Presentation of Arc o Plan research group
Arc o Plan is a research group at the School of Architecture, School of Architecture and the Built Environments. The research group's strategy is to accumulate long-term sustainable knowledge about about architecture, physical planning and urban design. The research group consists of senior researchers and Ph D students.
Associate professor Magnus Rönn supervises the work of the research group. The empirical findings that the research group establishes are disseminated by use of theories and methods applicable to the architecture practice. This practical implementation of research based theories and methods serves as a measurement of their usefulness for practitionners in situations of multiple and parallel design scenarios. The research is focused on processes in relation to assessment, decision-making, planning, and the knowledge loop in architectural design projects.

The research strategy is implemented through various research and development projects that consist of senior research projects or Ph D student research project. The aim is to establish a sustainable base of knowledge within architecture. This research field is multi disciplinary by nature. A communal objective for the research group is to contribute to the development of knowledge that improve the practice of architecture. The research group develops theories and methods that will guide the architecture practice. This development includes the following themes:
- planning processes within building or physical detail planning
- assessment processes of architectural design and architecture in use
- implementation of experiences and knowledge in design processes.
These themes are explored within a scholarly framework that includes design theory, architecture, physical planning, and urban planning. The research methods reflect both the humanistic and sociological tradition. The research resutl has a broad scientific base in order to promote the work of the research group, and supply relevance for the research undertaken.
