Maurice Harteveld has an uninterrupted focus on public space, particularly related to urban design and the architecture of the city. Although, at the current, this focus is shifting slowly to a more intercultural understanding of ‘human space’, hence ‘architectural and urban design for people’, this work is still adding to the reposition of design theory. Publications following his work on ‘interior public space’ and ‘interior urbanism’ (since 2005) are awarding and can be seen as such recognition. His international oeuvre, both in research and in education, brings urban design back to its fundamental interdisciplinary nature; - in the overlap of responsibilities; - in a non-structural way and - with users involved. In doing so, he specifically clarifies future challenges for designers based on socio-spatial dynamics. Synchronically, he reframes histories from the questions we have today. He does this within the Delft Design for Values Institute, DIMI, and among others AMS Institute. He also works at the Architects Registration Board of The Netherlands and he is a guest at various foreign universities.
