Lina Berglund-Snodgrass
I am a landscape architect with a PhD in spatial planning. I am engaged in research and teaching in the broad area of urban planning and local development.


I am a university lecturer and researcher in landscape planning with a special focus on urban planning at the Department of Landscape Architecture, Planning and Administration since January 2022. Prior to that, I was a senior lecturer in spatial planning at Blekinge University of Technology, where I was engaged in research, supervision and teaching. I was a member of the organizing committee for AESOP's annual congress in Gothenburg 2018 (which was held in collaboration with Chalmers, KTH, GU, and BTH), and was especially responsible for organizing the doctoral student workshop. I have a past as a practicing landscape architect in London, UK, where I, among other things. worked with the design, planning and strategic development of schools within the framework of the British investment program 'Building Schools for the Future' (BSF). 


My teaching experience is quite broad where I have developed, led / and or participated in introductory courses in planning theory, studio courses on local development based on postmodern planning theories, autoethnographic methods in rural planning, the relationship building development and technical infrastructure, and on programming. 


My research interests concern planning in a fairly broad sense, where I am, among other things, interested in questions about urban planning (changing) points of departure regarding, for example, its underpinning ideas and knowledge(s). I am currently involved in four different research projects together with researchers at other universities. Three research projects are funded by the Swedish Energy Agency and K2 (National Knowledge Center for Public Transport) and are broadly about how phenomena such as urban experiments and testbeds affect / change current planning processes. Here we are interested in testbeds and urban experiments in the field of housing and mobility. For example, we have followed several pilot projects with car-free houses in Sweden, Nordic test bed planning processes, and new innovation actors and platforms. One research project funded by Formas and Forte is about housing and living environments for people with mental disabilities. Here we are interested in both the municipal housing responsibility and the location of special housing as well as the group's experiences of its living environment. We will also arrange a future workshop to find ways to strengthen the municipalities' work with regard to the target group's interests and needs.

I also sit on the editorial board of the Swedish journal PLAN. 


I am currently the assistant supervisor for Ida Nilsson's PhD dissertation on rural planning. She is expected to defend her dissertation in 2023. I have supervised a number of bachelor's and master's theses in spatial planning at Blekinge University of Technology, including Linnea Rosenberg's work on locating and designing so-called mobility hubs that received the Karlskrona municipality's planning scholarship in 2021.
