        Han Meyer graduated as an urban designer from Delft University of Technology and subsequently worked at the Department of Physical Planning and Urban Renewal in Rotterdam for ten years. He has been working at Delft University of Technology since 1990, obtaining his doctorate with the thesis De stad en de haven (City and Port) in 1997. He became professor of urban design - theory & methods in 2001. His research has two emphases: the programme Delta Urbanism explores new relationships between engineering and urban design; the programme De kern van de stedenbouw in het perspectief van de 21e eeuw (Essential Urban Design from a 21st-Century Perspective) has yielded a four-volume book series of which the last instalment Het programma en gebruik van de stad (The programme and use of the city) was published in 2014.

            Editors: David Peleman, Jantje Engels, Christophe Van Gerrewey

            “It is brilliant people say brilliant
            while it’s mere dilettantism

            even the most exalted starts to stink”
            — Thomas Bernhard, Der Schein trügt, 1984
