Food in Nations

This gallery contains 2 photos.

Having no classes at school means more chances to have lunch in one of the nations. Now that I can start from A-building (or wherever I work on my thesis) earlier I can make it for one of those nations downtown. Here’s why I love it so much. It’s cheap (30-35 kr) and tastes good.It’s easy, it saves time – … Continue reading

Thesis Fuss

It’s been a long time since I posted last time, but today is a special day! Not only the spring semester started, but also some of my classmates and I finally handed our thesis registration forms to the international students’ coordinator. Why would a formality become such a big deal? The thing is, the paper shows that, first, the student … Continue reading

Days After the Final Presentation – still lots of things to do

Last week Sustainable Urban Dynamics course had the final presentation summarizing three months of our intensive work on the project in China. This time we received more critical comments from the jury and some of us got quite upset. Nevertheless, we’ve done a great job considering the workload and the constant lack of time. It is now the last phase … Continue reading

“The Dark Side of Sweden”

        Winter is coming, days are now considerably shorter even here, in the south of Sweden. Once I came to school early in the morning to prepare for the review, when it was still dark, and finished when it was already dark outside. This might seem depressing, but think about the streets illumination, popping up all over the … Continue reading

Architect goes to China with SUDes

This gallery contains 4 photos.

There’s been already a lot said about the study trip to China with SUDes. For me this term is full of joy and excitement even though the course (Sustainable Urban Dynamics – as a MARK student I have a bit more freedom to choose my courses and thus could take it) is very intense and time consuming. So I join … Continue reading

Master Thesis Presentations

During the last two weeks I was attending master thesis presentations, both Architecture and Sustainable Urban Design ones. Honestly, I don’t know why I didn’t do that last year, but it was a huge mistake. Following the conversation between the student and the examiners gives much more rather than just seeing the posters on exhibition, because it teaches you to … Continue reading

Architecture and Design Library. Make the most of it

Today I will talk about the library, which is one of my favourite spots at school. I know from my classmates that it often doesn’t make a good first impression because of the small size, but it’s misleading, trust me! First of all, people who work there are super nice and helpful. They can show you around if you ask … Continue reading

Your home away from home

Finding accommodation in Lund is considered one of the most challenging parts of student life. So it was for me 🙂 Without going deep into detail I would recommend you to keep on trying to get one from LU accommodation or AF Bostäder, or through the student nations, if you are still looking for it. This is a safer way … Continue reading

A-building — take a look inside

This gallery contains 8 photos.

For those who are preparing to come in August or just consider studies here, it might be useful to know a little about A-building. It looks quite reserved from outside, like many other university buildings in Lund, but after a short look one discovers surprisingly cool interior spaces. After a year one can say for sure that it is a … Continue reading
