Hi, In my portfolio I have summarized a selection of work that I have created during my soon five years as a landscape architect student. After taking the course Digital Landscape Visualisation, representation and visualisation of landscape architecture has become something I’m interested in but I also have a strong interest for sustainable design and the future storm water management in the city. Right now, I am writing my master thesis about how design for extreme cloudbursts can add new values to the city and its residents. I hope that my portfolio can show who I am as a landscape architect but also show how my knowledge and skills have developed throughout the years.

outdoor design. The main task during the coarse was to create a design proposal in group, based on the vision of a commission body. Everyone worked with Luftkastellet close to the Öresund bridge and my group worked with the Aspira Spa where the main problem to solve was the relation between private and public. Our project was called Changing Path and the concept was based on the different changes we felt would strengthen the site and the new spa. The main idea was to change focus from the today very dominant ocean towards the new spa garden that could allow

feeling small amongst giants FS 17 Course: Design Project - Advanced Planting Design Course leader: Karin Svensson Design Project - Advanced Planting Design is a course directed at developing advanced design skills and knowledge about design and plants concerning gardens, parks and flowerbeds in different contexts. Throughout the course, several planting design proposals are designed with different scales and site conditions. The final proposal was to create a planting design for one part of Malmรถ Botanical Garden. I chose to focus on the moist part of the Asian garden and developed a proposal with a concept based on a feeling, the feeling of being astonished and intrigued by the size of plants and leaves and to feel lost in a different world. To make the expression more varied I chose to work with two main characters, the dense rich forest and the light birch forest. The planting scheme for the perennials are based on a 4x4 meter box to create a varied mix.

visitors centre alnarp FS 2015 Course: Landscape Design and Construction Course leader: Arne Nordius The aim of the course was to gain basic knowledge about the different hard materials of landscaping and how they are used, landscape construction techniques and landscape design in an urban environment based on a realistic working process. The main project was to create a design proposal for a visitors centre in Alnarp and develop the proposal into rational and accurate drawings and technical descriptions for construction with routines adapted to existing Swedish standards. My proposal was a simple design with focus on “carpets� in different ground materials that would lead people to the new centre and then further into the Alnarp park. As a detail, I chose to design a bench that was central in my proposal.
