Professor Andreas Faludi is popularly known for taking a new approach towards planning theory in the history of planning education in the UK. He is an honorary member of the Association of European Schools of Planning (AESOP). After serving his term as Professor of Spatial Planning Systems in Europe at Delft University of Technology, he has recently been appointed a Senior Professor of Spatial Planning at the Department of Planning and Media Design at Blekinge Institute of Technology at Karlskrona in Sweden for teaching a course at the MSc programme on ‘European Spatial Planning and Regional Development’. On the 13th of June 2014 Faludi received an honorary Doctorate from University of Groningen, the Netherlands, for his groundbreaking work regarding the discipline of spatial planning. He started his career as a planning theorist through his appointment to write Planning Theory, accompanied by A Reader in Planning Theory, during the early 1970s. Pergamon Press commissioned it in reaction to the Royal Town Planning Institute’s curriculum for recognised planning schools. This booklet celebrates the completion of forty years since publication of his pioneering books in 1973.
