The Summer School Planning and Design with Water for Sustainability takes place every July at the Department of Urbanism of the Faculty of Architecture and the Build Environment of the Delft University of Technology (TU Delt). TU Delt is one of the world’s leading schools of architecture and urbanism which is located in the historic city of Delft in the Netherlands.
The Summer School focuses on the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and The New Urban Agenda, launched in Quito in 2016 as frameworks for sustainable urbanization. The aim of the Summer School is to explore the Dutch tradition of planning and design with water and the integration of water management and sustainability into urban development within the framework of the Sustainable Development Goals and the New Urban Agenda.
This school includes site visits, talks with professionals and academics and a short studio-based exercise, where students and teachers will explore possibilities through the elaboration of a spatial vision, the design of a spatial strategy and spatial interventions in the city of the Hague, located in one of the most important Urbanised Delta Regions of the world.
