During the 10th SP&S seminar Dena Kasraian presented the state of the art of her ongoing PhD research: a long-term analysis of interaction between urbanisation, infrastructure development and public transport use in the Randstad. Her research is structured in a range of time slots (the longest reaches over the past 150 years) within which she examines interaction in degrees of detail statistically. The base of her research is a comprehensive collection of data sets in which she brought together what has been spread across departments, sections and universities in the Netherlands and which she complemented with the missing elements. Analysis is guided by hypotheses in which she challenges conventional wisdom about the development of the built environment, underlying many planning efforts in the Netherlands.
