Danish Architecture and Urban Design (fully booked)

Photo by Lars Gemzøe

In Denmark, architecture is seen as a much broader practice than merely the art of making buildings. The course provides an overview of Danish architecture, urban design, and planning over the last 100 years, particularly emphasising life-centred and human-centred perspectives on architecture and the built environment. Excursions and self-guided field studies to see and experience examples of architecture and planning are important elements of this lecture course. Examples of architecture with Nordic approaches to the planning and design of the physical environment will be presented and discussed. Culture, climate, scale, and inclusivity are important elements in how the Nordic Welfare States and the profession have dealt with international tendencies, as they are translated into local settings. These aspects and many other socio-spatial qualities will be unfolded and deliberated across the duration of the course.

Time: Tuesdays 16-18 (4-6 pm)
