Welcome to the KTH Centre for a Sustainable Built Environment Blog

Today we launch a new blog for the KTH Centre for a Sustainable Built Environment. The blog will profile innovative research fields emerging at the university that have the potential to provide radically new approaches to the built environment.

“KTH is an inspirational place to be at the moment” comments Centre director Amy Rader Olsson, “with a diverse range of research areas emerging that will change how we address the built environment for the better”.

“Both for people at KTH and outside” continues Amy, “one of the key challenges we face is communicating this research and its potential in an effective way”.

The new blog will help KTH researchers and their partners share their findings.  It will provide bite-sized updates on new research frontiers on a regular basis with video and interviews.

“We will lead with a series of blogs profiling KTH’s work with Sustainable Homes” comments Emma Read Källblad, the blog’s editor and Centre coordinator, “ before moving on to look at DIY Urbanism, Smart Cities and Building Information Modelling (BIM)”. Regular updates from the Centre and its partners also shared on the blog will help connect readers to further events and activities.

To provide a base for these blog themes, we start today with a video that gives an overview of the Centre’s work and aims.
