DCC Danish Architecture and Urban Design

Course content

Danish Architecture and Urban Design is a course in English for international students. Architecture is seen as a much wider practice in Denmark than merely the art of making buildings. The course gives an overview of Danish architecture and urban design over the last 100 years with an emphasis on the human perspective of architecture. Examples of architecture with a Nordic approach to the planning and design of the physical environment will be demonstrated. The culture, climate and scale are important elements in the way the profession and the Nordic welfare states have been dealing with the international trends and styles as they have been translated into the local settings. Field trips to see examples of the architecture and planning are important elements of this lecture course.
