Zoom in on the conditions for a good urban life

Cities and public spaces provide an opportunity to maintain and increase biodiversity, adapt to climate change and create opportunities for many groups of citizens. But it takes a focused effort. The urban design courses include urban architecture, urban development and sustainable cities focusing on how cities and city spaces can be established and reshaped to provide the optimal conditions for both nature and the people living there. The courses also focus on the diversity of stakeholders and how planning can promote greater equality in the access to a good urban life.

Regulatory contributions to sustainable development

Insight into environmental and planning legislation is particularly important in regard to designing new urban initiatives. Combined with basic legal methodology, this knowledge will enable you to discuss potential paths for development and concrete solutions that take environmental law issues into account.

Ways of Living: Danish Architecture & Urban Design
The city of Copenhagen is our primary classroom, and walking lectures, sidewalk seminars, independent field studies, and collegial debates will be unfolded across a diversity of places within the metropolis. ‘Ways of living’, in this course, encompasses and addresses a diversity of human and nonhuman actors and relationalities, and acknowledges that architecture and urban design are never stand-alone but are always entangled as parts of something both bigger and smaller than themselves – both materially and immaterially. Part of UCPH International Summer Programme.
