Democratic Design - C.F. Møller

Democratic Design

Democratic Design focuses on the relationship between people and the built environment, and contributes to the development of projects based on social sustainability and a democratic approach to co-creation, responsibility and inclusion. The department has an interdisciplinary approach and combines competences in architecture, urban planning and anthropology.


There is a growing awareness of the quality and sustainability of the relationships we create between people and their environment. Organised objectives such as the UN Sustainable Development Goals and sustainability certifications require us to consider and actively work with this, but also in the general public debate about the design of our cities and buildings, there is an increased focus on communities, sustainability, inclusion and co-creation.
