We proudly present results of the Research & Design studio Spatial Strategies for the Global Metropolis, part of the MSc Architecture, Urbanism and Building Sciences/Track Urbanism programme at Delft University of Technology in an online exhibition.
The thematic focus of the 2020-2021 round of the studio was informed by an ambitious policy agenda that the Province of South Holland has set out: aligned with objectives of the Dutch national government, it intends to host a 100% circular economy by 2050. 19 groups of students have analysed spatial and institutional development in Southern Holland and have designed visions and development strategies that lead towards a circular construction- and demolition sector, a circular agri-food sector, and a circular bio-based chemical sector in the region. In conjunction the projects presented in this exhibition explore the spatiality of a circular economy and seek to inspire spatial planning in this way.
In the exhibition each student groups’ project is represented by an executive summary, which gives key information on the project and main recommendations on how to foster a circular economy in Southern Holland, and the title page of the group’s project report. Visitors who want to gain a deeper insight into projects can access the actual report in the TU Delft education repository.
