de Roo, Prof. Gert
Planning, use and design of space and environment
Gert de Roo (1963) is professor of Planning and advisor to bodies such as the EU, the Dutch government and various regions on issues of decentralization and regionalization. In addition, he publishes on topics including planning, spatial development and quality of life. De Roo is interested in a wide range of fields, including decision-making processes surrounding interventions in the living environment.
De Roo contributes to the debate on planning theory, focusing in particular on the interrelationship between modernist and post-modernist planning. He is also interested in the ‘fuzzy’ relationships that play a role in planning. De Roo is a member of several national and international partnerships, workgroups and editorial boards, all of which concentrate on physical planning, quality of life, sustainability and urban development. In 2011 he was elected president of the Association of European Schools of Planning (AESOP), the global leader in platform planning for theoretical debate and the development of planning education.
