Reflections: SUDes Ambassadorship, China & a Life in Lund

This gallery contains 64 photos.

Hey hey! After a little over a year of being SUDes Ambassador, this will be my last post, and I will use it to FINALLY post that China gallery I’ve been promising on every post, and reflect upon my time here. Buckle up, it’s a long one, but I promise it’ll be worth it!

Living in Lund: Kämnärsrätten 1-room/Studio

This gallery contains 17 photos.

Hey hey! Today I’ll kick off the housing series as started by Ruben earlier today. He gave some great recommendations of jumping off points for your search and I’d recommend reading! As for me, after a long search I found my own little student studio apartment in an area near LTH called Kämnärsrätten (pronounced kinda like shaem-naers-raet-ten I think? Nobody ever … Continue reading

A Slow Start

Hey hey! Hopefully those of you who want to apply to SUDes have done so already (well, you kind of have to have done so since the deadline passed). As you may have noticed from other posts here, thesis semester is in full swing! Mine, however has started relatively slowly. The reasons for this are multiple. I stayed at home … Continue reading

Final Crits: The Method & Aftermath

Hey hey! As it is December, and as Tamara posted below, both SUDes classes had final crits 5-6th December and our exhibition (partially set up by me) is now open until at least the end of January.

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

Winter Is Coming

Hey hey! Here in Lund, since the clocks went back and winter is beginning to arrive (as is evident from my very Game of Thrones title), it is now dark more than it is light. This presents some interesting quirks that as a Scot (from further north than here) I am overly familiar with but still never get used to. … 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

SUDes Goes to Sichuan, China!

Hey hey! I’ll have to be ‘brief’ because I’m jetlagged to death. From October 6-15th, SUDes 2nd years were in Chengdu, Sichuan, China for a collaborative workshop with students from Southwest Jiaotong University. As well as being an amazing work opportunity, it was an incredible experience on its own. The biggest pro for the trip, however, is that it was … Continue reading

Orientation Is Over

Hey hey! As you all may have noticed, the orientation weeks are beginning to feel like a distant memory as classes ramp up. Here in the 2nd year of SUDes, we have already had our first China group analysis crit after less than 3 weeks of class. That among other things has delayed my posting of my experience as an … Continue reading
