Urbanitet er vår tids viktigste kulturform. Men hva menes med urbanitet? Og hvor finner man den? Er urbaniteten begrenset til byen? Har den ett bestemt innhold? Eller kanskje den finnes i forskjellige varianter? Dette er blant spørsmålene som diskuteres i Jonny Aspens pågående bokprosjekt.
Urban space design has a long tradition in Greenland. While not immediately evident in the central urban spaces of the country’s towns, many of their planned residential districts have been carefully planned. In rapidly growing Nuuk, residential urban space is again in need of deliberate design development.
Researchers in the DWELL project offer advice to policy makers and stakeholders on the reception of refugees to Norwegian cities.
Participating in the Arctic Building and Construction project, we ask, “What is a good city under Arctic conditions?” Through fieldwork and interviews in Nuuk and other Greenlandic cities, researchers in the Arctic City research group collect and share relevant perspectives on urban space qualities for the development of urban space for the construction industry and the urban planning environment in Greenland – especially in connection with housing construction.
New PhD position: Nature-based solutions for climate change: upscaling landscape‐based climate mitigation and adaptation actions
The Institute of Urbanism and Landscape in collaboration with the Institute of Design at AHO offers a PhD position linked to a research project granted by the Research Council Norway named: NATURACT. This project seeks to develop three landscape-based transition plans utilising Nature-based solutions (NBS) in order to prevent and mitigate geohazard events primarly related to flooding in Norway.
