Short about Urbanism & Societal Change

'Urbanism & Societal Change' is based upon the ambitions:

  • to embed the architectural/urban project within the dynamic conditions of contemporary society,
  • to couple research and design within the project process in order to formulate relevant responses, and
  • to train future architects as leading actors in the sustainable development of the built environment.
