Róbert Schuck Birth: 01/09/1992, Budapest Address: Emblasgade 83 1.tv. 2100 København Ø Phone: +4591930800 Email: firstname.lastname@example.org I am a third year Landscape Architecture Masters student, at the University of Copenhagen, specialised in urban design. I worked in very different environments and had been part of projects of many scales and approaches. I am passionate about sustainable development and new green approaches both in my professional and private life. The currently ongoing environmental crisis is most likely to be the biggest challenge that humanity ever faced. I believe that landscape architecture is one of our most powerful tools in this struggle. While keeping environmental issues in mind, it is still crucial to create spaces that facilitate human activities and are aesthetically pleasing. My wide knowledge of plants, digital, manual and verbal skills, furthermore international experience makes me able to contribute high value to the office’s work. I am eager to learn new things and looking for new challenges.

Artillery Gardens The new royal garden of Copenhagen
Location: Amager, Copenhagen, Denmark Area: 60 ha Group project with Lin Horn, Franziska Kolmer andvvw Pernille Vad NĂ¸rmark Course: Transformation Studio The Artillery Gardens have two major inspirations. The previously existing artillery training grounds and the royal forests, which were areas reserved for the monarch and his family for hunting. The former influenced our interventions and composition, while the latter is interpreted in a more democratic and contemporary way, by creating possibilities for foraging.
side. They are connected by an elevated boardwalk. With the boardwalk we grant access to visitors, but also raise them closer to the canopy where they can perceive nature from an unique perspective. The mounds are surrounded by three meters high beech hedges, which are framing the gardens of the five senses on top of the five wider mounds. In the Garden of Flavour, visitors can enjoy different edible species and herbs. As people walk through the Garden of Colours, they see the plants arranged in big patches according to their colour. The Garden of Texture is divided into three rooms: soft, smooth and rough. The rooms are framed by plants representing these textures. The Garden of Fragrances is planted with species that have intense scents. The Garden of Sound has three rooms within itself. One room, where water creates sound effects, one, where flowering plants attract insects and people can listen to their buzzing sound, and one sealed off, where visitors can enjoy silence. The mound with the Garden of Colour is different than the rest. Instead of having a wall to the north, it has a slope to integrate the open area with the old hangar. The building itself is used as an event hall, creating room for various community activities.
Framing & Overview The mounds in the north combined with the viewing platforms and the tribune in the south refer to the former structures of the artillery grounds, and they also create a strong frame for the central area, where the orchards are placed. This edge is emphasised by the enlarged canal in the south and east which also is a way to manage the waterlogging in the area. The vegetation also supports the distinction between the focus area, characterised by more open, low profile vegetation, and the edge zones covered by forests and thickets. The non-orthogonal placement of the orchards and the lack of Orchards and Viewing platforms a strict edge on the western side make the The orchards in the central area are surrounded by hedges and filled with various fruit trees composition less rigid and more dynamic. and shrubs. They offer opportunities for foraging. It is a very popular activity nowadays, The Paths - Access The long, narrow mound is the main entrance and wild fruit trees and shrubs are already to the park. It crosses the northern forest thriving and characterising the area.The four patch, where it is gently sloping up until three viewing platforms in the south grant visual meters height. This way it is accessible for access to the whole area. They are acting as everyone, and people can see the forest from landmarks and orientation points. On each of different levels.

T h e Tr e a s u r e I s l a n d Transforming identity at Folehavn
Location: Valby, Copenhagen, Denmark Area: 22,5 ha Group project with Anne-Mette Løve Dulong Gilbro and Thomas Lindtorp Pedersen Course: Urbanism Studio While exploring and researching Folehaven, we came to the realisation that the area possesses great qualities even though it is isolated and has a bad reputation. The area has a strong community, that helped to create public art pieces. There are large green areas in the neighbourhood and a petting zoo. We called these qualities “treasures’’, since they seemed to be hidden from outsiders and we felt like being on a treasure hunt. We built our vision of The Green Treasure Island on three strategies.
• The Dynamic Island, which is based on evolving vegetation and lively outdoor spaces. • The Shared Island, which is based on urban farming, education and citizen involvement. • The Inviting Island, which is based on good, visible and accessible connections. Following these strategies, we planned our interventions to realize our vision. • A bike connection from the urban spine of Valby to the new southern beach. Establishing a green, multifunctional plaza. • Making smaller neighbourhoods. • Introducing new functions and redesigning the vegetation. With the phasing of our design we created opportunities for further development and modification, therefore made the project more flexible and resilient.
Vision - The Treassure Island The vision of Folehaven is to change the rep- from a deserted island to a treasure island by utation of the area from negative to positive strenghthen the bond of the community inthrough the potential of the island effect of side and outside of the area. the place.

