Work

Strategy indicator for urban transformation

The practice of urban area development has changed considerably in recent years. Area development today calls for flexibility. Urhahn researched the practice and concluded that there is plenty of experimentation with new strategies.

Approach

The urban designer and the spontaneous city

De stedenbouwer in de spontane stad is veel meer dan ontwerper. Het formuleren van de opgave, het vormgeven aan processen, verleiden en enthousiasmeren zijn essentiële vaardigheden.

Approach

Public values

Approach

Area developers and spontaneous city

The role of the traditional area developers (property developers and housing associations) is changing. But that does not mean they no longer play a role. What does the spontaneous city mean for developing parties?

Publication

The Spontaneous City

The era of large-scale urban planning is over. With the book ‘The Spontaneous City’ Urhahn heralds another practice.
