The course starts with a short introduction into spatial planning in the Netherlands and other countries. The next part deals with planning retail facilities and public facilities, both in terms of supply and demand. Retail facilities will be discussed at the level of urban areas and at the level of shopping centers. Small groups of students compare and assess facilities in different urban areas. The last part of the course is about predicting the development of urban areas. Methods to predict the size and composition of the future population and the corresponding housing demand, as well as so called land use models are introduced. Students will gain experience with such methods and models.