Moler Udstillings Park Knitting the edge
Location: Mors, Denmark Area: 140 ha Group project with Cecilie Bay Holm, Nicholas Dyakowski, Franziska Kolmer Course: Transformation Studio The unique landscape at Skarrehage results from eons of natural processes and continued human influences in the more recent past. Diatomic soils – resulting from the sedimentation and fossilization of microscopic phytoplankton roughly 55,000,000 years ago and subsequent exposure during the glacial retreat of 22,000 years ago – have distinguished this area as a profitable extraction landscape for centuries. Traditionally producing simple clay bricks and today yielding a range of industrial and domestic materials deriving from processed diatomite, this industry continues to be an integral part of the regional economy of Mors with the Damolin/IMERYS processing facilities at Skarrehage having developed as a central nodal point. In a changing situation where the deposits of diatomic soil on the island are soon to be exhausted, this site offers a compelling opportunity for transformation. With industry shifting towards a strict import/process/export model, the facilities here can act as a magnet for visitors at the site and begin to negotiate a shared landscape, limiting the industrial footprint and making spaces of interest more accessible Visitors to the site can begin at the existing Moler Museum, now acting as a showcase of rare fossil and rock artifacts and a base point for fossil hunting in the adjacent decommissioned quarry. Visitors can continue on foot or by car along the one kilometer stretch to the coast. An active quarry gives a view of the industrial extraction of diatomite on Mors while another decommissioned
quarry is open to exploration, showcasing unique spatial characteristics of the quarrying process. Descending from the MoClay shelf to the coastal wetland, the visitor arrives at the MoClay Centre. A converted factory building, the large complex now houses a Danhostel, industrial history exhibitions, café, ceramics studio, and diatomite lab where visitors can experiment small scale with cutting edge uses for the material – a hydroponic lab with diatomite as growing medium. These flexible facilities attract both tourists and regular local visitors alike. Continuing to the coast, visitors can pass through a historic drying barn that stretches approximately 200 metres, enjoying views of the adjacent wetlands, gardens, and Damolin/IMERYS facility. This dynamic visitor landscape is shaped by a range of interventions at the site. The reprogramming of existing, underutilized buildings nudges the industrial actors to shrink their footprint at the site given the changing nature of their presence here. Defining the boundaries and overlaps in usage for visitors and industry, a key point is a shared parking lot separating the Damolin/ IMERYS plant from the drying barn gardens. Framing pathways throughout the site, nature trails are anchored at points with brick mosaic platforms while a hardscape brick plaza is installed outside the MoClay Centre with a path stretch to the coast parallel to the existing drying barn. Working with vegetation, ornamental gardens beside the drying barn and overtop of a factory footprint adjacent to the coast create sightlines and zones of interest for visitors. More pragmatically, revegetation of steep and gentle slope zones of the quarries will secure their unique spatial character from erosion while reestablishing habitat. What results is a landscape that uncovers its natural and industrial histories while eagerly pursuing future transformations.

Mo-clay Vegetation Development The plantings are developed through the principles of nature-based forestry management and on the tolerance of selected species to wet / clayish soil. The vegetation in the area will consist of 60% Birch, 40% mixed Pines, Spruce, and 10% mixed Oak, Willow, Rowan, and reed on the open wet areas. The forest vegetation is established with large volumes of small trees planted close to each other. This will force the trees to grow fast and give volume from the start. Over time the vegetation will be thinned and eventually develop into a layered forest vegetation.
Next to the Drying Barn the existing tree stands are selectively cleared out in a pattern echoing the built structure of the barn.
Mi Archipelago Connectado The World’s longest coastal promenade Mi Archipelago Conectado Location: Alicante, Valencian Community, Spain Length: 25 km International design competition with Grupo Aranea during internship. Our team also included Subarquitectura. The goal of the competition was to design the World’s longest seaside promanade (25km). Some parts of the promanade are already exisits, but they are disconnected, fragmented little pieces. Due to continuous deterioration and erosion, the condition of the Coastline of Alicante reached a level that is close to unacceptable. Our design proposal is a tool that through multiple interventions is aimed to reverse the deterioration. Despite the mistreatment of the coast, it still retains opportunities to become a point of interest for both locals and visitors. The coast can no longer be understood as a longitudinal thin line, as a corridor. The very concept of a corridor defines, implicitly, a fine border between the sea and the city, at times so fine that it has been broken. We can easily see how the coast of Alicante has become in many points increasingly interrupted because
of urbanization. Longitudinal flows prevent transverse flows. If we see the coast as space, not as a corridor, the very concept of a coastal corridor could be replaced by that of coastal space. The corridor implies speed, narrowness - concepts all associated longitudinally. Space is the opposite. It implies habitation, more organic limits. From this new point of view, where the sea and the land come into contact can be variable and be understood as a border ecosystem characterized by intense processes of exchange of matter and energy, generator of experiences and strong attraction for society, economy and tourism. The mountain and water were the nuclei of today’s Alicante. The relation with the landscape and nature has severely weakened. At the time of limitless expansion, the coast, the residues of nature and the historical monuments can be the place where we start reintegrating the city. One of the key elements of Mediterranean landscapes are island. With a multidisciplinary approach, we identified the “island” that can grow into coastal spaces. By carefully connecting them, we can start the reintegration of the coastline and the city.
The Islands The map shows the islands identified on the coast of Alicante, and what kind of path is planned for the areas. It is also presenting already exisiting user groups. Our porposal also contain the development of an application, that locals and visitors can use to learn more about each island.

