NRP 65 New Urban Quality
The National Research Programme "New Urban Quality" (NRP 65) studied the role and importance of urban centres in Switzerland in 5 research projects. As a result, NRP 65 has developed ideas and strategies for extensive planning of the built environment.
Two synthesis reports present the scientific results of the research projects, draw conclusions for strategic approaches in spatial planning, urban planning and architecture, and show how sustainable urban devel-opment can be strengthened.
