Summer School AMS 2019-Aug-19-26

‘Smart Mobility & Urban Development in Haven-Stad’.
Participants of this summer school will explore interdisciplinary approaches towards a sustainable integration of designing disciplines for smart urban mobility and the new urban development area Haven-Stad in Amsterdam. They will deal with the following themes: the role and function of smart urban mobility, including mobility as a service (MaaS) and emerging mobility options; travel behaviour of a growing number of users; sustainability challenges and fairness in transport planning; public and semi-public spaces (and social dynamics therein); exploration of alternative, marginal and emerging social uses of urban developments as meeting places and culture; urban integration in the overall mobility system; the interface between architecture and infrastructure with the urban fabric; programming of future transport nodes and the accessibility to and from such transport hubs of all types of smart mobilities (e.g. conventional public transport, shared mobility, autonomous taxis, etc.).

This summer school builds on the urban challenges on Smart Urban Mobility established by AMS Institute.

This is a follow up of the previous Summer Schools at AMS Institute: Making the Metropolis in 2017 and Integrated Mobility Challenges in Future Metropolitan Areas in 2018, which was linked to the Stations of the Future/Gares du Futur event held in Paris. The outcome of this Summer School and the Paris event is presented in the book Stations as Nodes.

The City of Amsterdam, the ARENA: Architectural Research Network and Delft University of Technology (through Delft Deltas, Infrastructures & Mobility Initiative (DIMI), the Faculty of Civil Engineering and Geosciences and the Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment), join the Amsterdam Institute for Advanced Metropolitan Solutions (AMS Institute) in the organization of the interdisciplinary 2019 Summer School.
