We use different approaches to reach that understanding, by e.g. looking at how, depending on our different cultural background, we experience the built environment in a personal manner as well as part of society. We will undertake several field trips, mostly by foot through the town of Ísafjörður and learn about the story of planning and of the buildings of one of Iceland's oldest towns and one with the first city plan. The course also consists of lectures, group discussions and workshops.
