The Association of Danish Landscape Architects (DL) is an organization of interests with influence in a number of professional organizations, ministries and grassroots associations. We actively participate in the political debate, where we work to make our work as landscape architects more visible. We create a framework for networks and activities that enhance your professional development.
We currently have about 800 members, of which 200 are students. Everyone must use the title ‘landscape architect’. But only graduated landscape architects with a membership at DL may add “mdl” to its title.
Members of the association fill various positions; municipal or state, project planning or in operation and management. The workplaces include in private drawing rooms, in administrations, in cemeteries, in housing companies and in teaching or research.
Danish Landscape Architects takes care of the members’ professional interests, regardless of the work of the landscape architect.
We cooperate with Landscape Architects’ Association under JA, Danish Association of Architectural Firms, the Park and Nature Managers, the Association of Architects and Designers, Danish Gardeners, Danish Association of Architects, The Danish Town Planning Institute and Danish Lighting Center. The collaboration contributes to an individual and shared strength, and the diversity of professionalism increases.
We are part of the joint ‘Nordic Board’; a forum for landscape architectural associations. Outside the Nordic region, the association participates in international cooperation such as the International Federation of Landscape Architects (IFLA).
Students and graduates from the following programs can become a member of DL:
- University of Copenhagen:
