Emnets innhold:
Through the analysis of a specific case of a contested landscape in a Nordic context (details are under development and may change in the future) that is thematically linked to GLA302, and the elaboration of a design-related problem-solving approach, students will learn how to apply design thinking in a global context. The studio course is problem-driven and encompasses major, fundamental issues. Topics, methods and objectives are specified in the studio brief (course outline).

Through studio work and/or field trip(s) students get an insight into the particularities of the specific case study and site, and how to carry out fieldwork (under consideration of research ethics). The specific landscape is explored, documented and mapped in the field and by other available sources, such as maps and written material. The analysis of all material and the design process are carried out within a studio framework.

Within this framework, students explore different theories, concepts, and methods that are relevant for the development of the design project, and test their application and relevance in an iterative process.

The students are guided through the project by lectures, short presentations, assignments as well as continuous feedback to the developing work. Feedback is provided by the responsible staff, and in the form of peer reviews, in one or two interim reviews as well as the final review.

Lectures, short presentations, fieldwork, assignments, reviews, peer reviews.
Tailored for each thematic framework, particular studio topic, and project, it will be made available at the beginning of each studio, in the form of a studio brief (course outline).


All submissions have to be submitted in the English language.

.The fieldtrip is not a compulsory activity.
