Research

Cittaideale brings together creative teams for generation of new knowledge, designing a special plan or work on spatial innovations in urban and rural contexts. For every task specific expertise and creativity are united. No matter if a research- or design-team is created, the synergy is kindled even before the team starts working together. This increases the togetherness which leads to the best results. This way Cittaideale enhances insights in the necessities of the future, by creating a unique team for every question. 

 

Examples: 

  • MNEX-team, Food-Energy-Water Nexus
  • Design team Climate manifestation Groningen
  • Design team MNEX Western Sydney

“Rob underlines radical solutions for climate change with deep research methods and uncompromising senior project management skills.” - Bob Verheijden, Head of Department of Design, Minerva Art Academy
“Working with Rob is always exciting, he addresses the big challenges engaging a range of different experts, understanding systems, finding synergetic solutions and translate this into conceptually simple yet innovative spatial visions, local designs and academic outputs.” - Nico Tillie, Delft University of Technology
“Cittaideale brings creativity and design thinking to a range of projects. This design-based approach allows the development of a series of future scenarios that can be tested in relation to future opportunities and risks. The work is always grounded in current scientific thinking and is positive in its outlook. Cittaideale is focussed around Rob’s knowledge of landscape and landscape processes particularly related to climate change, and is brought to life by Rob’s ability to engage a wide range of audiences, from students to professionals and stakeholders through inspiring lectures and participatory workshops.” - Greg Keeffe, Queen’s University Belfast
“Rob is in zijn denken en doen een ware force for good. Hij richt zich met veel verbeeldingskracht op wat mogelijk is, ziet kansen die anderen niet zien, zoekt de samenwerking en houdt daarbij nuchter het grotere doel voor ogen: een gezonde, natuurrijke en duurzame samenleving.” - Folef van Nispen tot Sevenaer
