Under the title ’Settlement - Planning potentials in rural Denmark’, the project seeks to describe and understand the contemporary development in the rural areas in Denmark and to evaluate the future potential of the rural settlement as a typology.

Through iterations of an integrated design process, the Danish rural areas in relation to the large urban regions are found to hold a potential for a landscape settlement typology. The relevance of the typology is based on the qualities of the local communities and its’ relation to nature and picturesque Danish landscapes.

The prospect of the landscape settlement typology is illustrated through a design development of a specific site, between the ‘Triangle Region’ and Odense, determined by mobility and landscape relations.
