Working with urban complexity and unpredictability

The shift from greenfield urban development to transforming and densifying existing areas brings with it a whole range of other shifts and an unprecedented level of complexity and unpredictability to urban processes. You need to be multi-thematic (integral), multi-stakeholder (collaborative) and highly adaptive over time (incremental). With our 7-layered model you can now effectively and efficiently organise your complex urban transformation processes.

In traditional linear development processes, we often see sequential and relatively separate phases. Our 7-layer model flips this around into a more lateral approach in which the different phases run parallel and are combined and connected in new and sometimes unexpected ways, providing leverage for each other and for the overall process.
