Architecture and the Built Environment

KTH's research in the fields of architecture and the built environment focuses on the sustainable society of the future. We study how cities, buildings, and infrastructure should be designed and built, how institutions and how systems of regulation should be improved to provide a suitable living environment and good opportunities for industry to develop.
