A small recap
What is INTI?
INTI is the International New Town Institute, a scientific research institute studying the past, present and future of New Towns worldwide. New Towns are all cities built from scratch according to a master plan: from Washington DC in the USA to Marne-la- Vallee near Paris in France. From Songjiang near Shanghai in China to Zoetermeer near The Hague in the Netherlands. INTI develops and exchanges state of the art knowledge on the development, economy, planning, socio-demographics and culture of New Towns. INTI’s research partners include the Dutch Delft University of Technology and the University of Amsterdam and an increasing number of international universities and institutions outside the Netherlands.
What is a New Town?
New Towns differ from gradually developed towns in the political moment of the decision-making, and the subsequent design of a master plan by professionals, to create an urban community on a site where there was no town before.
What does INTI do?
INTI aims at studying, influencing and improving New Towns worldwide by researching their development in theoretical and practical research. The focus is on:
The regeneration of Europe’s post war cities, e.g. English New Towns, French Villes Nouvelles, Dutch Groeikernen and New Towns in the former Soviet countries.
The most recent generation of New Towns, designed and built from the Middle East to Afrika and Asia, in countries like Dubai, India, China, Korea and in Latin America in countries like Brazil and Venezuela.
INTI communicates its knowledge and research in different ways
Publications: Model Town; Using Urban Simulation in New Town Planning (2009), New Towns for the 21st Century; the Planned vs. the Unplanned City (2010), New Towns and Politics (forthcoming); Rising in the East, New Towns in Asia after 1990 (forthcoming).
Education: INTI initiates and organizes educational activities: academic courses featuring an elite of experts, custom-made master classes for professionals, PhD studies, lecture series for the general public, excursions, and summer schools.
Events: INTI organizes annual international conferences e.g ’Simulation Models for Planning New Towns’ (2007), ’Planned vs. the Unplanned City’(2009) and ‘New Towns and Politics’ (2010). Future topics will include: ‘The Sustainable New Town’, ‘New Towns and Africa’, ‘New Towns and the Cold War Era’, ‘New Towns and Culture’ and ‘New Towns and Regeneration’.
