On the 22nd of June 2018 two professors from the City and Landscape Department said goodbye to our Faculty of Architecture simultaneously: In a joined event Univ.-Prof. Dr.-Ing. Klaus Selle (Chair of Planning Theory and Urban Development) and Univ.-Prof. Kunibert Wachten (Chair and Institute of Urban Development and Regional Planning) reflected on issues that have not lost their relevance in the course of their professional work at RWTH. Topics such as housing policy and the issue of land use, the creative power of integrated planning and projects or the participation of state and non-state actors in urban development were examined with companions from science and practice in a stimulating and entertaining manner. The event ended with a review and outlook on architectural and urban planning education - and of course on the two professors.

The faculty would like to thank Klaus Selle and Kunibert Wachten for their excellent cooperation and their work far beyond Aachen. We wish them all the best for the future!
