The contents and approaches of Spatial Planning have changed drastically in the last three decades. Shifting Sense , Looking Back to the future in Spatial Planning describes these dynamics and identifies important themes for the future. The book consists of four Parts. The character of the first and second Part of the book is mainly retrospective, respectively considering the effetcts of spatial changes on developments in society. The third and fourth Parts deal with two themes that are most relevant as points of departure for the future: networks and strategies: networks and strategies. Strategies comprise attention to sustainable transformation of urbanised areas, including aspects of economic developments at European and global scale.

The history of spatial planning may show various focal shifts, lasting is the attention for the connection between societal and spatial aspects, for the actual and potential role of urban planning and design, for policies, actors and instruments, and for methodological issues. The shifts concern the subject of interest and the approaches.

In Shifting Sense thirty contributors from different universities ( Barcelona, Delft, Gent, Liverpool, Paris, San Antonio and Utrecht) and practices (public and private) offer their expertise and views. The initiators belong to the Chair of Spatial Planning in Delft University of Thechnology. The monumentum of the book is the retirement of Paul Drewe, Chair holder for more than thirty years, whose work seems metaphoric for the development of the discipline. The other twenty lasting relation to Delft Spatial Planning. They enthusiastically did so with their valued expertise, competence, interests and challenging views.
