The Badia Fiesolana
Augustinian and Academic locus amoenus in the Florentine Hills

The monastery of the Badia Fiesolana on the outskirts of Florence has often been seen as a secondary project of the Medici. However new research has shown that the family's involvement in its financial, cultural, intellectual, religious and artistic affairs is central to its development under Cosimo and Lorenzo de'Medici during the 15th century.

30 min. video with Detlev Ipsen on Urban(izing) Villages and the Mega-urban Landscape in the Pearl River Delta

Discussion: The results of a DFG-funded research project on urbanization and informal dynamics

Large urban agglomerations have emerged over the past decades and, in some cases, entire rural regions were urbanized in less than a decade. These trends not only reflect an unprecedented quantitative dimension of urbanization but also the emergence of new urban forms - beyond urbanism - thus posing new challenges to regional planners, politicians and urban governance actors.
The book has been published in the HABITAT - INTERNATIONAL Series. Beyond Urbanism
