AARO Urban Transformations

AARO Urban Transformations

The AARO ‘Urban Transformations’ programme focuses on design questions that cities are facing as a consequence of social and spatio-economic developments. The expectation is that the implementation of new technologies will make it possible to substantially improve the way urban areas function. In 2013, 2014 and 2015, the Fund invited designers to develop ideas, expertise and strategies for urgent urbanization issues.

The programme is implemented on behalf of the Ministry of Infrastructure and the Environment (IenM), which has set aside a sum of €275,000 per year.

methodology
Open Calls are used to put specific issues on the agenda and bring together multidisciplinary teams of architects, urban planners and landscape architects to carry out research into a topical assignment. Creative Industries Fund NL supervises the teams, initiates collaborations, organizes meetings for the interchange of expertise, experience and the presentation of results.

Three Open Calls have been issued within this programme:

Stedenbouw zonder Grondopbrengsten – Urban Development without Land Revenue (2013) (in Dutch)
Ontwerpen aan de Smart City – Designing the Smart City (2014) (in Dutch)
Slimme Mobiliteit en de Stad – Smart Mobility and the City (2015) (in Dutch)

sharing knowledge

website (in Dutch): The Fund shares all the expertise, research and experiences that are amassed within the supported projects on its Urbanization website.

AARO
The Action Agenda for Architecture and Spatial Design 2013–2016 (AARO) is the successor to what was formerly known as the ‘national architecture policy’. The crux of this agenda formulated by the Dutch Ministries of Education, Culture and Science (OCW) and of Infranstructure and the Environment (IenM) is to strengthen the social position and quality of design at regional and local levels in the Netherlands. Creative Industries Fund NL is involved with five programmes: City and Region, Urban Transformations, Innovative Forms of Commissioning, Healthcare Accommodation and Education Environments.
