”The Danish landscape is characterised by its open fields, hedgerows and groves framed by forests,” says Charlotte Skibsted. “It’s straight-forward, calm and understated. I think that’s how most Danes view their environment, and that’s reflected in all areas of Danish design.” Charlotte Skibsted knows what she is talking about. With two architecture degrees behind her, she set up Skibsted Landscape Architects in the 1970s, and today her multi-award winning company is heavily involved in developing and maintaining Denmark’s outdoor spaces. Skibsted is a professional consultant to institutions such as the Danish National Museum and the Ministry of Ecclesiastical Affairs.
