Laureate Professor Arnold Reijndorp

Professor of Urban Sociology Arnold Reijndorp (1948), research coordinator at INTI, has received the Rotterdam-Maaskant Price for his work and research activities in the field of urban sociology. In his research Reijndorp analyses the practice of everyday life in urban environments. He is highly respected because of his efforts to connect theory and practice and also to connect professionals and policymakers with inhabitants.

Since 2006, Arnold Reijndorp holds the Han Lammers Chair at the University of Amsterdam at the Department of Geography, Planning and International Development Studies; the chair is dedicated to socio-economic and spatial developments of new urban areas. Reijndorp – trained as an architect at the TU Delft – chose early in his career for a socio-economic focus in his analysis of the city.

The Rotterdam-Maaskant Price is a biennial price for persons who have distinguished themselves in special degree in the field of the reflection on architecture, urban planning and landscaping by publications, education and/or research.
