‘New New Towns’ is an international, multidisciplinary research program begun in 2012 by the International New Town Institute (INTI). The ‘New New Towns’ program is dedicated to improving the urban and social quality of exceptional New Towns in transition: Shenzhen, China; Chandigarh, India; Almere, The Netherlands; Medellin, Columbia; Nairobi, Kenya; Dar es Salaam, Tanzania; São Paulo, Brasil; Cape Town, South Africa and Accra, Ghana.

The ‘New New Towns’ program investigates the original concept and the present social, ecological, spatial and economic dynamics of these New Towns in a comprehensive manner. ‘New New Towns’ serves a unique role in bringing together international and local expertise in a multidisciplinary think-tank. It is a catalyst for the exchange of knowledge between students, researchers, design professionals, developers, policymakers and politicians. This is done through student workshops, international design workshops, conferences and exhibitions. It builds upon existing knowledge and proposes alternatives and integrated design strategies so the New Town can once again become a ‘city of tomorrow’. Ultimately, this research will be synthesized into a publication.
