Anna Bluke-Hansen I am a highly motivated landscape architect who enjoys working hard to see ideas and inspirations become resloved and meaningful designs. During the early stages of my carrer, I have worked in London on numerous public realm, residential and urban planning projects including roof landscapes on new developments. Being a part of an enthusiastic design studio, I enjoyed furthering my skills in design detailing. From an early age I have had a keen interest and a wide knowledge of plants, which together with a passion for visual arts, led me to the field of landscape architecture. I continue to allow my interest in art and graphic design to challenge my work creatively. My aim is to become a valuable team member to a multidisciplinary design practice, and contribute my skills in creating memorable and sustainable landscape designs.

Shadwell Estate regeneration illustrative plan. 1:500
The regeneration project of Shadwell Estate, which dates back to 1866 and 1935, is carried out in response to the residents request for a wider range of activities and green spaces. The robust design proposal maximises the green open space, enhances biodiversity and unifies the estate through landscape treatments and activities. Food growing, play and garden areas are combined with seating and playful elements to create a dynamic, legible environment, that has a distinct sense of place and identity.
During the project work, I have taken part in the design development, produced an extensive package of presentation and technical drawings, taken part in and created material for public consultations. Working with key stakeholders, I took great interest in developing and detailing a planting scheme which meets the clientâ€™s vision.
Improved stepped access
‘‘Classic Courtyard’’ design concept
‘‘Flexible and Adaptable Layout’’ concept
A range of landscape design options were developed in response to the objectives and key stakeholder consultation. These designs explored different themes such as ‘The Big Garden’, ‘Flexible and Adaptable Layout’ and the ‘Classic Courtyard’.

Estate identity created by robust landscape elements
Planting concept Planting throughout the site will help provide year round interest, seasonal delight as well as improve ecology and biodiversity. Planting proposals will define the gateways and celebrate arrival into the estate. The garden areas will be planted to create two distinct types; gateway gardens and courtyard garden areas. The gateway gardens will have striking orange and red floral accents, injecting vibrant colour at these key spaces. The courtyard gardens are to use more subtle purple and pink tones to create a calming environment. The tree planting strategy will deliver a variety of tree species providing a varied canopy cover, seasonal interest and colour. Spring flowering species and trees with striking autumnal colour will enhance the gateway and courtyard areas.

Visualisation - GRIMSHAW Architects, UK
Generation Park is a proposal for a comprehensive mixed use development which aims to regenerate a brownfield site located to the south east of Norwich city centre. In addition to a new Community Energy Facility, which would include a biomass combined heat and power plant, the proposal includes the construction of residential and commercial units as well as new educational and research facilities. With a range of activity zones and changes in the landscape character, the park provides a multitude of recreational opportunities.
During the preparation of the planning application, I was involved in producing a range of landscape presentation plans and sections as well as technical drawings. I was responsible for developing a planting palette for the waterfront public spaces. The project work included many tight dead-lines and frequent collaboration with architects and engineers.
The submitted planning application consists of an outline application for the whole site and a detail application for the renewable energy center, riverside public realm and the Arrival Square.

The Southern G ateway The Southern Gateway celebrates the arrival at Generation Park from the south across the River Wensum. It comprises a series public spaces that step down alongside and through the buildings from the Arrival Square at the upper level to a south facing terrace. The terrace connects via a series of bridges across an existing inlet to the river edge. The Arrival Square is conceived as a shared space and point of welcome for cyclists, motorists and pedestrians. It has a consistent surface treatment, with careful delineation of movement through the space. Trees are contained within large circular planters with an integrated seating edge. They are arranged in clusters to create social spaces for the students to gather. Active ground floor uses along the southern edge enliven the spaces, encouraging dwell time and outdoor sitting.

SHARING THE FUTURE G l a d s a xe , D e n m a r k A n ex p l o r a t i o n o f a s u s t a i n a b l e future for industrial districts
Background The current industry model in Gladsaxe is based on individual businesses and a high degree of privacy. Most large businesses have extensive parking areas and private catering facilities. This model results in an abundance of paved surfaces and fenced off areas, and does not provide opportunities for social interactions and recreation. What if we change the industry model? This strategy proposes three themes of sharing in business districts which create more value for businesses, improve the image of the area and create a platform for social life.
Shared production & Storage
Shared green spaces
Responsibilities My contribution to the group project work included active participation in the concept and design development, producing visual material (plans and diagrams) and creating a coherent presentation book and posters.

The urban meadow evolves into an inviting green space acting as a catalyst for recreational activities and growth of businesses.
The Production District The production district hosts businesses that require infrastructure for production and cargo. Groups of production and office buildings are located around a central meadow, which has evolved from the depaved parking area. Prodcution buildings have the opportunity to share courtyards to maximise space efficiency, share storage and machinery, and benefit from shared security. A green boulevard connects the meadow to other large businesses in the area, inviting people to the shared knowledge centre and outdoor activity zone.

