Welcome to the personal website of Conrad Kickert
In an era of environmental, social, economic and cultural instability, the role and future of cities is increasingly unclear. For millennia, cities have been our places to meet, to learn, to clash, to collaborate, but mostly, to evolve as a society. Cities can only retain this role if they are durable – able to evolve, adapt, and withstand. But how do we build, inhabit, and maintain these durable cities?
This website will show you the directions I have taken these questions in urban research and teaching. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch!
