Landscape Technology

We work with water, terrain, plants and their relation to landscape architecture. The aim is to create the best methodological foundation for development, operation and management of green and sustainable urban environments.

Improved Construction Technologies

Landscape Technology research aims to expand the foundation for landscape architecture. It is about improved construction technologies and new nature-based infrastructure services. Examples of targeted fields are dynamics and establishment of vegetation; climate adaptation, water treatment, and erosion control; and enhancement of urban nature. We combine a wide range of disciplines including among others landscape architecture, environmental chemistry, horticulture, urban planning, biology, civil engineering, GIS and modelling.

Sustainable Development

The overarching aim of our research is to combine life sciences with urban landscape design for sustainable development. As seen from the list of publication and projects our research spans from planning and management of urban landscapes to innovation and testing of specific techniques and methods for sustainable development through landscaping.

Collaboration and Networks

We collaborate with Department of Plants and Environment, Danish Technological Institute, GEUS, municipalities, companies and a couple of Universities.

We are for instance a part of the Danish network of climate change adaption: Det Nationale Netværk for Klimatilpasning

Cities need protection against rising sea water

Beach area in Amager Beach Park

Storm surges and sea rise will potentially affect more than half of Denmark's 100 largest cities. Researcher Ole Fryd visits in this video Amager Strandpark and presents four fundamental models for the protection of cities, roads and recreational facilities along the coast.

Permeable asphalt helps prevent flooding

City with permeable asphalt in front

How does permeable asphalt work in practice? Senior Consultant Jan Støvring is investigating a project in Frederiksberg. In this video he talks about the preliminary results, which, among other things, prove that it is important to clean the roads thoroughly each or every other year.

Water Recilient Green Cities for Africa

Climate adaptation

See the video from the project Water Recilient Green Cities for Africa, which aims to create climate resilient urban areas in Tanzania and Ethiopia through university cooperation. The results from the project can be found on the project website.
