Division for Territorial and Urban Development

The Division for Territorial and Urban Development was established at the beginning of 2016 to build a knowledge base for our related activities. Thanks to our references from the last year a team counting wide range experienced experts was built. Our experts come from different disciplines, such as architecture, geography, law, sociology, economy and landscape architecture, having experience from public administration and academy.

The office has a wide range of activities from policy making, concept building to implementation and project management. Relating to this, our staff made several action plans and a baseline study. From January 2016, we also participated in strategic preparation and planning of cities for tourism, economic, cultural, green or brownfield development. We sought to enforce the following aspects: during analysing feasibility studies and impact assessment analysis:

  • Laying the foundations for widespread social engagement and creating the possibilities and frameworks of common thinking;
  • Preparing quality improvements to create spaces that are fun and enjoyable for a wide audience;
  • Focusing on positive externalities;
  • Strengthening local communities, local economy;
  • Reinterpretation and highlighting of representative areas and local values;
  • To increase resistance to climate change, to reduce the impact of heat, and to promote water retention;
  • Ensuring sustainability from a social, economic and environmental point of view.
