Henriette Steiner is Associate Professor at the Section for Landscape Architecture and Planning at the University of Copenhagen. Educated in Cambridge and Copenhagen, she graduated with a PhD from the Department of Architecture at the University of Cambridge in 2008. Before joining the University of Copenhagen in April 2014, she held a position as Research Associate in the Department of Architecture at ETH Zurich in Switzerland.

Her research investigates the cultural role and meaning of architecture, cities and landscapes. She is author of the book The Emergence of a Modern City: Golden Age Copenhagen 1800-1850 (Routledge, 2014) and has co-edited several journal issues and academic collected volumes including the forthcoming book Architecture and Control (Brill, 2017).

She is sub-project leader in the research project Reconfiguring Welfare Landscapes, funded by The Danish Council for Independent Research. See

Member of the Study Board (studienævnet) for Geoscience and Management.


The volume Phenomenologies of the City: Studies in the History and Philosophy of Architecture (Routledge) which I have edited together with Max Sternberg of the University of Cambridge will soon be available in a paperback version.

Together with Ellen Braae, I am editor of the forthcoming volume Routledge Companion to Landscape Architecture. The volume will contain twenty-five chapters and provide a comprehensive entry into state-of-the-art research in the field of Landscape Architecture. Questions of politics, ethics and sustainability will run through many of the contributions, so will questions of aesthetics and/or design. The list of contributors includes: Tom Avermaete (TU Delft), Peter Carl (London Metropolitan University), Lisa Diedrich (Swedish University of Agricultural Science), Christophe Girot (ETH Zurich), Matthew Gandy (University of Cambridge), Eric Haldenby (University of Waterloo), Gini Lee (University of Melbourne), Martin Prominski (Leibniz Universität Hannover) and Anne Spirn (MIT).
