Umeå School of Architecture
Umeå School of Architecture was founded in 2009. At the moment there are 175 students studying here but when the school is extended there will be room for around 250 students.
The school's education program is attracting students from the entire world and many members of staff have international backgrounds. The School of Architecture cooperates with the London-based engineering firm AKT and the Stuttgart-based engineering firm Transsolar, as well as with many Swedish and international architects.
Since it started in 2009 the school has gradually been developed as an international laboratory that encourages and educates artistic and innovative architects who want to improve society through a sustainable perspective as one of their goals.
