forms, but should define principles or performance criteria that leave the designer free to be creative in solving design problems (Punter 2007: 507). The second issue concerns the effects of climate change and especially the changing balance in the hydrological cycle. We will study both simultaneously by investigating the dynamic relation between rising water levels, type of water barrier, type of housing and various density variables. Important is to understand the performance of a chosen model (combination of the above described aspects) in normal circumstances and in case of flooding. Based on the knowledge developed during the course, truly open flexible plans can be made for areas that have to deal with a high risk of flooding. Flexibility and dynamics are thus key words for the approach we will take in the technology course.

In this seminar-based course, students focus on issues related to the transformation of the contemporary built environment, developing knowledge that better bridges speculative and actual architectural production. Students engage in a collaborative educational process in order to contribute to a deeper understanding of the themes at hand. Through reading and seminar discussions students will be introduced to the literature on cross- and interculturalism. They will be asked to become familiar with the main concepts of the field of cross-cultural studies (transculturation, hybridity, mitigation, etc) and will relate these to contemporary theories from architects and urban designers (the generic city, the city of flows, critical regionalism, etc).

In the course Regional Strategies & Territorial Governance students are introduced to the notions of strategic spatial planning and regional design, with particular reference to experiences in Europe, but also referring to experiences elsewhere in the world. Students explore the idea of strategic planning in relation to the purposes which strategic planning is meant to achieve; the varying form and content of strategies and designs; and the process by which strategies are prepared. We take a comparative and crucial perspective, applying common principles in the evaluation of examples from different countries. We use the Randstad-Holland and national and provincial strategy making in the Netherlands as case studies. We encourage students to rethink the form and content of strategic spatial plans in the light of changing conditions in economy, society and politics. They take these lessons forward into the studio work. The course is composed of lectures about the concepts of strategic planning and regional design, the methods by which plans and strategies are prepared; seminars and debates on critical issues; and workshops where students share examples from their home countries.

Students will build on the knowledge they gained in the first term curriculum, focusing on the impact of societal, environmental, and economic determinants on contemporary architecture and urban design. Students will work on projects that take into account how design considerations relate to these determinants. Fieldwork will be an integral part of the curriculum, when applicable. This studio-based course will focus on the ability of students to articulate their own methods and tools. Students will be given a design problem (dwelling for aging population, building for contemporary public life) that is anchored in particular a cultural setting, and will be asked to develop their own analysis and design approach. In doing so, students will be demanded to reflect upon the different aspects and components of a design approach, as well as on their relation to particular cultural settings.

This course is about theories, methods and techniques in landscape architecture and urban design with a focus on design research and research by design. The course is based on a series of seminars on methodology, a series of fieldwork exercises and writing a position paper. It aims to provide the students with (1) important theoretical and practical clues for developing a critical academic attitude towards research and design in urbanism, and (2) in-depth understanding of important theories, methods and techniques in the field, with the focus on design research and research by design. The course consists of different assignments that deliver material that can be discussed in the group and helps to develop an individual, and knowledge based design attitude. On one hand it provides some specific methods and techniques for urban design and landscape architecture, and on the other, it provides backgrounds on general scientific research tools and criteria.

The course is a thematic lecture series focusing on scholarly research and critical approaches to architecture discourse. The aim is to provoke dialogue and debate, engaging students in linking architectural thinking and practice to the history of ideas and changing social and cultural conditions. Invited speakers consist of international emerging and leading practitioners, scholars, and experts. The course is organized by the Berlage Center for Advanced Studies in Architecture and Urban Design. Each semester's theme relates to the education and research programs of the Department of Architecture.

The studio concentrates on the design for a transformation of a complex urbanized landscape, former industrial or port-site including one of the big cities of the Netherlands. The assignment addresses the spatial and economic as well as the social and cultural dimensions of the transformation, and discusses the understanding of Landscape Urbanism. The R&D studio addresses the relation between the structural plan of an urbanised landscape and the strategic meaning of design projects on the urban scale of a neighbourhood. The issue of time layering and the time dimensions of the transformation-process will play an important role.
