Urban morphology
The first theme is quite practical: urban morphology - the use and transformation of the urban structure. This theme is linked to social, economic and ecological sustainability.

Urban ontology
The second theme 'Urban ontology'​ is of a more theoretical kind. The understanding of the  relationship between the individuals, the social context and the environment is theory dependent. By studying the urban structure's position from philosophical, socioligical, and political perspectives the concept 'urban'​ has been theoretically analysed. This analysis has contributed to a further understanding of various perspectives how to perceive the  'urban'​ and the built up environment in a societal context.
