Over the years Prof.dr.ir. Arjan van Timmeren has played a significant role in the integration of the concept of sustainable development in the field of architecture, building technology and urbanism in both practice and academia. His research focuses on environmental technology (urban metabolism), industrial ecology, sustainable area development and self-sufficiency. With both his role as scientific director at AMS Institute and his office and research group at the TU Delft he is involved in many projects in and outside the Netherlands, varying from individual (clusters of) buildings, to large ‘climate neutral’ city districts and infrastructures. He received several (inter)national awards for his work.
