Grundberg, Julia, 2009. Att söka form. Second cycle, A2E. Alnarp: SLU, Landscape Architecture (until 121231)



Previously when I have made proposals for privately owned gardens, I have found it difficult to
find strong, extensive designs and to work with room and space. Since this is the field within
which I am going to work in the future I feel that I need more experience, reference material and
ideas on how I, in an early stage of the working process, can work with and consider room and
The aim of this project has therefore been to procure experience, reference material and ideas for
design of a garden in relation to space.
To procure experience and reference material I have, during the fall of 2008, made two incredible
study tours to France and to Japan. I have interviewed the landscaping architect Maria Arborgh
and studied literature. I have also used a garden outside of Gothenburg in which I have been able
to try out different thoughts and ideas regarding shape that have appeared during the course of
my work.
My conclusions about landscaping are that you should first find the different functions in the
garden. The next step is to find an overall theme or shape, use a small number of materials, build
a room with sealing, walls and portals with the help of vertical elements e.g. trees and hedges, and
create suspense in the movement through the garden by hiding and surprising.
