An intensive design studio introducing students to a glocal issues focusing on complex elements of the public realm with attention to the urban fabric as a generator of social life in public places; the program modules (2 and 3) will provide the basis for the content that is needed to accomplish this studio. Students work in small groups/gilds to produce an urban design project with a specific proposal to a selected urban issue addressing a complex reality, social, economic, environmental, or cultural. The context and the project task is “glocal”, i.e. Swedish or -and, European based but at the same time addressing similar problems and challenges globally. The project advances the idea of learning from history of urban form and creating contemporary urbanism that is of "cityism" - city like qualities and character, dynamic and kinetic, of a livable community feel and democratically inclusive place, and of high urbanity where the public realm, squares, streets, quarters and public life play a pivotal role in shaping and composing the spatial form.

The objective of this course is to provide students with an active learning experience during which they will acquire both theoretical and practical knowledge in the realm of urban planning and design, regional development and urban sociology. The aim of the course is to assist planners, architects, urban designers, civil engineers and human geographers, to understand the concepts, skills, and strategies that are needed in dealing with contemporary cities, i.e. global metropolitan regions faced with increasingly complex challenges as well as opportunities but also converging crises ranging from climate change, economic crisis, urbanization to growing diversity and movement of people. This course aims to develop skills, through various course modules, for addressing metropolitan structural changes and for exploring strategies that will make a difference both at the city and on a regional scale. Both European/Nordic and non-EU (American, African and Asian) situations and cases are studied. An investigation of these will not only address site-scale planning & design issues but also it will cover in depth the broader social, ecological, cultural and political processes that dynamically shape our urban spaces, landscapes, and people’s everyday lives and experiences. The course “Challenges for Metropolitan Urban Regions” sets out to examine the multiple, multifaceted and competing forces that influence the (place) making of contemporary metropolitan cityscapes.

This course is organized as an advanced seminar facilitating information exchange and discussions. It will focus on the thought, principles and places that have shaped the history, theory and practice of urban design and physical planning. Examples will illustrate how urban form is shaped by both strong blueprint planning/design interventions and incremental historicaal and morphological evolutions. The course will highlight fundamentals of shaping and composing cities and the main elements of urbanism - the neighborhood, the block, the square, the street and the building. The course also reviews the contemporary ideals in urban planning and design - current paradigms in urbanism.

The Studio is a part of three studio project series and it is the International Placemaking Studio, preceded by the Nordic Studio - Urban Public Places and Advanced Urban Space Studio. The aim for all three studios is to foresee urban planning and design issues and problems that will be coming into the public focus in the near future. After completing this international studio the students will be able to fully grasp and understand the dynamic conditions acting on modern cities, specifically issues of regional urbanization, urbanistic genericism and informal globalization. Creating consciousness through concrete examples that place the social reality of a site at the forefront of political discussion will be a nunaced element that the students will acquire during the course of their work with the project. Students will be able to adopt a placemaking approach that is a humanistic process defined by reality. The studio adopts concrete strategies for physical appropriation and production through the students work which will envision a platform for public performance to serve as a catalyst for social reform. Finally the studio offers students a completely different approach to intervention in the public realm, one of kinetic accupuncture method based on inclusivity and transformative placemaking strategies - making a public space into a living place.

The MSc in Accounting and Financial Management is designed to prepare students for careers such as financial analyst, business controller, chief financial officer (CFO), investment banker, consultant and auditor.

As a graduate from our program you will have a deep understanding of how financial and non-financial controls can be integrated and used for steering purposes in multinational companies, how large companies report to external share- and stakeholders and how those evaluate the financial and non-financial performance of companies in for example valuation settings.

This one-year Master’s programme is aimed at graduates from the fields of architecture, landscape architecture, urban design and city planning who are specifically concerned with design issues of the public realm and the effects these have on social life and human behaviour. Our focus is to deepen theoretical and design knowledge, changing the mindset of professionals regarding the importance and value of the public realm in the design of our cities.

