- Summary: Spacematrix explores the potential of urban density as a tool for urban planning and design. The authors' fascination with density is not primarily normative, making no claim to know which density is best, but is driven by the desire to understand the relational logic between density, urban form and performance. This is a prerequisite for understanding and successfully predicting the effects of specifi c designs and planning proposals. The focus of attention is the relationship between types of urban environment and data such as amount, size, physical properties and economic values. The book will also be used by the Bachelor's, Master's and other post-graduate programmes within the Faculty of Architecture at Delft University of Technology (TU Delft).
