Institute of Urban and Regional Planning

The transfer of research content to the ( professional) public is our participation in current debates on urban and regional planning.

Current publication series


The "ISR Impulse" is an open access series published by the Institute of Urban and Regional Planning at the TU Berlin and published online. The series publishes student work produced at the institute. This makes "ISR Impulse" a reflection of the wide range of pressing challenges and social issues in urban and regional planning, as addressed in teaching and research at the ISR. The "ISR Impulse" makes findings from ISR teaching and research accessible to an interested professional public and thus offers discussion and thought-provoking approaches for planning practice and science. In this way, the series contributes to the positive external image of the Institute. Last but not least, the series gives prospective students an impressive insight into the topics of teaching and research at the Institute. The series has been published since 2007 (formerly "ISR Impulse Online" and "ISR Graue Reihe"). The volumes are published via the repository DepositOnce.
