New Nordic Scopes
Through projects from the Nordic countries, the exhibition, MANMADE ENVIRONMENT demonstrates that landscape architecture is about so much more than aesthetics. Used strategically it can supply sustainable solutions, promote health and improve living conditions for people in both urban and rural areas. It brings attention to the importance of finding alternative, interdisciplinary planning methods; strategies that emphasize conscious use of natural resources and combine new expertise and technology with awareness of local conditions, culture and identity.
MANMADE ENVIRONMENT is a collaboration between Danish Architecture Centre (DAC) and Norsk Form, based on an original idea by DAC. The Swedish Museum of Architecture, the Museum of Finnish Architecture and the Nordic House in Reykjavik have contributed to the curating of the exhibition content.
