Marianne Levinsen Landskab: The campus area is located in the redundant railway line terrain of the former ”Frederiksbergbane”, which has been transformed into an open urban landscape. The promenade draws an urban feature through the campus and is used for movement through the area, linking significant spaces and locations. To convey the scale of the large building volumes and at the same time extend the characterful green space, a number of powerful groves of red oak trees have been planted. The promenade surface is made of in-situ poured concrete with circular holes for trees and different ornamental grasses – a stylised picture of dilapidated or worn out urban areas, where wild grasses and pioneer plants break through from below as soon as there is a hole or a crack in the trail.
