School of Architecture and Art Creative Campus

Yesterday, the new School of Architure at Umeå University was approved by the national authorities, and this also means that new Art Creative Campus definitely will happen. This is very exciting news for Umeå University and for HUMlab. We have an interest both in the new architecture program (which will have an artistic foundation) and the campus (where HUMlab will have a presence). Peter Kjaer (former head of the School of Architecture in Aarhus) will head the new School of Architecture. The new campus will include the the Institute of Design and School of Fine Arts (already localized there) as well as BildMuseet (museum of contemporary visual art), HUMlab (which will also remain on the main campus), an art/culture incubator and more.
