This course is for students who would like to experience, study, and analyse contemporary Danish architecture and urban design first-hand. In this course, the city of Copenhagen is our primary classroom; with ‘walking tour lectures’, independent field studies, group seminars, and collegial debates being unfolded on-site, across a diversity of places within the metropolis.

Via specific case studies, this two-week intensive summer course tackles such wider themes as urban history, urban regeneration, architectural transformation, human scale and the everyday, liveability, sustainability, climate adaptation, multi-modal transport, participatory urban design, playscapes and urban recreation.

Course aim

The primary assignment for the course is a critical and analytical logbook. It is a place-based daily learning tool and a daily learning practice that challenges students to couple emplaced and embodied ways of knowing with more traditional forms of scholarly literature citation; grounding theory in place. Every walking-tour lecture and field study entails one required logbook entry/page, and each entry must combine textual and visual analyses alike.
