For many years, Scandinavian countries have played a significant role in the movement of societies towards economic, social, and environmental sustainability. This course focuses on sustainable concepts and strategies to integrate new rigorous sustainable solutions into architecture, urbanism, design, and lifestyle choices. Case studies are used to investigate how concepts are applied in reality, to assess how they work at various scales, and to gain a greater intuitive understanding of them.
