Urban Design - Transformation

The research group of Urban Transformation conducts research in relation to the rapid change of our cities in the post millennium period, focusing on the investigation of dif­ferent methods and approaches to handle contemporary urban challenges in order to create tools that can support a more sustainable and long-term proof urban development. We are triggered by a desire to explore and create new ways of planning and designing our future cities, both in the rapidly expanding urban agglomerations as well as within the smaller cities outside the urban growth centers. Further, the research field consider the urban and rural landscapes as having a prevailing role in the development of the future build environment. This research field addresses issues related to how the development of urban areas can be achieved with an emphasis on quality; among others focused on in research on urban landscapes and public spaces, catalyst architecture, hybrid programming, art and temporary use as well as issues related to hydrology and climate adaptation, demographic growth and decline, and site-specific development.
