Our Role

The role of the Faculty is to strengthen research, teaching and innovation in the fields of landscape architecture and planning, with a focus on the sustainable development goals. As the world continues to urbanise at an unprecedented rate, the demand for our work in P&D is more urgent than ever. Our planners, designers and landscape architecture innovators are working to empower communities, protect natural and cultural environments and confront the most pressing challenges of our time.

The Faculty of Planning and Design conducts research and teaching in the fields of planning sciences and landscape architecture. The Faculty focuses on planning, design, construction and management of our environments. The strategy of P&D aligns broadly with the strategy of the AUI, in that the emphasis is on enhancing research, teaching, innovation and international collaboration. Further, the emphasis of activities within P&D on environmental issues and planning different land use contributes to distinguishing AUI from other universities in Iceland.
