Danske Landskabsarkitekter publishes an updated collection of examples on circular economy!

The updated edition of the best practice collection ‘Circular economy in landscape architecture’ contains a number of new examples of how landscape architects through circular design contribute to the green transformation. In order to spread the knowledge of Danish landscape architects’ use of circularity outside the country’s borders, the publication is now also published in an English language edition.

The climate crisis is on everyone’s lips, and there is great interest in developing new solutions that reduce the climate change impact. Circular economy is one of the tools and to show the parties in the construction of how landscape architects actively contribute to the green transition using circular principles, Danske Landskabsarkitekter now published an updated version of the publication ‘Circular economy in landscape architecture’.

New examples of circularity in the landscape – now available also in English!

The updated edition of ‘Circular Economics in Landscape Architecture’ contains four new example projects: ‘Køge Nord’ by Schønherr, ‘Tuborg Strandeng’ by Julie Kierkegaard, ‘Nordre Fælled’ by ORCA and ‘Hempel Kollegiet’ by JJW Arkitekter. In addition, the methodology has been updated and illustrates how landscape architects can apply circular principles in their projects. To meet the great international interest in the first edition, the new version is also published in English.

The landscape architecture is already green, but circularity makes it even greener. The publication is based on the fact that the landscape architecture is basically green. But also that landscape architecture can be made even more environmentally friendly and resource-conscious by incorporating the principles of circular economy.

Martin Hedevang Andersen, President of Danish Landscape Architects and owner of ORCA, talks about the great interest in circularity in landscape architecture.

“In these years, there is a great development within circular economy in landscape architecture and in construction in general. From the beginning, the idea has been that ‘Circular Economics in Landscape Architecture’ should be dynamic and continuously updated with new examples. Our ambition is for the publication to inspire national architects, builders and other actors in the construction value chain to how we can jointly incorporate circular principles into landscape architecture. With the English edition, we also hope that we can spread the knowledge of circular landscape architecture outside Denmark’s borders, “explains Martin Hedevang Andersen and concludes,” In the Danish Landscape Architects’ committee for circular economy, we have put a lot of effort into the publication, and we hope that the future brings several circular discussions, experiments and completed projects - both for the sake of the landscape and not least for the sake of the planet.”

‘Circular Economics in Landscape Architecture’ is written by Jakob Sandell Sørensen, MDL and associate partner at Schønherr, Jan Støvring, MDL and Senior Research Consultant, Department of Geosciences and Nature Management, University of Copenhagen, Torben Møbjerg, MDL and partner, COO at LYTT and Martin Hedevang Andersen , MDL, Chairman of Danske Landskabsarkitekter and owner of ORCA