The rationale behind Urbanism Studies is for professionals to understand and work in interdisciplinary design and planning teams, coupled with the growing desire for cities to establish different, new forms of urban living. As the goal of this programme is to move design thinking from objects to places, our core Urban Studios differ from traditional studios in several ways.

Our approach involves in-depth explorations of urban design issues by combining five topic-based modules situated within the three studio courses. Ongoing seminar reading series and urban film studies are included in the studios. The integrated final project builds upon the previous three studios, leading to a thesis portfolio that reflects the main achievements and thinking of each student as an outcome and product of their intense, focused learning throughout the year.

Furthermore, students are offered the opportunity to collaborate with some of the leading Built Environment (Urbanism) programmes in the world: ETH Zürich, CED at UC Berkeley, UCL Bartlett in London and Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in Boston. This affords students fantastic global collaborative opportunities on a wide range of real world cases. Urbanism Studies is externally supported and financed by Ax:son Johnson Foundation, as well as by KTH – Royal Institute of Technology.

Urban Sociology and Environmental psychology are interdisciplinary fields focused on the sociological study of life and human interaction in metropolitan areas and the interplay between individuals and their surroundings as well as the role of cities in the development of the society as whole.This module introduces the students to the major theoretical formulations and models in the area of environmental psychology related to people and places, such as privacy, personal space, place attachment and environmental restoration such as place identity, place attachment, environmental consciousness, behavior settings and others. Also the course explores new urban theory, as well as the evolution of cities including suburbanization, race relations, gentrification, street life, sustainability (economic, social and environmental), redevelopment, urban politics, and key international comparisons. Readings in the course focus on theory, specific cities, and environmental concerns. Course will also address issues such as effects of the economic crisis on housing markets, democracy on public policy, and questions of social status, gender, lifestyles, and culture on urban development. Relationships between the physical environment, natural and human-made, and the behavior of human beings will be studied in-depth; focus is on perceptual, cognitive, and motivational aspects of the human-environmental interaction. Specific physical settings will be studied from the behavioral aspects in relation to issues of spatial determinism.

An intensive studio introducing students to the Scandinavian-Nordic context and region, focusing on the public realm with attention to the urban form analysis, social life, landscape design and processes of collaborative work in strategic planning and implementation of public space. Students work collaboratively to produce a project that is theoretically rooted in the form of a strategic urban design public space project on the city level. This course is about rethinking the public realm and designing new public spaces - an urban square or an urban park in the urban landacape. The space should have an actuality in the local political discussion as well as the global discussions about climate and ecological issues but also the issues of human scale, enjoyment, aestethics, history and culture. Public space should be complex and contain a variety of functions and programs for all. The question that will be raised is how can we work according to long-term goals when the public’s mood, expectations and desires change so easily? The question of what should be public spaces, and what our public should be like, is highly political, since we all have different opinions of what constitutes a good life. Can we design and maintain public places for good life based on timeless principles of civic design? Can Urban Design, Landscape Architecture and Urban -Town Planning have a common language and understanding when it comes to design of urban, nature and landscape sensitive places - public realms that should be attractive, enjoyable, engaging, inclusive but also lifelong transformative.

Subjects in the course will encompass the elements and patterns of city form, visual imaging and photography, morphology of the city, analysis of ideal public spaces, static and dynamic forces of social life that compose and shape the urban realm. Dynamics of nature and culture, social encounters, urban narratives, architectural ensembles, and urban settings will be elements that are studied in-depth throughout this module. This course will be based on the reintroduction of the utilization of “observational urbanism” as a method and tool for studying the public realm and social life therein. This course is fundamentally about researching the city which will include tools for analysis of public space using mental mapping, behavior mapping, critical city walks, photography methods, and space syntax analysis. Course will conclude with the analysis of a selected problem in the particular locality with the participants oral presentation within the closing colloquium that will include invited critic guests. The course consists of combinatory modulets - theoretical and methodological training (literature review, analysis of case studies in literature related to publis spaces), field trips and data collection (practical training of research techniques and tools) and basics in observational urbanism, city walks, visual mapping, space syntax, transect studies, link and task analysis and public participation.
