In July 2019, the Department of Urbanism of the TU Delft promoted the fifth edition of the Summer School Planning and Design with Sustainability, with 100 students from all over the world.

The 2019 edition of the Summer School combined spatial planning, design and environmental technology to tackle issues of water in complex urban environments. It invited students to understand the theories and practices that bring together water management and sustainable and fair urban development and to apply the knowledge acquired in the elaboration of a vision and a spatial plan for an area in the city of The Hague in The Netherlands.

The aim of the Summer School is to explore the Dutch tradition of planning and design with water and the integration of water management, sustainability and urban development.

The Summer School is led by the Delft University of Technology, in collaboration with  international partners.

This exercise includes site visits, talks with professionals and academics and a short studio-based exercise, where students and teachers explore possibilities through the elaboration of spatial scenarios and the design of spatial strategy in the city of the Hague, located in one of the most important urbanized delta regions of the world.

The Summer School takes place at Department of Urbanism the Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment of the TU Delft. The next edition will take place in July 2021.
