Presentation from Spatial Planning & Strategy Seminar, organised at the Department of Urbanism, Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment of TU Delft on 18 May 2018. The slides have been prepared by Sandra van Assen and Jose van Campen.
Q-factor: the influence of spatial quality advice teams in the Netherlands since 1990 from the perspective of planning and spatial design.
José van Campen (planner) and Sandra van Assen (designer) are performing parallel phd researches on spatial quality teams in the Netherlands. Positioned between (urban) design and planning these quality teams are assumed to link design with planning and vice versa. In previous research José and Sandra mapped more than one hundred of such teams in the Netherlands, with different rates of ‘success’ i.e. a different ‘performance’. The aim of the parallel PhD research is to further illuminate the impact of spatial quality advising on spatial quality and spatial planning and design processes. In other words: the input, throughput, output and outcome of spatial quality advising.
Sandra’s central research question is: What is the influence of spatial quality teams on spatial quality and spatial design objects and processes and how do the teamwork and innovation potential affect their performance?
José’s central research question is: What is the influence of spatial quality teams on actions and decisions in relation to spatial quality and how do the use of spatial quality regulations and interpretations and the use of knowledge affect the performance of spatial quality teams?
Keywords: spatial quality team, spatial quality, spatial planning, spatial design, expertise, performance
