För kurser inom Chalmers utbildningsprogram gäller samma behörighetskrav som till de(t) program kursen ingår i.

Kursspecifika förkunskaper

Qualification for the master programme. Bachelor Degree or similar in Architecture, Architectural Engineering, Interior Architecture, Landscape Architecture, Design, Industrial Design, Spatial Planning, Civil Engineering. Participation in the previous Design Studio 1:A.


The main aim is to provide each student with necessary skills and methods that are valid in situations of change where design approaches are required at different system levels and scales, from urban structures, buildings and technical support systems to detailed construction elements and products. The point of departure is human everyday needs and the support of human survival and decent life in a specific environment.

The master program will work in close cooperation with stakeholders in different parts of the world, in industrialised countries as well as in developing countries. The purpose is to offer the students the potential to develop professional skills that are valid in various situations and where the aim is to find adapted solutions to the problems at hand. The overall perspective stays the same: the development and implementation of aesthetic, affordable, energy and material efficient, environmental- and user-friendly solutions that support dignified human everyday life.

Lärandemål (efter fullgjord kurs ska studenten kunna)

Ability and Skill - Be able to design and assess concrete proposals and solutions for local sustainable development. - Be able to visualise and communicate different proposals for clients, stakeholders and experts in different stages of the design process. - Be able to motivate different proposals with reference to scientific, or experience-based, knowledge and value-based arguments. Ability of Assessment and Attitude To combine scientific and artistic approaches in the design process. To broaden the understanding of their own perspective and its limitations, through meetings with other professional and cultural perspectives on sustainable development. To further develop a critical thinking and reflections on the professional role, the professional ethics and the needs for life-long learning.


- Design of a program for a design project following the strategies for planning and design developed in the design studio 1:A. - Design of a project according to the program. - Communication, presentation and exhibition on site for local stakeholders and inhabitants.


The number of participants in the studio is limited. Students must a) apply through an email to Sylvia Pompe at Studentcentrum (sylvia.pompe@chalmers.se) at least four weeks before the studio starts and b) show up at the first day of the course. If the number of students fulfilling these two requirements are more than the allowed number of participants, priority will be given to students from the master programme Design for Sustainable Development. Students not attending the first course day will lose their place and it will be offered to the next in line. Any exceptions from this procedure have to be cleared with the examiner in advance. For further information about admission and registration, please contact Sylvia Pompe at Studentcentrum (sylvia.pompe@chalmers.se).

Design studio 1:B is directed at design for local sustainable development in a smaller municipality/town in Sweden. The studio project includes on site activities in close cooperation with local authorities and communities. The work is performed individually or in smaller groups (maximum 3 students). The work will be supported by lectures, literature and seminars.


Same as for the design studio 1:A, complementary literature will be presented if needed in the different design projects.


Submission of accepted program and design project presented in booklet/essay and posters. Active participation in joint activities and the concluding exhibition on site.
