Climate changes are a global problem, a global problem experienced by humans in their local environment and society. Holstebro is one of the threatened cities in Denmark. This Project takes point of departure in an overall strategy made by the municipality of Holstebro. The overall strategy faces climate change related problems in the local environment. As parts of the overall strategy, pilot projects have to be developed, these pilot projects are placed in point of impact.

This thesis aims to design a Nature Laboratory as one of the pilot projects in relation to the overall strategy. The nature laboratory will preform a framework for, learning, knowledge sharing and public awareness and thereby affect the city in a larger scale. Designing for a functional and enriched sensorial experience are two major factors in designing and planning of the nature laboratory.

This project works with various dynamics, the changeability of nature, the changing water conditions, the diversity in users and the diverse understanding of nature. This thesis focuses on turning these dynamical aspects into qualities and potentials for Holtebro Nature Lab and the city.