The Finding Place of the Sun Chariot in autumn season
Trundholm Mose is located in Odsherred Geopark. One of the Geopark’s aims is to highlight the historical qualities of the landscape and make them accessible for visiotrs. The project proposes to transform the reclaimed Trundholm Bog into a publicly accessible nature area. New wetlands and meadows will stimulate biodiversity, while a new route through the landscape will guide the visitors the the finding place of the Sun Chariot and tell the story of the Bronze Age landscape.
The project was developed in a small group where I contributed with site analysis, design development, graphical representation of the proposal (visualisations, plans, sections, diagrams) as well as writing skills. During the project work I often took on a team leader role and assisted fellow students with learning Adobe programs.

Trundholm Mose was a part of Litorina Sea, a prehistoric form of the Baltic Sea.

Area of Trundholm Mose
The freshwater lake grew over until Trundholm Bog was formed.
The Bronze Age people who lived in Odsherred worshipped the sun as a life giving source. During this time objects of great value were deposited in bogs and lakes as ritual offerings to the powers above. The Sun Chariot is a national treasure iconic of the Bronze Age. It illustrates the idea that the sun was drawn on its eternal journey by a divine horse. It could have been used in rituals to illustrate the motion of the sun.

Decreased agricultural value leads to recreational use
Finding place of The Sun Chariot
Since Trundholm Mose turned into a bog the farmers began to seek interest in establishing new grasslands for the production of winter feed for the livestock. The bog was drained in 1799.
The Sun Chariot was found in 1902 when the fields were first ploughed. During the 20th century a more intensive drainage system has been introduced to support the growing agricultural use of Trundholm Mose. At this time the fields were divided and sold to private owners.
Today parts of the area are suffering from severe flooding due to the agricultural use over the past 100 years. Many lots are not used any longer and have lost their agricultural value. Today the area is mainly used for hunting and recreation. There are still grass fields and few farmed areas.

RENATURALISING THE WATERSYSTEM
PROVIDE LOCAL ACCESS TO NATURE
By reintroducing and developing the original nature types which are characteristic of Trundholm Mose, there will be better conditions for diverse animal and plant life.
Taking away some of the drainage in the heavily waterlogged areas will increase the wetlands, but also provide new habitats and minimize pollution from agriculture.
Access to Trundholm Mose is improved by completing missing paths. The Sun Chariot Route consists of pathways in the landscape as well as new broadwalks.
The Sun Chariot Route The Sun Chariot Route allows visitors and local residents to experience diverse aspects of the nature in Trundholm Mose and leads to the Finding Place of the Sun Chariot. The route takes visitors along new features in the landscape which encourage exploring the bog from above and close within.

Current experience The Sun Chariot finding place today is marked by a stone, which is flooded most of the year. It is situated close to the A21 expressway, where the open fields are creating a vast solitary atmosphere. Behind the finding place there is an old wooded bog. It is uninviting to the visitors, but gives a melancholic feeling from the lost history of the Bronze Age. Despite the slight traffic noise, there is a solitary and mystical atmosphere which is enhanced by this project.
Enhancing the mystical atmosphere The bog is enclosed from the open meadows and the A21 expressway by new light canopied trees. The path through the meadows hints at a destination in the wooded bog. A single boardwalk leads the visitors into the bog allowing to walk around and experience the mystical qualities of a Bronze Age ritual site. From September to May every year the finding place is flooded, adding to the essential experinece of a bog, and making the trip worthwhile in winter. The boardwalk is built around the stone which marks the historic finding of the Sun Chariot. Its position ensures that the stone is close to the path encouraging visitors to walk around the boardwalk, yet unreachable during the winter season. The finding place is completely transformed in summer, when the ground is dry, and visitors can sit on the boardwalk around the stone and hear about the Bronze Age history. Walking through the small bog, the visitors arrive at the Sun Chariot Route and are invited to experience more of the Trundholm Mose landscape.

Background Vestparken investigates a reintroduction of Harrestrup Å into the surrounding landscape, using water flow and its interaction with the surrounding areas, and topography as the main source of inspiration. The stream changes character as it flows from Damhussøen down to the bay of Kalveboderne, highlighting different local identities. The distinctive ways to interact with the water will create different atmospheres, and provide various experiences for the people in the Copenhagen metropolitan area.
Damhussøen Damhus Fields
Having actively participated in the concept development, I was then responsible for the detailed design of Kalvebod Delta as well as assisting on the design of the whole site. My task was to create a coherent masterplan, which shows a high level of detail. Exploring the topographical challenges, I also proposed practical solutions to accommodate the dynamic water levels.

Coastal vegetation is a very hardy type of planting, and it grows on rocks, gravel and sand. Low -growing, salt tolerant grasses and herbs include: Festuca rubra, Silene nutans, Hypochoeris radicata, Galium verum, Jasoine montana. The flowering plants sttract butterflies.
Saltwater meadows are often flooded and consist of moisture and salt tolerant grasses and herbs: Nardus stricta, Festuca ovina, Cochlearia danica, Lotus corniculatus, Ononis spinosa, Trifolium fragiferum, Beta maritima, Triglochin maritimum and others.
The wetlands are characterised by gradual banks where marsh, wet meadow and dry meadow plants grow depending on the landform and water quantity. Contrasts can be seen in the wetlands where a small retaining wall separate two vegetation types. Stone retaining walls and gabions are used to increase biodiversity.
