Associate Professor

Member of:

  • Landscape Architecture and Urbanism

Anne Tietjen is associate professor in landscape architecture and urban design and active in the research groups Landscape Architecture and Urbanism and Spatial Change and Planning. She works with urban and rural transformation through spatial design. What are the politics and agency of design? Her research contributes to a growing body of relational urban design and planning theory, specifically based on new materialism and actor-network theory. Focus areas are strategic planning, urban/rural public space, heritage in planning, and research-through-design. Anne's work bridges theory and practice at the intersection of landscape architecture, urban design and planning. She is a capacity in design-based research in this field drawing on 12 years’ international experience of architecture practice.

Anne was trained as an architect at TU Berlin and ENSA Lyon and has a PhD from the Aarhus School of Architecture (2009) which was published as a book Towards an Urbanism of Entanglement: Site Explorations in Polarised Danish Urban Landscapes (2011).

Teaching

I teach in the international Landscape Architecture programme.

  • Co-responsible for the master course Theories of Urban Design (7,5 ECTS, since 2010)
  • Responsible for the master course Transformation Studio (15 ECTS, since 2014, not in 2020 due to sabbatical). The Transformation Studio works as a laboratory for strategic planning through landscape projects in shrinking rural areas. Bridging design research, education and practice we collaborate each year with a Danish municipality and work on site in dialogue with local planners, politicians, experts, project makers and communities. The resulting strategic landscape projects are collected in a course magazine to serve as inspiration for future development to our cooperation partners.
