Andreas Faludi – Planning Theory

Andreas Faludi – A Portait

Andreas Faludi (Delft University of Technology) introduced the term “environmental planning”, an umbrella term to connect various forms of Dutch planning (spatial planning, water management, environmental planning, traffic and infrastructure planning, etc.). This concept has been crucial in Dutch planning in the last decades. He largely contributed to the debate within planning sciences, in particular in the field of rational theory and European spatial planning.

This is one of ten portraits we created for the University of Groningen on the occasion of its 400th anniversary. Each of the portrayed men and women was awarded an honorary doctorate. These videos express the personality and passion of these leading international professors in diverse fields of research.
