About

Sustainability as a principle is integrated into material choices and building systems. Natural forms provide inspiration for biomimetic design.

Our department is situated in the Faculty of Fine Arts and Design that provides a unique setting with its five different departments allowing close interaction with inter-departmental activities and courses.
