About us

The Institute for Spatial Development IRAP at the University of Applied Sciences Rapperswil was founded in 2000. Therefore we still represent a relatively young institute and yet together we can look back on longstanding research and practical work. Together we carry out applied science and planning support in various fields of spatial planning. In doing so, we cultivate an intensive exchange with lecturers of the department for Spatial Planning.


Represented in our interdisciplinary team are the specialized disciplines Architecture, Geography, Cultural Engineering as well as Town Planning and Transport Planning. This fact allows us to work comprehensively on complex tasks and to examine the relevant issues from different perspectives.
