DIGITAL URBAN PLANNING

AWARD FOR REINHARD KÖNIG

The Best Paper Award by the Symposium on Simulation for Archi- tecture and Urban Design (SimAUD) at Delft University of Tech- nology (TU Delft) has been awarded to Dr Reinhard König, Princi- pal Scientist of Cognitive Urban Design Computing at AIT, Dr Sven Schneider, visiting professor, and Martin Bielik, research as- sistant at the Faculty of Architecture and Urban Planning at the Bauhaus University, Weimar. Their collective article “System Dy- namics for Modeling Metabolism Mechanisms for Urban Plan- ning” introduces a new approach for simulation, with which the complex interplays between land utilisation, transport network, traffic volume and economic and social potentials can be an- alysed in the early stages of urban planning.

Principal Scientist Reinhard König is a leading expert in the urban planning sector
