Iceland University of the Arts, Reykjavík

The Iceland University of the Arts (IUA) is a self-governing Higher Education Institution offering higher education in fine arts, theatre, dance, music, design, architecture and art education. It is the only institution of its kind in Iceland. The IUA Department of Design and Architecture places an emphasis on students knowing about the ideological premise of design and design history and that they can, on the basis of their knowledge, take an informed stance on the environment and society. Design, in a way, revolves around seeing the possibilities in what is yet to take place. Students are continuously encouraged to seek new solutions and ways and to cultivate originality, imagination and a critical mindset.
