Umeå School of Architecture is a new international laboratory for experimental architecture, rather than a traditional educational institution. Inaugurated in 2010, it is the first start-up training provider of architects in the country since 1964. Here, 250 of tomorrow’s architects are trained on an artistic basis, with project-based teaching of various methods of integrated design. It makes the training unique among Sweden’s other architectural colleges.

The key words for this education is sustainability, resource awareness and international perspectives.Together with the Institute of Design, Fine Arts and HUMlab-X which represents the School of Architecture at Umeå University arts campus where artistic and scientific perspectives are intertwined.
