Future urban planners and designers are a key target group of the dissemination strategy of Repair. Therefore, we are integrating the research activities at the participating university with their teaching activities.

In the pre-lab phase, the TUD team has carried out a Research and Design Studio – Spatial strategies for the Global Metropolis – with 80 (inter)national urbanism Master students. The aim of the Studio was to develop integrative spatial development Visions and Strategies for the Amsterdam Metropolitan Area that should spur the transition towards a circular economy. This integration meant that members of the REPAiR team were part of the studio mentor teams and provided additional methodological input for material flow analyses and systemic design.

In this report, we present the ‘short versions’ of the regional strategies developed by students during the Research and Design Studio –Spatial Design Strategies for the Global Metropolis. Within 10 weeks, groups of four to six students developed first a vision and thereafter a strategy for the spatial development of the Amsterdam Metropolitan Area (AMA).
