Umeå School of Architecture is located near to the Umeå River and was designed by Henning Larsen Architects.

The main function of the building is to provide the framework for inspiration and innovation about design and trends. From the outside viewed, the building looks like a cubic with its large and square windows. The laboratories are placed along the facades of the building.  The varied pattern of windows creates a strong visual effect and   offers a breathtaking view of the river.
