In 2012 KADK’s board adopted a vibrant vision and a new strategic structure for KADK’s activities, under the title ‘Shaping the future’.
We are known internationally for the high quality of our science, art and teaching. Our vision is:
KADK wishes to be internationally recognised as the leading Nordic academy within the fields of architecture, design and conservation.
Our mission is to produce graduates and knowledge to shape our future, society and cultural heritage, springing from a unique match between reseach, practice and artistic research.
This should happen in an international campus environment with workshops, drawing board teaching and project-based education.
KADK’s graduates should be characterised by their awareness of how a special Nordic approach to form can be developed and transformed into new contexts. We want our graduates to enter the world with analytical, methodical and artistic skills, which empowerthem to create, transform and preserve the society and culture of tomorrow.
