At the Institute for Open Space Planning and Design, people are at the center of consideration in planning and design activities at all scales. Research questions are broad and applied in the sense of a livable, high-quality designed environment in the city and countryside. Natural scientific, artistic and design-oriented as well as social and political science approaches to the topics are used in the analysis of open spaces as well as the debate about their further development.
