The Association of Danish Landscape Architects (DL) is an organization with influence in a number of professional industries, ministries and grassroots associations.
We aim to participate in the political debate and work continuously for an increased focus on the importance of landscape architecture and our work.
DL collaborates with several other landscape associations including the International Federation of Landscape Architects (IFLA), IFLA Europe and ‘Nordisk Styrelse’ (a forum for Scandinavian landscape associations). We also cooperate with:
- Danske Arkitektvirksomheder
- Park og Naturforvaltere
- Akademisk Arkitektforening
- Landskabsarkitektforeningen (LAF)
- Dansk Byplanlaboratorium
Our members work in very different positions; municipal, state, design and management. The jobs include studios, office departments, cemeteries, education and research.
Currently we are approximately 750 members of whom 200 are students.
In DL we maintain the members' professional interests regardless of their position.
