Rikke is trained as an architect and landscape architect from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, School of Architecture, Design and Conservation (KADK), where she also received her PhD.

Research and practice

She researches methodologies addressing the body´s sensorium, a more dynamic, sequential, transient and aesthetic spatial approach towards landscape transformation and an extended sensory awareness in relation to design and planning processes.

For four years at UCPH-IGH, she has pioneered in the field of sensory analysis, conception, media mediations, especially film, and its co-creating role in place-based design and planning. Her current main research focus is sensory large-scale analysis and design and the embedded performativity capacity of drone filming to stir a sensory and affectivity reoriented planning practice in order to qualify the hybrid of natural and human-made landscapes.

For the last fifteen years, Rikke has developed and integrated her practice and knowledge on landscape transformations, design, planning, participatory processes, large-scale analysis and media mediations  through different research, teaching and practice collaborations. Besides research and teaching she has since 2003 had her own studio and worked as a planner before her position as PhD Fellow. Her PhD thesis 'Landscapetransformations' received the ICAR CORA Prize 2011, and also her studio mupLA has won prices for projects in multiple scales. She collaborates with architecture offices, artists, municipalities and holds/has had several trusts.

Rikke is part of the research groups 'Landscape Architecture and Urbanism' and 'Spatial Change and Planning' and part of the organizing group for the Copenhagen Landscape Lectures series.

News

I am a core member of the new Network.for Research on Drones. Understanding Drones through Aesthetics june granted by the Danish Research Council DFF/FKK.  The networks is a collaboration between SDU, KU-IGN, KU-HUM, AU, AAU, CBS and an international advisory board consisting of University of Bergen, Norway Simon Fraser University, Canada, Vrije University Bruxelles and Goldsmiths University of London, UK. SDU are hosting the network and the core group will have their first meeting in August/September. See: http://ign.ku.dk/english/research/landscape-architecture-planning/landscape-architecture-urbanism/boxe/news/ku-ign-is-part-of-a-new-network-for-research-on-drones-and-aesthetics-granted-by-the-danish-research-council-dfffkk/ 

Concepts of the film mediums capacity in design are discussed in the 2017 fortcomming book chapter 'Resonance and Transcendence of a Bodily Presence. How a filmic mapping of non-visual, aural and bodily relations in space can strengthen the sensory dimension in (landscape) architectural design' (Petersen, R. M. ; Farsø, M. in Architecture filmmaking, Troiani, I.; Cambell, H. (eds.), Intellect Ltd.

 

Teaching

Rikke has been teaching in Architectural schools since 2000. From 2012 at UCPH-IGN she has as course responsible initiated, planned and conducted design studio teaching at bachelor and master level and supervised bachelor, master and thesis students. She has as well been engaged as co-teacher and crit in other courses. Her current courses as course responsible are:

BSc Practice and Aesthetics in Landscape Architecture – Studio (HVÆS), 15 ECTS

HVÆS explores the interchange between body and horizon physically in space, abstract in theories and projective in mediation of media (drawings, models, photography and film). Aware work with such co-creation extends students sensory and aesthetic experience and cognition as basic practice in the profession. Students provide competences to develop individually and gain tools, skills and knowledge of aesthetics and a performative phenomenological design thinking and making, linked to current planning and design challenges.

MSc Landscape Film – Studio, 7,5 ECTS

Landscape Film - Studio is a design studio exploring new media, especially film, approach and language of design, and an extended aware ability to work explorative with media mediations. Students develop an individual design intervention focusing specifically on the film mediums embedded sensory performativity in design processes. The final course projects have to contain output in the different media and a site-specific proposal in film in order to stir new performative aesthetics.
