Guest Professor Peter Baumgartner from Danube-Univerity Krems, Austria visits Umeå


Peter Baumgartner (Danube-University Krems, Austria) held a very interesting workshop about the 15 properties coming from Christopher Alexander in Architecture. What? Architecture? Right! The concept of the workshop was to transfer these properties to education, teaching and learning. ...And it was great with a lot of inspirations and discussions! "An interactive experiment", Peter said.

Participants: Peter Baumgartner, Peter Bergström, Andreas Olsson, Lars Norqvist, Henning Eriksson, Nataliia Sharkova, Anders Norberg, Satish Patel, Peter Vinnervik, Krister Lindwall, Isa Jahnke
