The Spatial Planning and Environment (SPE) group brings together researchers with a wide breadth of expertise to explore how advances in planning theory and research can improve our knowledge and action on cities, communities, and natural environment.

Planning Theory and Practice: Decision-making processes, systems planning, planning evaluation, urban analytics and simulation are at the core of the SPE approach to the planning field.

Communities, Urban Culture and Built Environment: Addressing fundamental socio-economic dynamics, heritage values, inequalities, segregation types, well-being, justice and inclusivity, exploring the key influence of urban form and structure (street, plots and building systems) and technological advances (digital transition), as well as mobility and accessibility patterns, relating infrastructures, land uses and movement.

Natural Environment and the City: Focusing on the interaction between the natural and built environment includes research on climate change and environmental planning, urban metabolism and energy transitions, environmentally conscious design and sustainability assessment.
