The ARL invites to the conference
Spatial Planning and Research in Europe 1945-1975
on 6-7 October 2022 in Berlin.
Spatial planning is typically European in its attempt to shape the development of societies by ordering their territories. It emerged in the 19th century: from colonial settlement plans and conquest projects, urban reform and conservative or even fascist fantasies of order. Bearing this legacy and further burdened by the Soviet planned economy, spatial planning entered a new epoch after 1945.
