Welcome to the joint exhibition of graduation projects from TU Delft’s Urbanism, Landscape Architecture and Geomatics.

The Urbanism track is informed by the rich tradition of Dutch spatial planning which inspires students to work in multi-disciplinary ways to create integrated solutions for the built environment.

Landscape Architecture addresses spatial issues inspired by nature, art, and technology, enabling students to create compositions and processes that work across different scales and time.

Geomatics for the Built Environment deals with spatial knowledge about the built environment; students learn how to use advanced data-collecting techniques, analysis, information modelling, and visualisation to apply geographic data to real-world problems in innovative ways.

EMU (European Post-master in Urbanism, in the online museum until 2021) is an advanced masters’ programme jointly run by TU Delft, KU Leuven, UPC Barcelona, and Università IUAV di Venezia, which adhere to the specifically European tradition of urbanism as a collection of socially responsible disciplines that aim at improving the living conditions of all citizens.

These final presentations represent work produced by the students during their final year (or, in the case of EMU, final semester). The projects presented here are located all over the world; they showcase not only what the students have learned, but also represent the culmination of years of hard work, research, analysis, design, and the development of presentation skills they have learned while doing their masters’ studies at TU Delft.

The presentations also illustrate the learning processes by which students have engaged with the complexities of designing and planning cities and landscapes.

By combining research, design, and planning, and by focusing on multiple levels of scale (e.g. local, regional, interregional, and international), they demonstrate original thinking on the problems they chose to investigate; they also propose potential solutions that illustrate their design and analytical skills, as well as their relevant professional and place-based knowledge.

Lastly, these projects also demonstrate the students’ ability to present their work, and the learning processes represented by these projects show how the students have developed the academic and professional skills required for them to take their place in the world as urban designers, planners and researchers.

We hope you enjoy the museum and its graduation master pieces!
