Sustainable Urban Design
The master's degree programme in Sustainable Urban Design aims at producing highly skilled and creative professionals capable of making the world’s growing cities into healthy, attractive and sustainable places.
The two-year, studio-based course of study equips students to manifest their social, economic and environmental intentions into spatial design. The scale and context of the projects develops each semester, to provide students with experience in various realms of urban design, from local urban recycling, to global urban dynamics.
Drawing on best practices and advanced research into urban form, urban quality, and sustainability, students design new neighbourhoods for decaying urban districts as well as improved structures for regional landscapes. Study trips to urban design developments in Europe provide opportunities for students to learn from both historic precedents and the newest practices.
Lectures and seminars provoke discussion into theories and ideologies of cities and sustainability. With an international student body, the discussions are expanded to include cultural dynamics and experiences from around the globe.
Ongoing collaboration between the Sustainable Urban Design programme at Lund University with high caliber, international universities, local Swedish municipalities, and leading architecture firms, creates an open and creative school of thought.
Urban design is a community based architectural discipline, and therefore the Sustainable Urban Design programme participates and facilitates events, exhibitions and workshops throughout the year. Students have the opportunity to exhibit works in public exhibitions and participate in events which ignite public participation in design questions
