Martin has work experience from projects of various scale and type with focus on creating ecologically and economically sustainable landscapes firmly connected to the site. Over the years he’s worked as a landscape architect in Sweden, Estonia and China. Martin’s professional experience ranges from designing and building of private gardens, pocket parks and public installations to leading participatory workshops, urban design and green-blue infrastructure planning.
As of 2O18, Martin is pursuing his interest in urban wildlife as a PhD student. In his academic work, he investigates how the profession can ensure that urban wilderness is not only a passing trend, but the habitats created today are resilient towards future change of various scale and type. It is about linking the knowledge in contemporary research to practice and vice versa, and then making this knowledge usable in everyday work life. Aspects of aesthetics, perception, ecology, economy and maintenance are studied through the prism of predictable and unpredictable change.
