Maroš Krivý‘s (Head of the Urban Studies Department) research examines urbanism from historical and contemporary perspectives, and is situated at the intersections of urban political economy/ecology and architectural history. There are three overlapping strands of his research:

1. platform urbanism, cybernetics and systems thinking

Keiti Kljavini (urbanistikaosakonna külalislektor) uurimustöö on ruumiga tegelevate valdkondade vaheline ja vastavalt koostöövormile ka erineva väljundiga. Fookus on pealinnast ja selle regioonist kaugemal, peamiselt planeeringuliselt ning strateegiliselt ebaühtlase arenguga linnalistes ja maalistes keskkondades. Teemadena on tähelepanu all kahanemine, eluaseme valdkond ja osalusplaneerimine. Nende tööde väljundid on olnud näiteks konsultatsioonid, sekkumised linnaruumis, ruumikavad ja visiooniplaneerimine, ruumiandmete põhised uuringud, erinevad osalus- ja koosloome projektid, sündmused jms. Kõikide nende urbanistika praktiliste ettevõtmiste eesmärk on kasvatada ja sisustada võimalikku linnalise keskkonna teoreetilist mõtestamist ning siduda õppetegevusse reaalsed osapooled, olukorrad ning aktuaalsed kohalikud väljakutsed, seda siis nii praktikas kui teoorias.

Näited 2019-2020 aastal:

  • Rahandusministeeriumi “Kahaneva rahvastikuga piirkondades probleemsete korterelamute elanike ümberasustamine ja kasutusest väljalangenud korterelamute lammutamine” juhendmaterjalide koostamine ja Kohtla-Järve eluaseme valdkonna pilootprojekti läbiviimine (Linnalabor
  • „Europeanisation Through Repair“ (Tartu Ülikool)
  • Naissaare arengukava 2019-2029 (Linnalabor)
  • Antsla ruumikava (2019, Linnalabor)
  • Narva taju-uuring (2019, koostöös SPIN Unitiga)