Doktorens Anlæg A reunited park
Location: Esbjerg, Denmark Area: 140 ha Design competition during my internship at BOGL. Our team aslo included Ingvar Cronhammar and AART architects. First a harbour was built and then a city was founded, where the sand hill met the sea. In 1879, the first person with a degree in Esbjerg, Doktor Brunn planted pines on the sandy slope. Later people wanted a place that they can use for recreation. So the plantation was transformed into a park in 1917. After this, for a whole century the history of the park was a series of interventions. Each of these intervention cut out a piece from the park´s green fabric: the amphitheatre, the bunkers, the harbour administration building, the parking lots, the Art Museum, the Music Hall and the service roads. Therefor, although the park has a lot of qualities and potential, it is very fragmented and disconnected from the city. As a result of this is it is highly underutilised and unknown even for locals. Our proposal ties together the park’s many valuable areas and create unified place. It strengthens the connection to the city - and the link to the Art Museum and Music Hall. We facilitate more, and more diverse activity in the park. To reunite the fragments, we propose a series of measures that will enhance coherence and a strengthen identity. The poetry of a classical city park has to return. We drew inspiration from the Swedish Folkparks of the 1950s and the bright atmosphere of the Parisian
parks around the turn of the century. A park that facilitates recreation and community and appeals to curiosity and imagination. The park has history, present and future. It is place where generations have lived. It is park for reflection, silence, joy, movement and play. It is robust and lightweight at the same time. Contrasts and experiences that arise in the present. One welcoming place that appeals to children and adults, young and old. For everyday use and for special occasions. The proposal creates a more coherent and unified park. The new park has a clear position in the city´s fabric, halfway between the urban areas and the sea port. To increase cohesion and to reinforce the unified green identity of the place, we are strengthening the edges all around. The large trees with the strong vertical trunks and the light shimmering through their dense foliage create a common spatial experience all around the park. In between these beech stands we created clearings to frame the activities of the park. The terrain is the basis for the park´s overall layout. The paths move in synch with the slopes and connecting the rooms, benches and amphitheatre terraces, so that a ‘flow’ is formed throughout the park. The furniture creates a special atmosphere, right from the moment you pass through the portals. All the inventory has a mint green colour that creates an appearance that is recognizable and likeable, while bringing a dreamy, artistic layer into the park. Together, the different layers of the proposal give the park a strong identity.

The proposal retains the beech trees ( Fagus sylvatica) as the park’s character tree. But several new species are added to create a greater variety throughout the park. In sun exposed areas, we suggest the establishment of perennial plantings with a lush, wild appearance with some characteristic solitary bushes. For example Viburnum with Hemerocallis, Phlomis russeliana, Heuchera and ornamental grasses. Primarily native species are used, but we also used some non-native species to help to facilitate larger recreational value, support bird and insect life, and to keep the necessary maintenance relatively low. To create more closure towards Østre Havnevej beech will be the dominant tree on the southern edge, with some smaller trees and different shrubs (Ribes, Lonicera). This shields the park from traffic, therefor amplifying visitor’s experience of staying in a green space. At the playground and Hulvejen, we suggest planting different smaller flowering trees, which would also naturally occur in clearings or edges in beech forest - for example Sorbus, Prunus cerasifera, Crataegus. Around the Port Administration and Landgangen beech are planted. Under the large trees we suggest the planting of bulb plants, such as Anemone, Scilla and Narcissus to recreate the vernal blooming of the beech forest floor. Planting proposal: beech, flowering trees, vernal flowers and perennials
