Delta Urbanism is an interdisciplinary research program of the Department of Urbanism, TU-Delft, which investigates the possibilities to combine flood protection and water management strategies with urban design, landscape design and spatial planning, aiming to improve spatial forms and structures in urban and metropolitan delta regions. We develop design and planning approaches and methods which contribute to make urban delta landscapes more sustainable, attractive and adaptive.
